I've got a picture of you and me
And it's taped to the mirror so you can see all right
I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it
Stay all night
There's one last chance to hold each other tight

We're gonna say goodbye
We're gonna say goodnight
I wish there was more time

Because we're giving it up
But we'll be just fine
We're gonna go, go, go to the next stateline
And we're living it up
Leave it all behind
And we'll say goodnight to a closing skyline

I'm all right
Absolutely sure I'll get through all of this
Up all night
There's one last shot to get the ending right

We're gonna say goodbye
We're gonna say goodnight
I wish there was more time

Because we're giving it up
But we'll be just fine
We're gonna go, go, go to the next stateline
And we're living it up
Leave it all behind
And we'll say goodnight to a closing skyline

With all the addicts and indies around this town
And the geeks and the mods
And the Tate Street clowns, yeah
We gotta get out somehow
Yeah, well, we gotta get somehow

From all the dive-bars and rockstars who plague this place
And the thugs and the bums that get in your face
And all the bullshit and drama that can't be erased, yeah
We gotta get out somehow

Because we're giving it up
But we'll be just fine
We're gonna go, go, go to the next stateline
And we're living it up
Leave it all behind
And we'll say goodnight to a closing skyline (x2)

    General CommentI've got a picture of you and me and it's taped to the mirror so you can-
    See all right
    I'm not sure exactly how i feel about it
    Stay all night
    There's one last chance to hold each other tight

    We're gonna say goodbye
    We're gonna say goodnight
    I wish there was more time

    Because we're giving it up
    But we'll be just fine
    We're gonna go go go to the next state-line
    And we're living it up
    Leave it all behind
    And we'll say "goodnight" to a closing skyline

    I'm alright
    -absolutely sure I'll get through all of this
    Up all night
    There's one last shot to get the ending right

    We're gonna say goodbye
    We're gonna say goodnight
    I wish there was more time

    Because we're giving it up
    But we'll be just fine
    We're gonna go go go to the next state-line
    And we're living it up
    Leave it all behind
    And we'll say "goodnight" to a closing skyline

    With all the addicts and indies around this town
    and the geeks and the mods and the tate street clowns, yeah
    We gotta get out somehow
    Yeah we gotta get somehow

    with all the dive-bars and rockstars who plague this place
    And the thugs and the bums that get in your face
    And all the bullshit and drama that can't be erased, yeah
    We gotta get out somehow

    Because we're giving it up
    But we'll be just fine
    We're gonna go go go to the next state-line
    And we're living it up
    Leave it all behind
    And we'll say "goodnight" to a closing skyline
    Because we're giving it up
    But we'll be just fine
    We're gonna go go go to the next state-line
    And we're living it up
    Leave it all behind
    And we'll say "goodnight" to a closing skyline
