Gettin' the Band Back Together the Musical - One of Those Guys Lyrics

Get The Band Back...
Ridiculous
Bunch of forty something
dreamers past their prime
Of that Rock Star track
I quickly left behind
Cause dreams don't matter
When the rent is coming due
You play it safe
And let the fantasy slip through
But sometimes I close my eyes
And I find myself back in yesterday
And taken away
Still trying to be
One of those guys from Asbury Park
One of those guys who shreds the guitar
I'm making noise
While my boys
Keep playing along
I'd point the mic out
While Jersey rocks out to my song
As we dare the sun to rise
But I'm not one of those guys

I took the safe road
To a life of stocks and bonds
And bonded years
The same day reloaded
And hindsight crystal clear
I watched the dow climb
Then I felt it ricochet
I played it safe
Only to watch it slip away
But sometimes I close my eyes
And I find myself back in yesterday
And taken away
Still dying to be
One of those guys who's fronting the band
One of those guys who's in demand
Shining brightly
While they jam nightly to my song
I'm at eleven, while they're in heaven
All night long

So, it's no surprise
That teenage dreams are flooding in
But open up my eyes
And let reality set the stage
And then...

Remind me again
I'll never be
One of those guys from Asbury Park
One of those guys who chases his star
No building schemes off old dreams
That I forgot
Just let the past hurry past
Like second thoughts
As I swallow the compromise
Cause I'm not one of those guys...
