I remember every night we spent
On weekends, with good friends
We did nothing but it seems like we did so much
Back then

Oh back then, we would kick it laughin', and all relaxin'
And taking things for granted
We did anything for just that little rush
Oh yeah

Just don't forget this
We won't regret this
We've got one chance to get it right
We're alive and we drive to the center of it
Where we know we're all fine and this just can't be it
And in the end we all know we only breathe for so long
So tonight's the night
Oh we all roll along

Oh back to our first cigarette
You know we can't forget all the faces that we met
Eighty One, Twenty Three, means everything to me

Take me back to the parking lots
The sleep we fought
And all the places we got caught
This place will always be a part of me
Yeah, you're all a part of me

Just don't forget this
We won't regret this
We've got one chance to get it right
We're alive and we drive to the center of it
Where we know we're all fine and this just can't be it
And in the end we all know we only breathe for so long
So tonight's the night
Oh we all roll along

I remember every day that I spent dreaming, of leaving
This place behind, I would run away from, thinking
Ending up all the days spent wasted
Chasing the girls we hated
Some things, they, they never change

Take me back to sleepless nights
The stupid fights
And no, it never mattered who was wrong or who was right
And now you're all a part of me

We're alive and we drive to the center of it
Where we know we're all fine and this just can't be it
And in the end we all know we only breathe for so long
So tonight's the night
Oh we all roll along

    General CommentI think this song is about the good times that he once had and now he realizes all the stupid shit he used to do led to good times. He never wants to forget nor regret anything.

    General CommentThe "Are we all all alone?" part is actually "We all roll along."

    I am wondering what the part that says "Eighty One, Twenty Three" means. Or is that only for the writer to know?

    General CommentI think the "Eighty One, Twenty Three" part is something between him and his friends. But that's just my guess.

    General Commentthis is just a random thought that occurred to me
    but i think since this song has a alot to do being young
    and thinks you'll always remember about it...
    well i think eighty-one, twenty-three" part could possibly reference to like high school jersey numbers or something like that because I know that before John joined the band that he was a lot different than he is now and used to play baseball and what not so maybe that why those numbers mean everything to him...
    but i dont know just some random suggestions that I was throwing out there...im probably way off though

    General Commenti think 'Eighty One, Twenty Three' is a garage parking lot that john and friends used to hang out at because fans asked him what it meant.
