Billy Squier - Shocked Straight Lyrics




And so the knife comes down...another curtain falls
And no one hears the sound...and no one takes the call
From me and my anxiety...locked up in these four walls

I come to you now I'm alone...with my defenses down
I tell you everything I need...I get down on the ground
I always know that when I go...that I'll be back again

Shocked straight--doctor can you get my medicine
Shocked straight--doctor can't you see the shape I'm in
Shocked straight--doctor when you gonna let me in

If I could listen to my mind...and keep the world outside my door...
But time has opened up my eyes and shown me somethin' more
Now all I want is to be free...and get up off the floor

Why can't you look into my heart...
Why can't you ever let me know
You're always takin' me apart...you're never lettin' go
There's always somethin' on your mind...
This ain't reality

Shocked straight--doctor can you get my medicine
Shocked straight--doctor can't you see the shape I'm in
Shocked straight--doctor when you gonna let me in

Why you be so hard
Why you be so hard
Why you be so hard

I know it's gonna take some time...for me to straighten out my head
To say what's on my mind...to hear those words I said
And while I'm tryin' to learn to feel...
You keep on tellin' me...

Shocked straight--doctor can you get my medicine
Shocked straight--doctor can't you see the shape I'm in
Shocked straight--doctor when you gonna let me in
Shocked straight...
Shocked straight...
Shocked straight...when you gonna let me in
Why you be so hard
Why you be so hard
Why you be so hard

  1. Rod Strachan

    Top Shelf song from a super album!!!

  2. Ron DiFabbio

    one of the most underrated rockers of all time

  3. barbara lindgren

    BEFORE OR AFTER?

  4. lobmo

    I'm sure it was. It really was his last rock album. He's still a rich man just off royalties from Big Beat. I'm sure Jay Z's 99 problems made him a cool million alone! He's the most sampled rock artist in history! So yeah it's his turn!

  5. TheRevengeancer

    Listening back on this, it sounds so much like The Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go."

    This is so much better though, thanks for the upload.
