"Life Of The Party" as written by and Carter/cash....
I picked up an old acoustic,
Thought my hands knew how to use it.
But these days aren’t like the old ones
Or the songs we sang
On the long way home

I sat back down beside that girl who was texting
And laughed out loud over obsessions with next things
And how every good song has the words
Tonight, take back, and burn
By your side, miss the way, and I will never learn
So if there’s nothing new to say then let’s just say it all again tonight

We had the best times of our lives
Let’s do it all again,
Take back my place there by your side
And never let it end
The hours passed like days, the nights were our escape
We held onto our friends and made a couple million mistakes
We were so reckless and young
Go get your cd case let’s drive around this town and sing Dashboard at the top of our lungs

I still remember my parents divorcing
It took 10 long years of the back and forth thing
Finally I saw it in my mother’s eyes
A road you can choose that you can’t come back from
And the words you can say to add some traction
But it’s what you didn’t say that keeps you awake
We tell ourselves it’s late and save it all for another day
We had the best times of our lives
Let’s do it all again,
Take back my place there by your side
And never let it end
The hours passed like days, the nights were our escape
We held onto our friends and made a couple million mistakes
We were so reckless and young
Go get your CD case let’s drive around this town and sing Dashboard at the top of our lungs

I want to go back, I want to go back tonight


Could it be that we’re one and the same
(I want to be real)
The world never showed but it gave us a name
(To feel brand new)
That hole in your heart is the same shape as mine
(To Talk like friends)
The piece has gone missing that filled up our lives
(And laugh with you)

I’ll stand here and I’ll take the worst
But the song was my own and I sang every verse
I’m giving myself up there’s no where to run
If just for one night, forget all our pride and have fun

I want to go back to the life of the party
