You bring the gasoline, I'll bring the matches
We'll drive all night til one of us crashes
We've got a ways to go
And when the feeling dies and we lay down
They'll say we faded but we fucked up this town
We've got a ways to go

We've seen better days

The world is on fire when I'm with you
First time in my life something to lose
When you're alone sing this song, sing this song
When everyone changed so did you
I've been in back taking in your moves
Start your own fire save this song, save this song

Under our first marquee we set our sites
On New York minutes and Hollywood nights
We had a ways to go
And when the shows sold out but notes fell flat
Won't see me broken if the crowd sings it back
I've got a ways to go

We've seen better days, you can just call us last years phase

I know I can't run from this anymore
I really need to talk about it
And justify my wasted life
I really can't run from this anymore
I think I'm gonna scream about about it
And justify my wasted life

I'm not ready, hands deep in my pockets
Watching my anthems burn
And I wanna know, when did this fall apart?

    General CommentI first heard this on Q101's (Chicago) Crash Test Radio, and loved it. It seems like it's about a failed relationship.

    Do you know where I can download/buy this song?
