Broadway is dark tonight
A little bit weaker than you used to be
Broadway is dark tonight
See the young man sitting
In the old man’s bar
Waiting for his turn to die

The cowboy kills the rock star
And Friday night’s gone too far
The dim light hides the years
On all the faded girls

Forgotten but not gone
You drink it off your mind
You talk about the world
Like it’s someplace that you’ve been

You see you’d love to run home
But you know you ain’t got one
And you’re livin’ in a world
That you’re best forgotten around here

Chorus

You choke down all your anger
Forget your only son
You pray to statues when you sober up for fun
Your anger don’t impress me
The world slapped in your face
It always rains like hell on the losers day parade

You see you’d love to run home
But you know you ain’t got one
’Cause you’re livin’ in a world that you’re best forgotten
And when you’re thinkin’ of a joke
And nobody’s gonna listen
To the one small point
I know they been missin’ round here

Chorus

You see you’d love to run home
But you know you ain’t got one
’Cause you’re livin’ in a world
That you’re best forgotten
And if you’re thinkin’ of a joke
Do you think that they’ll listen
To the one small point
I know they been missin’ round here





Here in this diary, I write you visions of my summer
It was the best I ever had...
There were choruses and sing-alongs, and that unspoken feeling
Of knowing that right now is all that matters.

All the nights we stayed up talking
Listening to 80's songs,
And quoting lines from all those movies that we love
It still brings a smile to my face.

I guess when it comes down to it...

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives
The only thing that matters is just following your heart
And eventually, you'll finally get it right.

Breaking into hotel swimming pools,
And wreaking havoc on our world
Hanging out at truckstops just to pass the time
The blacktop's singing me to sleep.

Lighting fireworks in parking lots
Illuminate the blackest nights
Cherry Cokes under this moonlit summer sky
2015 Riverside, it's time to say goodbye.

Get on the bus, it's time to go!

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives
The only thing that matters is just following your heart,
And eventually, you'll finally get it right.

Get it right...
Get it right...

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives
The only thing that matters is just following your heart,
And eventually, you'll finally get it right.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives
The only thing that matters is just following your heart
And eventually, you'll finally get it right.




you got a fast car
and I want a ticket to anywhere
maybe we make a deal
maybe together we can get somewhere

any place is better
starting from zero got nothing to loose
maybe we'll make something
but me myself I got nothing to prove

you got a fast car
and I got a plan to get us outta here
I been working at the convenience store
managed to save a little bit of money
we wont have to drive too far
just 'cross the border and into the city
you and I can both get jobs
and finally see what it means to be living

you see my old man's got a problem
he lives with the bottle that's the way it is
he says his body's to old for working
his body's young to look like his
my mama went off and left him
she wanted more to life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
so I quit school and that's what I did

you got a fast car
but is it fast enough so we can fly away we gotta make a decision
we leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
the speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
city lights lay out before us
and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder
and I had a feeling that I belonged
and I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

you got a fast car
and we go cruising to entertain ourselves
you still ain't got a job
and I work in a market as a check out girl
I know things will get better
you'll find work and I'll get promoted
we'll move out of the shelter
buy a big house and live in the suburbs
you got a fast car
and I got a job that pays all our bills
you stay out drinking late at the bar
see more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
so take your fast car and keep on driving

you got a fast car
but is it fast enough so you could fly away
you gotta make a decision
you leave tonight or live and die this way





To every broken heart in here
Love was once a part, but now it's disappeared
She told me that it's all a part of the choices that your making
Even when you think you're right
You have to give to take

But there's still tomorrow
Forget the sorrow
And I can be on the last train home
Watch it pass the day
As it fades away
No more time to care
No more time, today

But we sing
If we're going nowhere
Yeah we sing
If it's not enough
And we sing
Sing without a reason
To ever fall in love

I wonder if you're listening
Picking up on the signals
Sent back from within
Sometimes it feels like I don't really know whats going on
Time and time again it seems like everything is wrong in here

But there's still tomorrow
Forget the sorrow
And I can be on the last train home
Watch it pass the day
As it fades away
No more time to care
No more time, today

But we sing
If we're going nowhere
Yeah we sing
If it's not enough
And we sing
Sing without a reason
To ever fall in love

Well we sing if we're going nowhere
Yeah we sing if it's not enough
And we sing
Sing without a reason to ever fall in love

But we sing
If we're going no where
Yeah we sing
If it's not enough
And we sing
Sing with out a reason to never fall in love
To never fall in love again
