Once there was a day
We were together all the way
An endless path unbroken
But now there is a time
A torture less sublime
Our souls are locked and frozen

Once we were years ahead but now those thoughts are dead
Let me go
All hopeless fantasies are making fools of me
Let me go
I walk alone and yet I never say goodbye
Let me go
A change of heart a change of mind and heaven fell that night
Let me go

I tried but could not bring
The best of everything
Too breathless then to wonder
I died a thousand times
Found guilty of no crime
Now everything is thunder

Daytime all I want is
Nighttime I don't need the
Daytime all I want is
Nighttime I don't need the

The best years of our lives
The hope of it survives
The facts of life unspoken
The only game in town
I'll turn the last card down
And now the bank is broken

Found guilty of no crime
They were the best years of our lives
I'll turn the last card down

    General Commentgrrr no ones know lyrics to ne of these songs....!

    Down in the streets outside of Washington DC
    I wasted all my time and you were there with me
    Back then it meant so much to have you by my side
    I always had your back and you always had mine

    Sayin let me go, have some fun
    Well my decision sucks to you, but I'm so young

    We'd hang out late and fight, just trying to have fun
    We were such punk ass kids but we knew everyone
    And who could see through such blazed up bloodshot eyes
    There was a plan for us one day we'd realize


    na na na na na na na x 11

    CHORUS x 2

    there that should be right...
