Gaslight Anthem, The - Here Comes My Man Lyrics




And how much time do you think that we have?
If I wanted to, I could start over again
Let the good night decide who she wants me to find
And I'll never let you drop another tear in my eye

Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man

Yeah

And all my life I never had a chance
Don't you think I knew about all your pretty girlfriends
But I waited for you, gave you time to decide
But you never saw it from anybody else's side
So I packed up my things and I faced up my doubts
You know I think I will grow my hair back out
Nevermind what you think
Nevermind what you like
I'll take it out to the streets for somebody else to admire

Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man

Maybe time will tell you
Why I got so much hell to sell you
Please, please understand me
Oh you can't just dance around me
Maybe your work will love you
When I'm just not there to hold you
Maybe your pride can be your companion
Oh but I just won't be there to stand for it
Not one more minute will I stand for it

Oh-oh

You found me singing, baby

Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Singing oh sha-la-la, oh sha-la-la
Listen honey here comes my man
Here comes my man
Here comes my man
Here comes my man
Here comes my man
Here comes my man

  6. Connor Macdonald

    Looking in the comment section wondering why it looks like a shit show. Recognizing that you couldn't reply to comments on YouTube 7 years ago. A simpler time

  7. QU Λ NTUM PRODUCTIONS

    10/10. fantastic.


    masterpiece.


    and i like the fact that it's from a woman's point of view.


    as the band said in an interview, "there's not enough songs from the point of view of a woman." (i think that's the correct quote)

  18. Jason Price

    Elisha Cuthbert. Canadian. Vacations on PEI. Underrated actress. Beautiful.

  19. ALEJANDRA MARIA

    And how much time do you think that we have?
    If I wanted to, I could start over again

  20. Rob Murphy

    This song is in the point of view of a woman. And I love it! 10/10!

  21. Kiwi_91

    Elisha Cuthbert isn't why everyone should be here, shes just an actor. not the highly talented masterminds behind this amazing song

  22. Jason

    One their best songs...video is beautifully shot

  23. Matthew Thompson

    when I hear this song it makes me thing of a guy waiting for a lover/ boyfriend to come to terms with himself..

  24. Matt Kenneth Villegas

    I came here for Elisha!!

  28. MisterMan795

    I love this song so much but I don't know why in the beginning and even now I think the sha la la part sounds a little weird lmao

    Adam Ontiveros-Oberg

    I always thought it was supposed to be lackadaisical, sort of singing to herself in a relaxed, happy way that her real, happy relationship is finally coming towards her.

  29. beseeingyou6

    Kim Bauer? The man that's coming might kidnap you, watch out!

  30. seranoxa

    just discovered this band like 1 week ago, and ive been spamming their songs ever since and still not getting sick of em. the voice and the way the lyrics are delivered is so amazing.

    Thiago Falcão

    Did you try Horrible Crowes? Same singer.

  31. Fabricio Miranda de Almeida

    I come here for my big love Elisha ❤️😍

    Damo The man

    Stay away bro,i'll fight you for her!😉

  32. Nick Selm

    for the last few albums' worth of singles/videos, the crowd scenes and characters look like they're at a The Fray or Owl City concert, not a GLA show. hahaha

  33. Jason Hollenbach

    how does anyone thumb down this video unless they've been burned by their own mistakes before

  34. Max Maexchen

    i love this song

  35. houcine malek

    Elisha si elle save combien je l,aime elle me tuera

  36. houcine malek

    LA CHANSON TOUCHE MES SENTIMENT DE REVOLTE

  37. houcine malek

    Sa beauté
    me rend comme un taureau très fort et je veux déchirer la super jupe d'elisha

  38. DestinationDecklyn

    this is just an all round class song unreal

  39. Ivy Days

    I heard this in a McDonald's

    Mega Rockstar

    Leah Hayward that's actually pretty cool

    Logan Hayes

    Lol like a commercial or an actual Mcdonald's? Kind of a bummer either way I guess

  40. Painted Gypsy Co

    True to life

  41. Harsh Kumath

    Fantasy girl!!

  42. holidayonion

    Listening to this with my custom EQ is awesome. The Gaslight Anthem is awesome. Brian, Benny, Alex, and Alex are awesome. Thumbs up for TGA.

  43. C M

    I'll never let you drop another tear in my eye

  44. MisterMan795

    And I'll never let you drop another tear in my eye

  47. Kaleigh Castillo

    How'd this happen?!?

  48. Rom ain

    She's the best actress, I like her smile ^^ I'm here just for Elisha but the song is good too :)

    Armaniyo Cruze

    agreed brother

  49. Craig B

    I will always remember..: the girl next door.

  50. h0pesfall

    Elisha Cuthbert is just one of a handfull ladies who gets prettier in age...

    Thomas Knott

    agreed. and seeing her in a gas light anthem video is the definition of awesome

    Daina Tennant

    I agree! I love her, and Gaslight Anthem (although admittedly this was never one of my fave songs). One of the only other people I truly feel gets prettier with age is AJ Cook (JJ on Criminal Minds).

    andreaswudi

    She will always be the girl next door...

  51. hrubax

    Elisha!!! <3

  52. ladonna l

    pooooop

  53. Girr

    You'll miss me

  54. Meri Thomas

    is Gaslight Anthem getting big? if so, that's exciting. we need more music like this. =)

    Mega Rockstar

    Zach Hart I heard that they will be playing on 1st of June. I think this might mean they will start playing again as TGA

    Zach Hart

    Mega Rockstar that's awesome! Do you know where they'll be playing?

    Mega Rockstar

    Zach Hart I don't, but I think you can find it on Google because that's how I found out about the event. You have just to write Gaslight Anthem on google and it should appear a thing where says "Events" and if you click on that, it should tell you where it is

    Abby Strobel

    I hope!

    Ben Dover

    Mega Rockstar It was a one time event man, they've been split for a while now unfortunately, but Brian's solo stuff is still rolling

  55. Dallas Smith

    and there sets the Ferris wheel, and shes patiently waiting. carnival lights, 4th of July,boardwalk talks in the dead of the night.

  65. AllenTV

    Elisha Cuthbert shows her Girl next door character here and i love it!

    Daren Redman

    +AllenTV I have that movie lol I like her too....but this is definitely not her character lol

  66. AllenTV

    The girl next door

  67. Daniel Day

    This song is pure magic. This, in my opinion, is the single best song the band has ever recorded. The introductory notes backboned by acoustic chords is genius, and the lyrics are some of the most personal and affecting that Brian has ever written. 10/10.

    thefives7ar

    Daniel Day No way. American Slang and 59 sound have multiple songs on each album that are better.

    Eric Keegan

    Agreed, it's genius

    Carlos 6

    Great expectations is a different level to this

    Ryan C

    Carlos 6

    I agree, those songs were so rich and deep. That's the stuff he built up over his life, it was kinda spent a couple albums ago. Which is fine, probably why he wants to move on.

    Brett Henry

    This is a good song but they have so many great songs , his solo albums and horrible crowes you cannot go wrong

  68. Benny Bobadilla

    "All my life I never had a chance" anybody else ever look back on all the crap they've been through and think this exact same thing?

  69. Glenn Haines

    great pixies song theif or sumptin tss tss

  70. Dave McDermott

    this could of been where against me was if there singer stayed in the closet

    Cora D

    +Dave McDermott what the fuck does that mean?

  71. Cristian Martinez

    señor-rolon!

  72. [email protected] Candylee811

    There pretty good. What attracts me about them is there feel for old school rock. So on my 45th bd i picked the design for the "you got lucky" cover on my cake. I'm really diging the band and thier style.

  73. mark quinn

    I once dated Elisha Cuthbert!!!!...........................................................................................................................Then I woke up......

  74. spongebob murmur

    elisha <3

  75. The Centre

    I'm disappointed there was no Mountain Lion!

    Edward Baumbarger

    The soda?

  76. Rafael Henrique

    Please, share this album on Deezer :(

  77. Cheska Rodrigo

    Elisha Cuthbert though

  78. Martin kneller

    Awesome band

  79. archechme

    The only thing I hate about this song is the "oh sha la la" it just sounds silly. Otherwise, fantastic song.

  80. Nari Shemintarc

    I love the song, but I REALLY don't get the video... Did they break up?

    John Zackarias

    Yup. She has this dream/vision where she realizes that the relationship she wants isn't the one she's in. So at the end, she chooses to walk past him to symbolize her being done with him.

  81. BoyfromSevilla

    elisha cuthbert

    Ben Duncan

    Justin Russell

    Abdul Rashid

    manhattan!!! dude you dont even know how lucky you are. i live in fucking africa man. i dont know when i'll get to see them, if ever.

    Kiwi_91

    Abby Strobel

    I came here for the song gaslight anthem has been part of my life since I was very young

  94. Agha Shoaib

    My eyes were only starring at Elisha Love you girl <3 :*

  95. Johmathan .B. Swift

    You can hear the jangling's of the guitarist from a band member The Byrds, Roger McGuinn. Mr Easy Street himself,, Bruce, is at the soulful open influence to this incredible band. The Gaslight Anthem sounds burn truthful to guide our hearts to what great music is all about, the freedom of music.. If Graham Parson, are Grievous Angel, was still here, he'd be proud of these boy's. He is in spirit and sound through this talented group. This is the new Country Alternative. Top Notch.

    peepsk771

    This is a great song...had to listen more than once. 

    Johmathan .B. Swift

    @peepsk771 Bit a Bruce. Bit of the Byrds.The opening jingle jangling guitar. Roger inspired. and some of the honesty of The Flying Burrito Brothers truth and soul. Everything to like. They have some really other good songs. Check out The Horrible Crows." I 'll take it out to the streets for somebody else to admire."

  96. Paul Flaks

    Awesome band!

  97. Aurimas .Maldzius

    Girl Next door <3

  98. CareandCompassion

    I know her feel, first dood looked lame tho, shoulda been Brian
