  • Too many screamers
    Wearing a mask
    Too many dreamers
    Looking for the ones that last

    Too many eyes
    Looking for hope
    Too many tears
    Looking for a way to cope
    It's no joke

    It's just a sad song that pulls you along, yeah
    It's just a sad song, and it won't take long

    Too many thoughts
    Breaking your stride
    Too many Jekylls
    Feeling like a Mr. Hyde

    Too many clouds
    Darken your day
    Too many rain drops
    Falling on your thunder bay
    Everyday
    Oh yeah

    It's just a sad song that pulls you along, yeah
    It's just a sad song when you head on
    It's just a sad song that pulls you along
    It's just a sad song, and it won't take long

    Too many heartaches
    Waiting to strike
    Too many clowns
    Saying everything's alright

    Too many fires
    Scorching your mind
    Too many preachers
    Saying what you should find
    Just see the signs

    It's just a sad song that pulls you along, yeah
    It's just a sad song, and it won't take long

    It's just a sad song that pulls you along
    It's just a sad song, and it won't take long

    It's just a sad song, a sad song, yeah
    It's just a sad song when you head on

    It's just a sad song, sad song
    It's just a sad song and it won't take long Writer/s: Ric Ocasek

  • Richie Cozzette from Denver Co Usa U sure miss their sound! Takes me back to high school. Good times! Really good song. Wish they hadn't waited so long (1987-2011) for new music.
