My whole life is a blur
A daydream with no sky to lean on
I use my heat when it wants to work
But these days I get so lost
Don’t mind me, it’s just a phase
Nothing a good drive alone can’t fix
Put on some Jimmy Eat World and just drive for days
Get sad, get lonely, get over it
Yeah

All good things don’t have to fade
A thousand reasons all turned into better ways
To leave this still-life far behind
Said we ought to smile just a little more often

Oh well, I just can’t tell
How many times it’ll take me to get it right
Oh no, I’m giving up the future
These nights are just not something I’m used to
Hey, you’re not alone

It’s so amazing being young
Sure I’m scared, but I’m not the only one
My generation, we’re all losers
But we sure as hell won’t ever give up
My whole life’s been in black and white
The colors fade as the seasons go
The American dream will have to wait
Next year will be better, I hope

Oh well, I just can’t tell
How many times it’ll take me to get it right
Oh no, I’m giving up the future
These nights are just not something I’m used to
Hey, you’re not alone
You’re not alone

Something tells me I’m not done
Call me what you will, but don’t blame me when I run
I’m just another scar for you to miss
It’s this town, I swear it never liked me

When times were good, man, they were good
We were invincible
Fighting the good fight, setting souls on fire
We were never cool, but we were young, yeah we were free
Baby, even fools get lucky, one day you’ll see

One, two, one-two-three-four
Oh well, I just can’t tell
How many times it’ll take me to get it right
Oh no, I’m giving up the future
These nights are just not something I’m used to
Hey, you’re not alone
