You grab the keys
I’ll grab the fake ID’s
Half a bottle on the floorboard
Waitin for you and me
A hundred miles an hour
The money flyin out of the bag
A hundred miles away
And we’re never lookin back

We were just 18 and couldn’t sit still
We were looking for adventure
Lookin for the kill
But all we found was this town
All we found was Jacksonville
Just bad booze and bad blood
And things we’d never known
Found each other
Never found our way home
All we found was this town
All we found was Jacksonville
Jacksonville!

Packed our lives into a suitcase
Heading for the stars
We’d have made it big
We’d have changed the world
But we didn’t get too far
The world at our fingertips
Everything in the palm of our hands
We’d have made it big
We’d have changed the world
But we just had bigger plans

We were just 18 and couldn’t sit still
We were looking for adventure
Lookin for the kill
But all we found was this town
All we found was Jacksonville
Just bad booze and bad blood
And things we’d never known
Found each other
Never found our way home
All we found was this town
All we found was Jacksonville
Jacksonville!
