They say Virginia's for lovers,
filled with green grass and tall hills.
With mountain views to die for,
and summer skies that give you chills.
They say were all alone
and were losing control and we don't even know it.

So we spent late nights looking for an answer,
on the rooftops hoping for so much more.

I spent my summers drinkin' jack and coke on the road,
I never thought that I'd be stuck here with nowhere to go,
but now Virginia doesn't feel like home,
because I lost the only home that I know.

So I'll say Virginia's for liars,
filled with dark skies and cheap thrills,
the seasons move slower, and winters are colder.
They say we'll never grow,
but were all on our own and we're learning to love it.

So we spent late nights looking for an answer,
on the rooftops hoping for so much more.

I spent my summers drinkin' jack and coke on the road,
I never thought that I'd be stuck here with nowhere to go,
but now Virginia doesn't feel like home,
because I lost the only home that I know.


So come on, come on,
cuz' we're losing control and we don't even know it.
So come on, come on,
cuz' were all on our own and were learning to love it.

So come on come on,
now we're learning to love it,
yeah Virginia's for lovers, and were learning to love it.

I spent my summers drinkin' jack and coke on the road,
I never thought that I'd be stuck here with nowhere to go,
but now Virginia doesn't feel like home,
because I lost the only home that I know.

    General Commentbest song to hear live, for realz.

    i'm basically positive this song is writen by matt.
    and i'm catching the drift that its about him missing his home in new york, because i know that he moved from there.

    seriously go see these boys live.
