"Rooftops" as written by and Lovato....
Starin' at the broke street light,
Some of those lonely nights,
I didn't know if we would make it through.

Stayin' up 'til 5 AM,
Watchin' the sun come up again,
I'd do it all again if i could.

So if I call will you be there?
I miss the nights we used to share

Up on the rooftop,
Listening to punk rock,
Nobody believed that,
This could be our one shot,
That was all we had
The nights that we wasted,
Got us through the days that,
Seemed never ending,
Always in a haze but,
We just didn't care
No, we just didn't care

The only place that we could go,
Starin' at a world we didn't know,
Wondering if this was all we had.

40 ounce, intoxicated dreams,
All our faded memories,
That's what made us who we are today.

So if I call will you be there?
(If I call will you be there?)
I miss the nights we used to share

Up on the rooftop,
Listening to punk rock,
Nobody believed that,
This could be our one shot,
That was all we had
The nights that we wasted,
Got us through the days that,
Seemed never ending,
Always in a haze but,
We just didn't care
No, we just didn't care

All these nights,
Left alone,
Is what made us

All these nights,
Left alone,
Is what made us
What made us

Up on the rooftop,
Listening to punk rock,
Nobody believed that,
This could be our one shot,
That was all we had

Up on the rooftop,
Listening to punk rock,
Nobody believed that,
This could be our one shot,
That was all we had
The nights that we wasted,
Got us through the days that,
Seemed never ending,
Always in a haze but,
We just didn't care
No, we just didn't care

    General Commenti love the meaning behind the lyrical content (of all their songs!!). i can relate to the feeling that its your only shot and having everybody telling you not to do it but you know you hafta.

    General CommentThis was the song that got me into Mest when I heard it on the 2003 Warped Tour comp. It's still my favorite Mest song (second only to "Greyhound Bus.") Makes most of the other songs on their latest album look really bad in comparison. (Return To Self-Loathing, I'm looking in your direction...)
