Gone, we blew out time away
Gone away from our endless childhood nights
But for now, we’re running out of time

Kid rolls up her sleeves, says I don’t understand
Why you busting
She’s hot, but she’s cold
She’s got tears on her nose
She’s packing up her clothes
She’s moving down the road,
Saying fair well to all her friends
Cause everything thing good must have an end
She said, “Laugh while you can, you’re never gonna see them again”
She holds their hand, as tight as you can
Say to you, you never look down, you’ll never gonna land

A Mother’s love, and a father’s hand
Can always pull you out of, quicksand
But you get up, and just dust yourself off
But as you are walking away all they can do, is cry
And hope maybe, something catches your eye

So forget our drugs and leave our rock and roll aside
It ain’t helping us get through it
It’s love that gets us through it
It’s time that makes us due
We’re all leaving soon, who needs a friend who needs a tune
But for now, I am gonna miss you

Lets all lock arms, and shout to the sun
“Hey look God, what we have done”
Lets finally come together
Just in time, to come undone
Even if victory isn’t written in our stars and board,
We’ve still won

And touch the wall of our childhood, and then we’re gonna run
Touch the wall of our childhood, and then we’re gonna run

So here we are 18, wondering where the days have gone
Looking down a long highway
Nothing ahead but the red Sun
So exchange your last looks,
Walk on a field for lost time
Forever isn’t a measurement of time
Forever isn’t a measurement of time
Simply mean memories, for our, kind

Ohhh, for our kind
