about

The first single from Ron Scalzo's forthcoming release, "I Gotta Rock" - Nov 2017 on Bald Freak Music

lyrics

You were my last hope
My last hope for love
I'm just a big dope
A big dope for love
And I've tried to put it all behind me
But I can't change the way I feel inside me
The heart I used to think should guide me
Is shrouded in thorns
But somehow it's still beating on

Don't tell me that you did your best
Don't tell me that

I was your last hope
Your last hope for love
You weren't trying
Swinging from vines and
Lying about so much stuff

You can run and you can even hide things
And I don't care 'bout how my stupid pride stings
The heart you use won't even try me
I'm finally reborn
But we are just way too far gone

"Smarten up," they said
"You don't know what you're doing"
"Smarten up," they said
"You know not what you do"
I know what I'm doing
This ain't about choosing
"Smarten up," they said

You were my last hope
Yeah, I was a big dope
And I've tried to put it all behind me
But I can't change the way I feel inside me
The heart I used to think should guide me
Won't kindly be scorned
But somehow it's still dreaming on

Don't tell me that you did your best
Don't tell me that
