lyrics

It's the weekend and I am determined to tear up this town,
After working all week all I seeks a release so I head to my
stomping ground,
The bartender asks me just what will it be,
I say something to break up this monotony,
She pours a four horseman, I'm ready to ride,
I shoot it down thinking it's gone be one of those nights,

[Chorus]

Shot after shot, Bar after bar,
Laughing away all the pain that exists in our hearts,
Our reasons are different and some of us simply will never know,
We ain't goin' down till the sun comes up,
Once the spirits start flowin' it's never enough,
When people ask me why the only thing I can say is that i'm,
Chasing this life away,

Now that we're seven rounds deep we agree that we're all feeling swell,
This night of joking and smoking and perhaps some toking is nowhere
near close to an end,
It's time to head to the late night spot,
Taking the backroads so we ain't harrassed by the cops,
'Cause they know this time of night were all bout raising some hell,
And everybody 'round knows that we do it so well,

[Chorus]

Bar after bar, Shot after shot,
Making the best of this life with what little we've got,
Our reasons are different and some of us simply will never know,
We ain't goin' down till the sun comes up,
Once the spirits start flowin' it's never enough,
When people ask me why the only thing I can say is that i'm,
Chasing this life away,

about

Mykal Morrison West Palm Beach, Florida

Mykal Morrison is an artist based out of West Palm Beach, Florida. His sound is a pleasant departure from the effect laden, overly processed music that floods the airwaves. His first effort is the full length album titled "Elemental". A collection of songs that are remnant of a better time in music. A time when you could get an album, just push play, and let it ride. ... more
