So the season's changed your face
Toasted skin turned darker shades
So as to better disguise your figure from the streetlights

First floor window opened up
As you tip-toe on the back porch
To meet the new girl on the corner
Make your big plans for the summer

No one's gonna stay inside
We're singing
We are finally here
And we're not going nowhere without our friends
And we can't stop singing
Everybody's making sure we stay up till sunset
But we can't forget

If we ever find our way back
This is all we've got

So you borrow your best friend's Jeep
Cracked her windshield and lost her keys
Crashed the rich kids' parties
Got kicked off of private beaches
We introduced our friends to yours
And we would laugh while we were ignored
And from coast to coast, we'll soon disperse
But let's live tonight like it's our first

We've got fast food, tattoos, late talks, longer walks
Check 'em, hold 'em, lose 'em, fold 'em
Fireworks and alcohol

No one's gonna stay inside
We're singing
We are finally here
And we're not going nowhere without our friends
And we can't stop singing
Everybody's making sure we stay up till sunset
But we can't forget

If we ever find our way back
This is all we've got

I remember sleeping in with the shades drawn
Casting shadows on my bed
Tomorrow feels like it's meant for the flight
Soaring beyond, twisting above
And when I sleep, I still can feel it
I can feel it, I can feel
When I sleep, I still can feel it
I can feel it, I can feel
When I sleep, I still can feel it
I can feel it, I can feel

No one's gonna stay inside
We're singing
(Fuck yeah!)
Finally here
And we're not going nowhere without our friends
And we can't stop singing
Everybody's making sure we stay up till sunset
But we can't forget

If we ever find our way back
If we ever find our way back

First floor window opened up
As you tip-toe on the back porch
To meet the new girl on the corner
Make your big plans for the summer

If we ever find our way back
This is all we've got

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the first part of this line: 'Checkin for the music, for the fireworks and alcohol' is wrong because I cannot understand what's being said. If anyone thinks it's something else, leave a comment.

    General CommentIt is a new song. TAI asked fans to send in pictures to MTV to make into a video and they would write a song to it. Or something along those lines. Go to stew.mtv.com

    General CommentI really love this song. It's a shame they didn't release it on cd becasue it's one of my favourites. The lyrics are pretty much based on the pictures that fans sent in for the video.

    General Commentthe bit your missing is

    'I remember sleeping in with the shades drawn
    Casting shadows on my bed
    Tomorrow feels like it's meant for the fight,
    soaring beyond, twisting above.
    And when I sleep, I still can feel it,
    I can feel it, I can feel.
    When I sleep, I still can feel it,
    I can feel it, I can feel.
    When I sleep, I still can feel it,
    I can feel it, I can feel.'

    hope it helps :)

    General Commentum, the small, fastly spoken stanza doesn't say "We've got fast food, tattoos, late talks, longer walks
    Checkin for the music, for the fireworks and alcohol" it says "We've got fast food, tattoos, late talks, longer walks
    Chek 'em, hold 'em, lose 'em, fold 'em, fireworks and alcohol"
