Kick it off
with a record time.
Tie-breaking lullabies.
By then you'll sing it,
Can you sing it?
Hopes galore,
1985, before the starting line.
But now we bring it,
Can you bring it?

I thought I could write about anything,
but you cut me off,
forbidding using your name.
Your letter's full of code,
I haven't figured out.
And what you heard about
isn't adding up the amount you spent.

Uninviting.
You can hold a candle to the city.
I'm watching all your bridges burn.
Bad timing.
Either better pull yourself together,
or fall apart while waiting your turn.

So turn me off when the lights go down.
Sing me a song that'll put me to sleep.
Nightly routine, dream your night on the town.
Hold in all your thoughts.
I don't talk when I'm out.

Kick it off
with a record time.
Tie-breaking lullabies.
By then you'll sing it,
Can you sing it?
Hopes galore,
1985, before the starting line.
But now we bring it,
Can you bring it to life?

Kick it off
with a record time.
Tie-breaking lullabies.
By then you'll sing it,
Can you sing it?
Hopes galore,
1985, before the starting line.
But now we bring it,
Can you bring it?

All I ever wanted was to keep you to myself,
but you're the talk of the town.
Our clever story's so long.
Farewell.
I'll leave you living a lonely night and

You could hold a candle to the city.
I'm watching all your bridges burn.
Bad timing.
Either better pull yourself together,
or fall apart while waiting your turn.

Turns out, we didn't go down.
I'll sing you a song, make you wish it was deep.
Typical girl in a typical town.
Lesson of the day is what I'm really about.

Bada da daa, da dada da da.
Ba da da da da, da da da da da.
Da da da da, da dada da da.
Da da da da da, da da da da da.

I was only under the impression
We were racing for nothing,
but nothing turned out to be
a better life than nothing less than
what I'm leaving behind
and what I'm putting behind me.

I thought I could write about anything.
I thought I could write about anything.
You could only hold me for a number of days,
but we're over now that I'm on my way.

Kick it off
with a record time.
Tie-breaking lullabies.
By then you'll sing it,
Can you sing it?
Hopes galore,
1985, before the starting line.
But now we bring it,
Can you bring it to life? (x2)

To life, to life.

Bada da daa, da dada da da.
Ba da da da da, da da da da da.
Da da da da, da dada da da.
Da da da da da, da da da da da.

    General CommentI like how they put "the starting line" in it. They obviously don't mean the band--but that would've been cool! :)

    General CommentYeah, I was thinking of the band at first, but then I decided they were talking about the starting line in a race instead.

    General Commentthis band sounds neat but every song is about a breaking up with his girlfriend and nothing about God. so much for the christian label
