Dinosaur Jr. - Get Me Lyrics




I don't see you, I won't call you
I don't know enough to stall you
Is it me, or is it all you?
Guess, it's on and on

On a day, maybe I'd show you
But it's the least of all I go through
But the thing is I don't know you
And it's on and on

Trembling words
Don't make my eyes close
And if anyone then you'd know
I can't find out 'cause it won't show
And it's on and on
Every dream is shot by daylight
And I pray that maybe you're right
But if you don't, maybe I might
'Cause it's on and on

When it takes too long
I lose it I'll just hang while you abuse it
If you knew then why'd you choose it
'Cause it's on and on

You're not gonna get me through this are you
You're not gonna get me through this are you

Anytime I'm there to show you
But if it takes too long I know you
Out the door just leavin' me screwed
And it's on and on
Everytime I try to fight it It's so hard to seem excited
And if you don't turn I'll bite it
And it's on and on

You're not gonna get me through this are you
You're not gonna get me through this are you

[Solo]

I don't see you, I won't call you I don't know enough to stall you
Is it me, or is it all you?
Yes, it's on and on
Every dream is shot by daylight
And I pray maybe that you're right
But if you don't maybe I might
'Cause it's on and on

[Solo]

Dinosaur Jr. Get Me Comments
  1. John R

    3 of the greatest solos ever recorded

  2. Tom Brady

    guitar God

  3. Froze Moments

    Oh’ man...this song puts that old familiar taste in my mouth, when all my best friends were still alive and it was just a bad habit.

    Shantyl Rogers

    You've just made me cry...i know EXACTLY what you mean .....❤

  4. M Turk

    Hands down my favorite DJ song the guitar solos are sublime

  5. Paul Mc C

    Best Song Ever?

  6. MrYodalegend

    Huh... never heard this song before today, but it's great! A crossword clue today was 'Feel the Pain', so I re-discovered that song, and that led me to this one. Kinda makes me miss the 90s. (Answer was "ACHE' for my fellow nerds)

  7. Ryan Haydon

    J Mascis is a guitar god. If I could only use one song to prove that to someone, this would be the one

  8. TheDeanMl79

    Yeaaahahahahhhhh.. chillll love that sound

  9. dallys porter

    i miss being young

  10. Will

    You’re not gonna get me through this are youuuuuuuoooouuuuuuuuu?

  11. David Hollifield

    Seen them live a bunch and they get better every time. Mr Smalls in Pittsburgh last fall was epic. Underrated songwriter and guitarist - top of my list. Makes it look way too easy live.

  12. MT_VU_RX jukebox hero

    Sounds good from the "Attitude Adjustment " lineup on WZBT 91.1 FM Gettysburg's address for the Best New Music.

  13. Christopher Walker

    This song's okay but my all time favorite song is 'cry and puke'. Cruddy name but GREAT song.

  14. Mike Seaquest

    What a beaut

  15. nashmeister76

    This song means the world to me

  16. Gareth Tatt

    It's defiantly wrabbit season

    Jesus Christ how he resolved the solo at 4:31

  18. Geronimo

    thouxan

    Melisa Rodriguez you seem interesting

  22. shay farley

    Late 90s, hanging out at the river, up the lake, summer time drives to no where in particular. House full of friends and music and pot most likely. Was an amazing time, no stress or worry. Such a different place back then.

  23. Jason Clark

    It's no secret anymore. J is one of the greatest guitar players of all time

  24. Shatterthewaves

    Always blasting this in my car, track 6 on repeat for days !

  25. Bruno Aziz

    YaggaYaggaYa

    Fernando Isaac Reyes Morales My friend, check out Wolf Alice, Savages, Young Fathers, Everything Everything and Polica, you will not be disappointed.

    Had to come here because the "official video" cuts of the 2nd solo, which is my all-time favorite piece of music.

    Mike Seaquest

    Can't cut this solo

    Melisa Rodriguez

    All the solos are amazi g . Increased in intesity and frustration ~420

  54. Anon yMous

    This song reminds me of the novel "The Sound and the Fury" by William Faulkner 

  55. jace elliott

    I was 17 when this came out and at college, awesome times, best of all there wasn't x factor around then!!!

    WTP G

    @jace elliott I was 17 in Amherst, MA at the time... so good.

    NiceShirt

    +jace elliott im only 15 but i really love this people would think i love pop etc but i end up loving amazing bands like this

    Cary Rumley

    +Don Hollen what was it like to be in fucking Amherst at that time? Must have been an experience. Dino J, Pixies, Etc.

    flopimus

    +Cary Rumley Seriously! i'm surprised they never collaborated

    WTP G

    Buffalo Tom, too. I remember when Buffalo Tom premiered on MtV, and called themselves a Boston band. I was upset at the time but, now that i'm older, i get it.

    The 5 college area was AMAZING back then. Amherst College had some pretty creative chemistry students :)

  56. Kim Capri

    captured genius...

    Riza31417

    @bob loblaw
    thanks.

    bob loblaw

    no probs brah

  61. bob loblaw

    I love this song so much. the melody, the rhythm, and his voice all come together to make a certain melancholy I feel an affinity with.

    PLEASE does anyone know what the lyrics mean (if anything at all)? I feel this song so much but I can't quite seem to decipher what it all means.

    Sam Brightwell

    I've always just taken it to be a love song about someone who couldn't care less, and is leading him on... It's on and on, you're out the door just leaving me screwed... you're not gonna get me through this are you?

    Dave-O

    +bob loblaw j's dad died around the time this record was written, and i think the 'you're not gonna get me through this are you' part might have something to do with that. a lot of j's love songs deal with disappointment, miscommunication and alienation, especially in regards to the early part of a relationship before trust is established. once he got married and settled down the same themes are still there but in the context of a steady relationship.

    shneizah

    This album was largely written with his ex in mind - Uma Thurman. So the story goes, anyway... google around...

    Dave-O

    shneizah he never dated Thurman .. that was just a gag in a video

  62. Carol

    ♥♥♥♥ me cago en vos, Mascis

  63. brian edward

  68. Mr C

    It's 4:04 and after, it's definitely 4:04 when i realised it,..... 4:04 onwards, it's fucking beautiful, .......after 4:04 I knew loving guitar music all these years was worth it!

  69. iuriSalvador

    Eu conheço : D e tenho uns amigos que conhecem tbm e gostam. Que bom que vc curte. Muito boa essa banda mesmo.

  70. Vincent Paul Saldutti

    4:04 and beyond gives me the effin chills! it's like it belongs there

  84. LTandDS

    I agree J is underated but how can you say Dylan is underated and unappreciated? Dylan is universally considered one of the most influential artists of all time. No underating there.
