Gaslight Anthem, The - Mulholland Drive Lyrics

Did you sleep last night and do you remember dreams?
Do I ever cross your mind and do you ever think of me?
When you think about your life are there things you would reverse?
I still remember holding you, just out of sight of her
In the deep, dark parking lot pressed up against my car
With your hands around my neck I felt the pounding of your heart
And the summer night was giving in to the lure of Autumn’s sway
I can’t seem to forget that night or how I heard you say

That I’d just die if you ever took your love away
Oh and I'd just die if you ever took your love away
Would you miss me if I was gone and all the simple things were lost?
Would you ever wait on me to say
Oh that I’d just die if you ever took your love away

And I can still recall the hour when you first let down your walls
I thought I might've died right there floating up above it all
But it scared you love, to need someone, so you killed it all instead
But in the mist up on Mulholland, I could've sworn I heard you say

That I’d just die if you ever took your love away
Oh and I would just die if you ever took your love away
Did you miss me when I was gone and the simple things we lost?
I was aching to hear you say
Oh that I’d just die if you ever took your love away

That I’d just die if you ever took your love away
Yes and I would just die if you ever took your love away
Did you miss me when I was gone and the simple things we lost?
I was aching to hear you say
Oh that I’d just die if you ever took your love away

And did you miss me when I'm gone?
And the simple things we used to rely on?
Who came to wipe your tears away?
Who came to bring back your dignity baby?
And who came to drive you around this town
Like I used to drive you all around with the radio on
Through the mist on Mulholland

Gaslight Anthem, The Mulholland Drive Comments
  1. Skip Jones

    The only bad thing is he’s not jay-z. (Sarcasm)

  2. J Lansdale

    This song is spicy

  3. Paul Jones

    does she know it's about her (oakman GA)

  4. Randy Olsen

    love this song... dont loose the dream boys. keep making music

  5. Monkey Warhol

    I love this song, but isn't the line, "Do I ever cross your mind and do you ever think of me" a bit redundant? Both statements are basically saying the exact same thing! ;)

    diego garcia

    i think thats point of it like the desperation of wanting to be loved like he loves her. at least thats my interpretation

    Amanda Di Giorgio

    haha oh well that's a good point. but I would say "cross your mind" is not something deep or complex, that she would just remember him for a second or two. and "think of me" would be deep, like she would spend some time thinking about it? idk. anyways it is a really god point lol.


    The terms "cross your mind" and "think of me" are not equivalent.

    If someone crosses your mind it means you've recalled their name or memory for some reason, while thinking of someone implies a deeper and more profound level - with actual thought involved, if you please.

  6. 3XNER

    What why is the drummer shit in this song? :o

    Matt Horne

    @Olivere118 what do you mean? Benny's drumming is solid here, just like everywhere else...

    Sf Whiskey

    +GreenIce101 right


    +Olivere118 I struggled to come to terms with his drumming. When he plays he's got a weak wrist and very much looks like an amateur at times but his style very much fits in with the band and once you can hear it, you'll be happy you did.

  7. Dean Winchester

    I love this song so much

  8. Laundry Detergent

    Is there any reason why the lyrics "the radio on" are included in so many Gaslight Anthem songs? Others include Mae, The Queen of Lower Chelsea, Angry Johnny and the Radio, and probably more. Has anyone else picked up on this / know why? Great band but I'm just curious.

    Carl Nagle

    from speculation, based on my own personal experiences, it would have something to do with the radio on providing a musical security blanket during the mundane events through the down right bad times. More a guess than anything else, I will not pretend to be able to understand how Brian Fallon does his thing, I'm just grateful he does


    i believe it started around "the 59' sound" (there second album). there's also the fact that in an interview they asked them were they got the inspiration, and there main point of focus i believe was Bruce Springsteen and if you listen to Springsteen's music you kind of forget your troubles, even just for a moment. and that's what people needed on the radio, and it seems that its just a nod to those that made them want to help people forget there problems for a while too.  that's just my two cents


    +krig20 Oh wow, well said! Your two cents seem to be the most logical two cents!

  9. Peace Ondeath

    fukkin terrible SHIT


    why watch it then


    @Bjork Vlogdok You have to watch something first to know if it's terrible. I disagree with the comment btw, but still that was a kind of stupid reply.  


    yeah I suppose it is. I see your logic.

    ross walker

    +peace deathupon So bad you needed to reply?? Small man with small mentality and in all probability a small penis but stay strong bud, life is for living, dont let the negativity you feel drag you down, tomorrows another day and if youre lucky itll be a day when Taylor Swift releases a new song and you can comment happy positive stuff instead, until then its best you stick to her tunes and let the adults enjoytheir music :)

  10. callum martin

    The only bad thing about this song is the usage of 'Comic Sans' for the lyrics!

  11. Enter a Name Here

    anyone got the version of this where he goes on about missing his mother and friends?

    Gábor Halász

    That's in Biloxi Parish demo I think.

  12. Megacaesar

    What's wrong with Comic Sans? I think it looks great.

  13. Alex Lebkücher

    The type of arial or times new roman

  14. Thomas Tehan

    Can someone tell me what Comic Sans is

  15. virgilcain

    i keep thinking of late 90s early 00s hs girls' geocities pages

  16. swiing4thefences

    Is this a girl band? because ive been loving them for about a year.. oh well

  17. Kate Champagne

    Also, stop hating on Comic Sans and check your own handwriting... how about that? :P

  18. Kate Champagne

    i want my life to be this song

    Adrian Palmer

    Kate Champagne hey Kate did you ever find that passion?

  19. Nicky A

    What's the big deal with Comic Sans? Sure, its ugly but it's better than fucking calibri!

  20. Alex Baker

    Comic Sans. The Nickleback of fonts.

  21. Chris

    the lead guitar at the end is magnificent.

  22. john doe

    I probably should stop typing in everyone's status on to Google. Keep finding such good songs that make me like crap.

  23. bill anderson

    never use ComicSans

  24. TheKei42

    You should feel proud. I never, ever, click on that little thumbs-up button. But seeing this was too perfect. You have gained my approval.

  25. faridjabba

    is this on the movie ? where?

  26. budibausto

    By far the best song in the album

  27. Nick Payne

    i think thees guys rock

  28. john doe

    what a pretty song

  29. Davidm8

    Rise Against? they did just go on tour with the gaslight anthem

  30. Davidm8

    i love ur name!

  31. Aaron Morris

    * mist upon

  32. Brian Cameron

    you got trolled hard dude. take a chill pill cut i would just die if you ever took your love away

  33. jteshuwah

    it's spelled "shut up," idiot! Which is exactly what you should do, you mindless, brainwashed, media-poisoned drone! Actually, I think the phrase you're looking for is "F*** off!," which is something else I propose you do! twit!

  34. phil johnson


  35. YetiMachete

    many just saw gaslight with hot water music they are also really good

  36. jteshuwah

    I'm dead serious: are there any more bands like this? Bands that still write real songs that really mean something and that you can't wait to hear again and can't stop thinking about? Bands that can really play and still do legit solos and with singers that sound as good live as in the studio? I'm so sick of this so-called "modern" music!


    Frank Turner, Flogging Molly, The Menzingers, DropKick Murphys and the list goes on and on, you probably cant hear hardly any of them on the radio though

    Johnnie Bee

    For me this band is the best band since The Alarm

  37. JQJ213

    Really? That is my favorite font. It is so legible and clear. To each their own

  38. KPballer999

    wait...u guys aren't really complaining about the font are you?....cmon ppl

  39. KPballer999

    not really dude...i mean dont get wrong i absolutely love TGA but i dont listen to them cuz theyre some kinda superb musicians...cuz theyre not really...theyre just superb at song making and making beautiful music

  40. Becca Jane

    the person who disliked this is really frickin' stupid..

  41. GenerationLost92

    Why make such a big deal about Comic Sans on a YouTube video? Just enjoy the song.

  42. Robert Sanasi

    one of my favourites songs off this amazing album!! guys this is the band I was looking for...up TGA!

  43. TheBazookaBunny

    Hey everyone, shut up, it could be in Webdings.

  44. Helena Wood

    I actually like comic sans...

  45. RagamuffinGunner13

    3:21 Proof that Alex Rosamilia is some kind of maniacal shaman when it comes to guitar.

  46. RagamuffinGunner13

    IKR? Comic Sans killed my parents.

  47. Alex Hammel

    Four... Who taught you to count?

  48. Danielle Hadley

    Comic Sans...really?!

  49. Savannah McKinney

    Gaslight Anthem gives me hope that good music didn't disappear forever in '97

  50. Ashley D.

    I love this song...but I hate Comic Sans...

  51. alexnks98

    awesome breakdown i really liked it when guns n roses did it in don't cry

  52. SprinkleGenie

    we dont drive nowhere, without the radio on!!!!

  53. SprinkleGenie

    This is by far the best song on the album and would easily be on any of the previous 3 albums but still has a new vibe about it.

  54. Donald Gough

    Good job, you need to change Midst to MIST though. :) and you mixed up Sworn and spelt is sowrn.

  55. WeAreAirborne

    Awesome job with the lyrics, thank you so much for posting!

  56. Vlad Finn

    What a great band. I am getting more and more into them, within each song of theirs I listen...
