Come On Out

Album: Hollywood Park (2020)
  • Black lungs, headlights
    Heading off to the city tonight, out the
    Front door, turn right
    I was alone, alright, alright, alright
    I wonder what they'll think of me, I'll
    Run away, run away
    This is my town, this is my night
    Heading off to the city tonight

    And she said, "Come on, out with it, come on, out with it"
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it

    Hard words on a hot night
    I'll have a beer, won't you turn out the light?
    From the front door I could hear it right
    I'm just running dumb and dumb and dumb and dumb
    I wonder if I'll be turning back
    I got twenty bucks in a pocket with my stash
    I'm not afraid, not your "good night"
    I'm just a shadow of a shadow tonight

    And she said, "Come on, out with it, come on, out with it"
    Come on, out with it, come on out

    And the night shadows watching
    The darkness approaching
    You came for a life in the park
    So you stand on the stage at such a young age
    As you're feeling around in the dark
    And your mother, she's calling
    You feel your hopes falling
    And there's nowhere to run to tonight
    Just his fist on your face now
    You hope to replace how
    the emptiness fills you inside

    Break my fall
    Break my fall
    Break my fall
    Break my fall
    Break my fall
    Break my fall

    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it

    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it
    Come on, out with it, come on, out with it Writer/s: Mikel Jollett
