Kearney, Mat - Straight Away Lyrics




This moment right here is one we can't suspend
Your breathe and mine tells me just where I have been
You know the song of long lost cause
We're running in circles and coming back again

Now could I go the long way
Taking the easy way down?
If I was wrong would you show me
Where all that I lost can be found?

'Cause you can shoot me straight
Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
What goes around now is coming back down today
You can shoot me straight away

Don't wanna fight and you don't wanna lose control
We're losing light and the night is getting cold
Everyone wants to hear their story told
We're not the only ones, we're not the only ones

And now could I go the long way
Taking the easy way down?
If I was wrong, would you show me
Where all that I lost can be found?

'Cause you can shoot me straight
Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
What goes around now is coming back down today
You can shoot me straight away

And you wanted to fly and leave it behind
But you know it's gonna come back one day

'Cause you can shoot me straight
Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
What goes around now is coming back down today
You can shoot me straight away

  1. brokeass sizt

    WHY IS THIS SONG NOT GETTING MILLION VIEWS????!!! IT’S REALLY GREATTT

  2. Chuck Bartowski

    Mat Kearney and Dallas Green (City & Colour) are the only two artists i like every single song.

  3. Juju Bee

    Traveling from Cali to Washington I heard his song on the radio in 2002, when I found out who it was I ordered his CD and have been a fan since!! True story 😉

  4. Laplata911

    Terrible Person From Louisiana

    Wisconsin Rail Productions

    20th Century because I’ve been a mat Kearney and Coldplay fan for so long I can’t really hear it, but if I really listen I do hear where your coming from... in some places he really does sound like Chris Martin

  6. Swede McGuire

    In kitchy  understandings of Irish 'culture' there is the belief that the Irish are predisposed to and revel in bullshit/blarney. But there has always been a strong respect for groundedness in the Irish. Van Morrison, the Pogues, the Cranberries, are famed modern expressions of that vein of Irish expression, there are innumerable others because the Irish know sorrow/struggle are often central to life.
    Kearney is clearly an American-Irish exponent of that kind of clear eyed but passionate courage in the daily adversity of living. He makes inspired art out of his understanding that the world isn't what the marketers push on us, its deeper, and its often very hard to live in.

  7. Rachel J

    This guy can sing. Lifetime fan of Mat, I tell you what.

  13. Doubleinfinity101

    :'( I don't know what I would do without Mat Kearney :'( he just helps me so much

  14. ToP-Danger

    really he is awesome

  15. 90s were the best

    'Down' was one of the top Christian radio songs last year I believe.

  16. Wesley

    A lot of people don't seem to know that Mat Kearney is actually Pop music ...

    Wisconsin Rail Productions

    Wesley I get really mad when my friends call him county 🙃

  17. redskinsforthewins

    Couldn't agree more.

  18. redskinsforthewins

    I kinda agree with you about keeping Mat Kearney a secret. If he becomes too popular, he could fall into the trap of pop music!

    Timothy Ward

    redskinsforthewins he already has so much good music it doesn't matter what happens now ! If he becomes popular or signs a deal , what is logged in is done .

    Terrible Person From Louisiana

    if he doesnt get popular enough, he may not have enough money to survive :0

  19. Karen Cooper

    I have been "converting" people one at a time. I have yet to find someone that does not like him once they listen :)

  20. SlayershotNirc

    He's on the Christian radio station where I live.

  21. The Trippy Shit

    Why do I keep hearing he sounds like Chris Martin... Welll FYOU!!!!
    Chris Martin sounds like him!!

  22. xmmichael

    this song is so underrated

  23. Raynwoke

    These are the sort of musicians that should be winning Grammys. The world needs more musicians like this man. 0 dislikes. Hope some troll won't just come n ruin it.

  24. Volkens Elizort

    @horselover146515 Can I just copy your whole comment and paste it for my own lol. I agree with you completely. They never play what's needed to be heard on the radio, only the stupid catchy songs like all we always feel like partying and not gloomy.

  25. dreamfulartist

    Do you know how ecstatic I'd be if they played his songs on the radio? I never hear any of them... and they're all fantastic, wonderful, and actually have MEANING. Do you get that with the pop-shit you do hear on the radio... absolutely not. Thank you Mat Kearney for creating such beautiful music. <3

  26. Allie Campbell

    @okaygirl141 radio ruins

  27. okaygirl141

    i wish the radio would play more of his songs which actually have more meaning than the same old I'm-goin-to-the-club-and-bring-some-chick-home crap!

  28. Order of the Phoenix

    @ChazRalls I totally agree with that statement. Mat is amazing. :D He's definatly better than people like Lady Gaga. and I love this song.
