"Anyway (Any Time Now)" as written by and Richard On Marc Andrew Roberge....
Never say that nothing ever came from a mouse anyway
Crawled into my house, took my cat away
Don't let your brain tell your mind that it must say
That nothing ever came from a mouse anyway
Anyway

Never say that nothing ever came from a gnat anyway
Flew into my ear and then he done flown away
Always causing aggravation so can't you ever say
That nothing ever came from a gnat anyway
Anyway, anyway, anyway

Something always comes from the music anyway
Came into my life and it stole me blues away
Oh, my stereo is my best friend every day
And this music is my blood, it's my blood
It always comes and goes, but it never floods
Something always comes, something always goes
Something always comes from the music
Something always comes from the music anyway
Anyway, anyway, anyway

Don't ya feel that this music flows
Don't ya feel like it's life
Well I do, well I certainly do
I can't live without this music in my blood
Well it gets me up when I'm feeling down
And I cannot sleep when this music is around
I live to move
And I know that there's something there
Filling me up, this music
A wise man once said
A wise man once said when he told me
One good thing about music
When it hits you, you feel no pain

Something always comes and it always goes
It will be there to the end after everything is gone
The music
Ah, it will, to the end
Something always comes, something always goes
Something always comes and it goes
Something always comes from the music anyway
Anyway, anyway, anyway

    General CommentI love how they added the line from the Bob Marley song Trenchtown Rock "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." O.A.R. is such an amazing band. Never pass up an opportunity to see them live. That is a truly great experience.

    General CommentThe lyrics were written a while back and expanded much more on the animal thang, but we kind of turned it into a song about our love of music. The mouse and gnat, among other things, have their purpose and can't be denied their place around us. Well, neither can music. A wise man once said that one good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

    General Commentyou no how in a lot of o.a.r. songs they mention a wise man. do you think that guy might be bob marley because in these lyrics they say"A wise man once said...a wise man once said when he told me,
    One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain" and thats from trenchtown rock by bob marley. idk just curious

    General Commentyea they did take the line from Bob Marley's song Trenchtown Rock........Marc says that Bob Marley is a huge influence for him and that he purposely used that quote in their song.......in Night Shift...Stir It Up they invite Junior Marvin from Bob Marley's band on stage to sing with them......great song....so simple but really fun...........the Live From Madison Square Garden version is incredible......

    General CommentI feel that this song is about using the power of music to achieve a great amount of happiness in your life. I know for the
    most part all the members of o.a.r. came from small towns and homes, and their combined love of music allowed them
    all the perhaps be underestimated at first. But with the power of that love, they stuck through and have become
    one of the most influential bands on our/my generation.
