Just talked to this girl who used to live on my street
after all these years you're here and you remember me.
She said her old boyfriend
packed up and headed back east
but she always knew someday he would go.

She just got a new job but doubts it will last
so lets take a drink and never think
here's to the past.
She says it's so funny how life burns out so fast
it's just another wasted day

A boring life in a boring town
with the same old crowd
and I used to say that I'd never stay
but I'm rotting here today.
With that same old crowd that's always been around
and I always thought I'd be the first to go

That same old crowd that drags me down
another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
a boring life in a boring town.

I just talked to this girl, used to live on my street.
After all these years you're here and its still just you and me?
Some times I can't believe after all these years...
I just think I'll never leave here.
She said its so funny how life runs out so fast.
Lets take another drink and heres to the past.

That same old crowd that drags me down
another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
a boring life in a boring town.

And remember when they'd look through you
and then look past me
we were the ones they said would always leave
when you go think of me.
Think of me.

A boring life in a boring town
with the same old crowd
and I used to say that I'd never stay,
but I'm rotting here today.
With that same old crowd that's always been around
and I always thought that...
Yeah I always thought that...
And I always thought I'd be, the first to go.

A boring life, a boring town.
A boring life, a boring town.
A boring life, a boring town.

    My OpinionThis song definitely describes my life right now. I swear sometimes I feel like I have the same conversations with friends. We always tell the same stories, and end up doing the same things. I think we all need a change of pace, something different to do each weekend.

    General Commentit's about a guy who grew up thinking that he was never gonna stay in his fuck-hole of a town, but is still sitting there, realising that all the people he knew as a child are still there too

    General CommentI think everyone can agree with this. I can't think of anyone that says as a kid that they want to end up living in their town, but a lot of people just don't have the means to leave.

    General Commentyou gotta love LTJ cos it feels like every song was written for your life, everyone can relate to the feelings and the situations they sing about. everyone must have felt a million times that where they live is just shit, and you have to get away, and then a year later you're still in exactly the same place. but i guess the fact we all feel like that goes to show that life sucks all over
