Parted lips, two eyes too tight
Remember all of the lines
It's so hard to keep a straight face
When I'm talking to myself

Sun set in a solemn way
Headlights on the overpass
If it gets worse you don't have to stay
Any longer than you please

Sit tight, don't make a move
You were always one to let it come to you
Sometimes that doesn't work
Sometimes you gotta stand up and shake that ass

False hopes in a well-lit room
Dead dreams on a photograph
I could let it get to me like it gets to you
But I think I'll leave it in the past

You can't blame me
For giving up so fast
New lies won't stop the crowd
It's just another Thursday night

I'm gonna grow out my hair,
Throw yesterday to the wind
I'm gonna move out west,
Leave this still life

New shoes on an old wood floor
You're counting on the next ten minutes
Gonna stop time, gonna get the girl
But this isn't television, kid

Brown eyes in a white-walled room
Colourblind with a thing for music
You say "love" is your favourite word
But you never find the time to use it

Scraped knees in some new old jeans
You bought 'em at a store downtown
They don't make you any younger
But you like how they feel

On the skin that you hold so close
Insecure, but you think that no one knows
What it's like to want to live
And die at the same time

You can't blame me
For giving up so fast
New lies won't stop the crowd
It's just another Thursday night

I'm gonna grow out my hair,
Throw yesterday to the wind
I'm gonna move out west,
Leave this still life

I know, I know what I want

New words on a plain white page
Old songs on the radio
Found love on Friday night
To think you didn't want to go

Touched lips on another's skin
Small words in a big blue sky
I hated life before I found that song
Now everything's all right

You can't blame me
For giving up so fast
New lies won't stop the crowd
It's just another Thursday night

I'm gonna grow out my hair,
Throw yesterday to the wind
I'm gonna move out west,
Leave this still life
