Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation. "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."

I feel tears welling up cold and deep inside
Like my heart's got a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake
You might think I'm taking it hard
Since she broke me off with a call
But don't wager that I'll hide the sorrow
I may break right down and bawl

Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back, trying not to fall
My heart's out of the running
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
And the winner loses all

One day I ventured in love never once forgetting
What the final result would be
Now I live in fear of waking up each morning
And finding that you're gone from me
There's an aching pain in my heart for the name
Of the one that I hated to face
Someone else came out to win her
And I came out in second place
