Shut Up And Dance — Save It Til The Mourning After lyrics

Say it first
For me now.
Say it first
For me now. For me now.

A teenage marvel, all of sixteen
Had great dreams of bein' a beauty queen.
Well now she's part of the system.
Y'see her parents tried but she just wouldn't listen.
Dropped out of school,
Fifteen years old and she acted the fool.
She thought life was a dream,
When her friends called her club she just holds her head and screams.
But it's too late
Life wasn't great but she just couldn't wait to be mature
And explore. The father of the child clean walked out the door.
Didn't wanna know.
Came home one day packed his things and had to go.
Makes you sit and wonder how.
Just say a prayer for me now.

Don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)
No no, don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)

White old man who you see on the streets
With a bottle to his lips every week.
He didn't always be that way
But look how his life's gon' changed.
He used to be someone
Now everyone thinks he's a bum and the kids just run.
Plus they like to tease, they thrash their knees
And say his clothes has fleas.
People all over are dyin'.
Politicians keep on lyin'.
They gotta spend my money on war
Yet we can't feed the poor.
I wish my lips on a yacht,
I poured my lips on the doorway of a shop.
But don't ask me how, just say a prayer for me now.

Don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after, no no. (For me now)
Save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)
Don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after, no no. (For me now)
Save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)

I see things through adult eyes
But when I was young I wasn't quite so wise.
A lot of things would pass me by
But now when I see these things I ask why
Is the world this way? Why are kids on my streets scared to go out and
Play?
Why do old folks shar across the street whenever I walk by?
If the wheeling for dealing for stealing
And the temptation's is appealing?
But I know what a change soon come
With the risin' of the sun.

Don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after, no no. (For me now)
Save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)
Don't save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after, no no. (For me now)
Save your breath for me now (Say it first)
Save it til the morning after (For me now)
