It’s dusk as all the shadows fall
The sun is laid to rest
At night the city comes to life
As the light dies in the west
Here we stand as some local band
Sets circles ‘round the clock
Smoke so thick you need a lighthouse
So loud I can’t hear myself talk

Someone whispered in my ear
“It’s not like it was before”
I don’t know what happened here
I guess we just got bored
The good old days
Well I suppose, I’m glad they’re behind us now
The only thing worse than growing up
Is never quite learning how
Late at night we toss and we turn
Lay awake ‘til dawn
We close our eyes as the sun comes up we’re gone

    General Commentahhh first comment....the first verse reminds me of being in a smoke filled pub...lots of cool metaphors....second verse it seems to me like he is thinking that maybe he is getting too old to be out partying and should be growing up...yet it is hard to learn how when your youth and pubs and music is all you know...it is amazing how time can fly by when all the good times keep coming then you wake up one day (as the sun comes) and it is "gone"
