Leave it by the roadside
I can't carry this all tonight
This is quite concerning
But there's other things on my mind
Kids don't sell their hopes so fast  

Fickle are the weekdays
Cause they seem flatter than these tyres
Summer's on the outro
Mosquito coils and pine tree fires


Kids don't sell their hopes so fast
Cause they're worth more than both of us
And even if you don't get so far
At least we've learned to drive that car


Oh No, Saw her wash away and let it go.
Because I said so,
Leave it by the roadside
I can't carry this all tonight
This is quite concerning
But there's other things on my mind

Kids don't sell their hopes so fast
Cause they're worth more than both of us
And even if you don't get so far
At least we've learned to drive that car..

    General CommentLosing the innocence of youth. Perhaps it's the first real love that slips through his fingers... but he feels he pushed her away (because I said so)... ?

    General Commentlove this song, i couldn't find it for download anywhere so i set up itunes just so i could buy it.

    i think this song is about kids in a small country town and perhaps how some of them don't see life outside where they live. and then saying well if thats all there is to their life then they're happy to learn to drive a car...or something like even if you don't get all you wanted out of life at least you got this or that which was good too.

    i have lived in and visted isolated small country towns as a child and somehow the days always seemed very long and boring. might not be what he's saying but kinda get that feeling.
