Theres something in the street tonight
Dunno what what it is, but it wont keep quiet
_ on your radio brodcaster
Theres something in the air tonight
And it turning in to a full fledge riot
_


Yeah!


ohhhh
Night life
Im gonna come right back for you


Theres something in the world today
Dont know what it is but it sure smells rotten
_
Theres someone in your home tonite
You think you know who they are
But something just aint so right
_ but they dont feel the same about me

ohhhh
Night life
Im gonna come right back for you


I run and run and
I ride and I ride
And I knew that I knew that I tried and tried
And I know it was all for you and me

    General Commenti think the chorus goes "all all all all all nine lives, i'm gonna come right back for you" makes sense to me anyways. this song is really good but nobody likes it because it isn't "punk" and on lets go or rancid 2003 or rancid 1993 and these are the same kids that think and out come the wolves is a really punk album, i think that life won't wait is their best album even though it's not straight up punk, the music is all good even if there are horns and all the lyrics are really really good too, plus, there are even punk songs on it! bloodclot, black lung, leicester square, warsaw, 1998, they're all good good good songs along with the rest of the cd, not every band can be "punk" all the time, at least not to the standards of everyone, i hope people don't get discouraged by this album because these hardcore punks can't accept a little change.

    General CommentThis song is really good, and very underrated. Love the verse chord progression and the urgent, edgy mood of the song.

    Ryan Horstman, it's funny how the 'hardcore' fans are against Life Won't Wait, considering that Rancid have been a Clash tribute band from the start, and this album merely follows the same progression The Clash did with Sandinista! (their last good album). For instance, the song 'Life Won't Wait' is just soo Clash, and a number of other songs on here have a reggae flavour.
    LWW also has 'Black Lung', which is imho the best ever Rancid punk song.

    And seriously Kpizzle, don't post lyrics unless you actually know what they are...
