"Song Away" as written by and Benjamin Grubin....
Make me a deal and make it good for me
I won't get full of myself, coz I can't afford to be
This is small town music, this is big town music
He's ahead of his time you know but, he can't use it
If only he could prove it

Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Its just a song away

Hey

See what your man has done to the world
See what the world has done to your man
You know I'm leaving you, you don't need me
Lovin' you wasn't always so easy

This is believe me music, this is forget me music
This is who can love me you know, this ain't no Roxy Music
This is new form music, this is old form music
This is I paid attention not some makes his prediction music
Oh he could let me use it

Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Its just a song away

Not wanting to write a truthful song over an eighties groove
I like to let you know I'll always be straight with you
I stole my personality from an anonymous source
And I'm gonna pay for it too, I don't feel bad about that
Give me my chance back

This is on the rise music, this I novelty music
This is who can blame music, I don't get fooled by it
This is where DYI go music, this is come home music
This is down to the wire I'm such a perfect angel music.
Who really tries

Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Its just a song away

This is success music and what's it to ya?
My lawyer always says these are the fact about the future well

Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away

Tomorrows just a song away, a song away, a song away
Its just a song away.

    General CommentI love this song, it's just so fun and great to dance too. I totally agree with the bob dylan thing too.

    But i hear it as
    'I stole my personality from an anonymous source,
    And I'm getting paid for it too, I dont feel bad about that'

    and

    'This is where'd you go music, this is come home music,
    This is down to the wire I'm searching for a perfect angel music.'

    i might be wrong though. 8)

    General CommentI totally agree with the Bob Dylan thing! I also hear a little Bruce Springsteen in the chorus, no?
    Anyways, looking at the lyrics I feel like this song was definitely written to a record label. I've seen at least two other songs ("Love Song" by Sara Bareilles and "Grace Kelly" by Mika) that were written for the same cause, and this is definitely one of them.
    The first verse is like a hopeful young artist waiting for someone to sign them and he's humble because he "can't afford" not to be.
    Then, after the chorus, he explains that his music does not conform to any particular genre; it's just good.
    The next verse is telling the place (company, producer, whatever) that they're corrupt and his band refuses to conform to their idea of "good music.
    After that, the artist still believes that he shouldn't change his band's style just to make money, but they're all kind of broke and need someone to take them.
    Next, the artist says that his kind of music is up-and-coming (and whoever wants to change it is an idiot).
    And then this line:
    "This is success music and whats it to ya?
    My lawyer always says these are the fact about the future"
    I think that just about seals the deal, they're getting the hell out of that label and will refuse to sign with anyone else who wants to change them.
    Oh, and the chorus? That's just plain catchy. And, you know, "Tomorrow this song could be a total hit, it's such a shame if you don't try to get in on this..."

    That's my interpretation... maybe it's wrong? Maybe it's right? Who knows? Either way, great song. =]

    General CommentThe lyrics above are wrong, it's "this is I paid attention now so this is prediction music"

    General CommentI loved this song due to the upbeat sound but when I started listening to it mindlessly this line kept standing out "look what your man has done to the world, look what the world has done to your man" and the "who could love me" sort of thing.

    This is big-time what goes on in so many relationships. I met my wife (now of 16 years) but I still feel like that kid who met her when I had just turned 18 and wasn't ready for marriage or the responsibility to take care of her.

    Now that line "look what the world has done to your man" is how I feel a lot of times, the world weighs on you as time goes on, specially when there's a woman (and kids?) you love who you want to be able to rely on you.

    The song is about a man unable to deal with responsibility, believing he is unworthy and he makes it a "song away" as he leaves making it light but - it's not a happy song really. Not at all.
