"Haight Street" as written by and Nathan R Young Christian E Mcalhaney....
Lets you and me make our way just beyond haight st
Lets leave this life behind forgetting all they say
The time we have this time we?re borrowed
Stay out all night
Forget tomorrow

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

The review mirror shows the towns we?re abandoning
Lets leave this life behind forgetting all they say
The time we have this time we?re borrowed
Stay out all night
Forget tomorrow

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

(We'll care) if there's trouble tonight
(We'll care) cause the kids are alright
Tonight we'll take this town
Cause we're old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

(We'll care) if there's trouble tonight
(We'll care) cause the kids are alright
Tonight we'll take this town
Cause we're old enough to know
But too young to care

    General Commenti think this song is a real feel-good song. it has a catchy tune that stands out while listening to the album for the first time. it's so far one of my favs on the new album, but i guess i have to listen myself into some of the others. was the same with cities.

    General CommentSeriously this song is pure awesomeness. the chorus part is plain epic.
    i have "Old enough to know, but too young to care" as my myspace motto and as my msn messenger comment. seriously everyday someone tells me that the phrase is pure genius and wants to know where i got it from. most of the people don't know Anberlin and so i introduce them to quality music. of course it's my pleasure ;)

    General Comment7sFavoriteSon, Haight Street along with Ashbury street are in San Francisco and they're famous for their role in the counterculture/hippie movement. It's related to the song in that the song is about going out, being carefree and having a goodtime.

    General CommentThis is one song from New Surrender that could have been written a little bit more. It's fun, but a bit repetitive, as well as being the shortest track on the cd. Otherwise, its very similar to Time and Confusion from Never Take.....

    General CommentI love this song. Its about getting away from everything and just spending time with that special person. "Making a night of it."
    They won't worry about anything else while theyre out because everything is going to be alright, there is nothing to be worried about.

    General CommentI love love love this song. It's exactly how I feel about my weekends -- "Let's just do crazy shit and act like teenagers and have a damn good time and not give a damn."

    General CommentIt seems like a lot of people think this song is the worst track on the album. Yeah, it does sound pretty different, but I still like it. I don't mind happy/upbeat songs.

    General Commentthis song is so amazing. probably my second fav on the album. i like the teenager interpretation, though i think its about a significant other. its like he wants to go out with her and do anything and everything and make it the most memorable thing he can and not care what his parents or anyone else for that matter thinks.
