Hey, we gotta stay strong. (Let's go! Let's go!)
Been playing games for too long. (Let's go! Let's go!)
You gotta stay true to you. (Let's go! Let's go!)
Think of all the shitty things you've been through.
I know you will.
How can you say let go? Things were going so well.
Cannot lie to yourself. There's gotta be a better way.
There's gotta be a better way!
When your sanity's at stake (Let's go! Let's go!)
You bend and bend until you break. (Let's go! Let's go!)
Second guess yourself again. (Let's go! Let's go!)
Think of all the shitty things that happened.
Times them by ten.
How can you say let go? Things were going so well.
Cannot lie to yourself. There's gotta be a better way.
There's gotta be a better way.
There's gotta be a better way.
There's gotta be a better way.
Once in a row I let things go.
It got me nowhere. My brother just stared.
Plenty of time to ruin my life, so why start now?
Why start now?
Plenty of time to ruin my life, so why start now?
Why start now?
Plenty of time to ruin my life, so why start now?
So why start now?

    General CommentI love this song, its one of my favs on This Time Next Year. Whenever they play the breakdown live ("once in a row I let things go...") I go nuts.

    General Commenti cant believe only a few people have commented on this song its a fucking classic movielife track,it was the first song i ever heard by them!
    i reckon this song is about just being a kid and feeling like everythings just getting on top of you and your thinking why is this all happening now? and i think maybe its sort of got a positive side cause it says 'theres gotta be a better way'
    love this song too much

    General Commenti think this song is like about how when your still a teenager but your getting older and you think you that everything has to be taken so seriously, then looking at it again, its okay to have fun and relax.
    i love this song.
