I'm gonna give it away to you,
I thought I'd hold out for something more but I cant wait,
Don't hold your breath cuz I'll be gone in the morning,
These city lights have become more than I can take,
And I won't break

So let's set the record straight,
Everyday is a storm that's waiting
to strike,
And every night is a dream but not real,
Life is not what it may seem,
So get off your ass and pull your face
on outta the dirt,
A few looks back and you'll see,
That this is worth the heartache and the tears,
So...

And the record plays on and on
This is our ticket somewhere,
Is this gonna get me somewhere far away from home?
And the record plays on and on
This is our ticket somewhere,
Is this gonna get me somewhere far away from home?

Go to college and learn something nobody needs,
It's 3 AM, have you found a place to
slip away your make up and the lies that you try?
Open your legs if you think your futures inside,
I see you blushing,
Do you have something to hide those bruises on your neck this time?

And the record plays on and on
This is our ticket somewhere,
Is this gonna get me somewhere far away from home?
And the record plays on and on
This is our ticket somewhere,
Is this gonna get me somewhere far away from home, my home?
Alone...

Say hello, to the best, few years of your lifetime spent, and persuit of love,
We are crashing everything on this town tonight,
I'm gonna give it away to you,
I thought I'd hold for something more but I can't wait

    General CommentPretty easy... he's singing to this girl.

    Ok.. but more in depth. He's gonna become a singing, she's gonna go to college. He's decided that they're gonna have sex before she leaves. He questions whether or not he should pursue a music career. I mean... will it get him somewhere far away from home?

    Its actually possible that just the lines "I'm gonna give it away to you, I thought I'd hold for something more but i can't wait" is actually being said from the girl, but i'm not sure.

    General Commenti think this song is about the pressures of one-night-stand sex. parts of this song suggest he doesn't want to do it, but other parts are telling him to. he probably just wants to forget everything else and do it, but something's telling him not to. yet in the end, he gives up and gives in.
