Joan Jett And The Blackhearts - Right 'Til The End Lyrics




I'm on a dirt highway
The sky was streamin' red
I told you my rules
I guess you didn't hear a single word I said

You tried to change me
What a surprise
'cause now I see the tears they're falling
And they're from you eyes

Right til the end
I want my way
Right til the end
Don't care what ya say
You knew the first day

I'm in my empty room
I had to turn you loose
Don't be like me
I don't want compassion like I want the truth

Don't want to hurt you that's not me
The only choice I got is hurt you or to set you free

Right til the end
I want my way
Right til the end
Don't care what ya say

It's so easy to fall out of love
You do not feel the same
It's so easy to fall out of love
When one will never change and I know

Right til the end
I want my way
Right til the end
Don't care what ya say
You knew the first day

Joan Jett And The Blackhearts Right 'Til The End Comments
  1. Ben Culture

    Co-writer of this song, Jules Shear, has been my very favorite songwriter since 1985, when he co-wrote all the songs on an album by the Cars's lead guitarist Elliot Easton. It's called _Change No Change_ and it's extremely good, but Jules's own albums are even better. Most of his income comes from others covering his songs. I loved Cyndi Lauper's cover version of "All Through the Night", but the Bangles's "If She Knew What She Wants" wasn't _half_ as good as his original! He'd had a band called Jules and the Polar Bears, writing all the songs himself, packing exquisite lyrics in an unceasing torrent at a very high pitch. His masterpiece is his first solo album, _Watch Dog_, and he has written in almost every style, from acoustic folk to synth-pop. He is not well-known by the general public, but the music industry knows and respects him, sends struggling musicians to him, using him as a "song doctor". He helped a young Matthew Sweet with almost every song on his early album _Earth_, and to this day you can hear Mr. Shear's influence on Mr. Sweet's best work. 
    Having said all that, I don't hear much of his influence in this song. It sounds mostly like Joan's music. I think she had the basic concept of the lyrics, but Jules helped her refine them into memorable lines that rhymed and fit neatly. (As a counter-example, "Any Weather" sounds far more like Dave Grohl's work than Joan's.)
    I hope Joan and Jules collaborate again! Jules once did an album of all-original duets, with women like Roseanne Cash, Paula Cole, Margo Timmins (from Cowboy Junkies), the legendary Carole King, and others. I wonder if he invited Joan but she couldn't do it. It would be awesome to hear my favorite songwriter and my favorite female musician duetting and harmonizing! Yeah, I'm kicking Kate Bush down to #2. Sure, she's a genius and all, but Kate just doesn't have the addictive, attention-demanding energy of Joan Jett! 
    Thank you for posting this song, and thanks to anyone who reads this whole comment.
