Another amazing Matt original! His songs just keep getting better and better.

Well these are the lyrics I can come up with. Not sure about a few of them! Please let me know if you hear something else or can fill in the ? marks. Thanks!


Night after Night coming alive up on the crowded stage
There's nothing else I've ever felt that can be quite the same
Baby now and then I feel like I'm on fire
Then the lights come on again
I wake up in the morning
I don't know what state I'm in

Cause there's not a day goes by
I don't miss you every night
That I wish I could die (?)
You can't make love on the telephone
Nothing feels like home
When you ain't by my side
If you said the words you know I'd say goodbye
To this other life

Time after time I can go out
Hang with the best of them
What I don't say is I'm not the same
As the rest of them
Every now and then let a woman in
Let her think we're more than friends
Over and over and over again

Cause there's not a day goes by
I don't miss you every night
That i wish I could die (?)
You can't make love on the telephone
Nothing feels like home
When you ain't by my side
If you said the words you know I'd say goodbye
To this other life

guitar solo

Ohhh I'd do it for you
Yeah don't you know it
I'd do it for you
And girl I need you to hear it
I'd do it for you
Yeah you know you know I love you darling
I'd do it for you

Piano solo

If you said the words you know I'd say goodbye
Yeah yeah yeah your the only one who can get me through the night
Ohhh yeah through this other life
Ohhhhhhh

I listened to it on my headphones (it helps me hear much better!) and the line "I wish I could die" sounds like "I wish I could buy" but I'm not positive.

I was talking to Matt before the show and he told me he was gonna do this new song. I was so excited but I didn't wanna say anything on Twitter and spoil the surprise for everyone. I love this song soooo much though! He said he wrote it a long time ago but didn't really like it at the time so when I heard it the first time I was like, "WHAAAAAT! How did you not like this?!" haha. I'm glad he decided to play it for us.

I was wondering if he wrote it a while ago...now I know Smile Not sure why he didn't like it because it is an amazing song! I LOVE it! I can't imagine Matt writing a bad song! I'm so glad he decided to share it with us! I wonder what other material he has hidden?

I have no idea what he is singing in the line "i wish I could die" I heard die, cry, hide so I just chose a word....lol!

Thanks Christina for sharing the story! I was thinking the same thing...thinking this was a previous written song. It is so INCREDIBLE! He is too hard on himself. He probably has others which makes it so exciting. Ha!

I think the 3rd line is Maybe instead of Baby...what do you think?

So glad he shared it with us. I want a Double CD of all his songs recorded in the studio. I love you Hope this happens...but for now I would love a Single to promote! Love you Matty G!

Love you Guys! Cool
