When the morning came I was up before first light,
And your bed was made...must'a cut out sometime last night,
And my heart beat started pounding out a rhythm in my brain,
A voice from deep inside said, "You've got to be insane",
Everyone knows how this old story goes,
So I got in that taxi... drank my conscience away.

If you're gonna be there - be there
If you're gonna stay... stay tonight,
Start livin', out with the old, I'm on the up...
Must be the good life

I went to your friend's house and begged you to open the door,
With your hands on your hips you spoke while I sat down on that floor,
Two dishes in the kitchen sink, the way you treat me when you drink,
Don't look so superior...you give your opinion,
You think I don't know how you act on your own,
Then just who are those names on your cell phone anyway?

If you're gonna be there - be there
If you're gonna stay... stay tonight,
Start livin', out with the old, I'm on the up...
Must be the good life

You're a cool breeze in the setting sun,
New Year's, the Fourth, wrapped into one,
You make me want to be someone that you could look up to...

If you're gonna be there - be there
If you're gonna stay... stay tonight,
Start livin', out with the old, I'm on the up,
Must be the good life,

Come on get loved,
(Oooh...)
Come on and try,
(Be there)
Come on now, what are you waiting for?
(Be there)

Come on get loved,
Come on and try,
(And be there)
Come on now, what are you waiting for?
(Be there...)

Come on get loved,
Come and try,
Come on now, what are you waiting for?
(Be there)

Come on get loved,
Come and try,
Come on now, what are you waiting for...?

When the morning came...I was up before first light...
