SINGLE PREMIERE: Grouplove – “Ways To Go” (+ Lyrics)

Ready, set, "Go".

Ready, set, “Go”.

Los Angeles quintet Grouplove are back with their first single from their forthcoming album Spreading Rumours, an electronic jam called “Ways To Go”. I recently profiled their new stuff in a post two weeks ago. The single is on iTunes tomorrow, while the album is out on September 17. While the song is fairly different from the rock sound on their last album, it still grooves despite some weak verses. It’s all about that chorus, post-chorus, and the drop about 2/3 into the song. If you’ve been into the 80’s influence that’s been sweeping across Alternative music in general on and off the charts, then you’ll love this song. If you don’t, then I would wait for the rest of the album to come out. Enjoy!

Watch the the premiere of “Ways To Go” from Grouplove.

“WAYS TO GO”

[Verse 1]
I didn’t ask for this
You give me heart attack
I didn’t want to care
And then I saw you there
Been working like a dog
I turned all my dreams off
I didn’t know my name (x2)

[Chorus]
(I got a little bit longer) I got a ways to go (x2)
(Oh I got a little bit longer) I got a ways to go-oh-oh
Whoa oh oh (I got a ways to go)

[Post-Chorus]
Even when I can’t see my rearview
Even if I call just to hear you
Even when I sleep all day (x2)
Even when I work it like I’m times two
Living in the back of the bunk just like we do
Even when I dream all day

[Verse 2]
Don’t wanna sleep tonight
You’ve got me feeling right
I didn’t know my name (x2)

[Chorus]
(I got a little bit longer) I got a ways to go (x2)
(Oh I got a little bit longer) I got a ways to go-oh-oh
Whoa oh oh (I got a ways to go)

[Post-Chorus]
Even when I can’t see my rearview
Even if I call just to hear you
Even when I sleep all day (x2)
Even when I work it like I’m times two
Living in the back of the bunk just like we do
Even when I dream all day (x2)

(instrumental break)

Whoa-oh whoa-oh whoa (x3)
Whoa

[Chorus – half]
(Oh I got a little bit longer) I got a ways to go-oh-oh
Whoa oh oh

[Post-Chorus – variation]
Even if I smoke in the back room
Even if I go right to meet you
Even when I sleep all day (x2)
Even when I work it like I’m times two
Waiting for the day just to end so I see you
Even when I dream all day (x2)

[End]
D-d-d-day, etc.
(Whoa-oh Whoa-oh oh) (x3)
Oh
Day

    Living in the back of the room just like we do’
