Biography

The Night Life is a young and aspiring Pop Rock band hailing from Edison, New Jersey. Growing up together as high school friends; Dave Polashock, Patrick Rogers, Jeff Grabowski, Kyle Sawicki, and Zack Keifer found a common bond in music. Drawing inspiration from their tumultuous love lives, failed relationships, and social commentary, they write songs to create an emotional connect between the artist and the listener.

"We're all about having fun and bringing the focus back on the music and a sense of community."

Lyrics

Jumpstart My Heart

Written By: The Night Life

Don’t tell me it’s over

After all we’ve never been through

It’s a long walk home and I don’t plan to make you take it all alone.

There’s a car parked out your front door

To take us where we want to;

It’s our chance, come let’s make it happen.

It’s up to you.

Don’t close your eyes

Cause you might miss the most important second of your life.

( Can't believe we made it this far.)

We got one more night to make this right

Before we dig ourselves to deep into

The graves we made to sleep in so…

Well, it’s not like we planned this

But it’s just too good to miss

This one so

You can watch the sunset alone.

Something tells me

I’m in over my head and barely breathing

I need these words in my lungs cause it’s

Keeping me alive,

One more thing to keep locked up inside of me.

(Will you please, jump-start my heart?)

Don’t close your eyes

Cause you might miss the most important second of your life.

(Can't believe we made it this far.)

We got one more night to make this right

Before we dig ourselves to deep into

The graves we made to sleep in so…

Well, it’s not like we planned this

But it’s just too good to miss

This one so

You can watch the sunset alone.

Something Borrowed

Written By: The Night Life

She said this winter's been the coldest one,

She's seen the past two years.

('Cause you're not around)

So many words held back tonight,

Baby it's all right, you can read me like the book,

That keeps you on the ground.

And I will fall for you every time I take a step.

(Trace back your footstep and they will lead back to me.)

(Trace back your footstep and they will lead you back.)

You know how to keep me,

Wishing on the stars.

Hoping where you are right now

Is where you want to be,

But I can see the roads covered in ice.

So, turn around baby and just crash here tonight,

'Cause I can't go on alone.

And I am speechless,

I'm holding back my words to get this right,

I hope you keep me in your mind,

'Cause I can't get you out of mine. 

And I will fall for you every time I take a step.
(Trace back your footstep and they will lead back to me.)
(Trace back your footstep and they will lead you back.)

You know how to keep me,
Wishing on the stars.
Hoping where you are right now
Is where you want to be,
But I can see the roads covered in ice.
So, turn around baby and just crash here tonight,
'Cause I can't go on alone.

And I'll be the one to get this out in the open.

You'll probably be the first to know in all my life,

I'm not alright.

So keep me wide awake tonight 

And don't turn out the lights

'Cause I don't want to miss one second more.

You know how to keep me,
Wishing on the stars.
Hoping where you are right now
Is where you want to be,
But I can see the roads covered in ice.
So, turn around baby and just crash here tonight,
'Cause I can't go on alone.

No Guts...No Glory...

Written By: The Night Life

Pour our guts out on the floor
And we're screaming we'll leave them wanting more.
Our scars remind us that our hearts
Will pave the way in gold.

So give me something to hold on to.
I swear I'll never let you go
'Cause what it all comes down to
Talk is cheap, you and me
We will never see eye to eye
That's what you're always saying.
You left me hanging on...so I'll

Cut the rope and sever the ties
this our time, it's our time to shine.

Pour our guts out on the floor
And we're screaming we'll leave them wanting more.
Our scars remind us that our hearts
Will pave the way in gold.

I'm calling you out tonight
On all of your lies.
Tell me what you're thinking
'Cause my honesty and integrity
Won't get the best of me. 
You left me hanging on...so I'll

Cut the rope and sever the ties
this our time, it's our time to shine.

Pour our guts out on the floor
And we're screaming we'll leave them wanting more.
Our scars remind us that our hearts
Will pave the way in gold.

Do you need some time to think about the mess
You left for me? 
And we're screaming.

Pour our guts out on the floor
And we're screaming we'll leave them wanting more.
Our scars remind us that our hearts
Will pave the way in gold.

Holiday

Written By: The Night Life


This may sting a little bit,
But with skin so thick I don't think you'll feel it.
Somebody let the good news out too soon
and now you know, I'm honestly
Using every word against you.
Anxious to see you holding back your tongue
from the army at your lungs.

I'll light a match and I'll throw it your way
'Cause our friendship will fade away.
I'll light a match and I'll throw it your way
For our friendship.

We hope and we pray for a Holiday;
Where we can live like kings.
(We'll sleep forever)
We'll show them what we're made of
Skin and bones at the mausoleum;
Where it's hard to be the one
That makes the tears fall easy.
Gonna miss this town,
But it's the best that I can do 
Without breaking down.

Wear me like a choker,
I'll hang on to you.
Keep me like a secret,
so close to you, but so far from home.

Well, I can't get you out of my skin
My bone they ache.

We hope and we pray for a Holiday;
Where we can live like kings.
(We'll sleep forever)
We'll show them what we're made of
Skin and bones at the mausoleum;
Where it's hard to be the one
That makes the tears fall easy.
Gonna miss this town,
But it's the best that I can do 
Without breaking down.

I'll burn you to the ground.
