In the middle of nowhere,
We found ourselves in a place,
And forgot about this place.

The cool breeze felt so nice,
The water woke up glass-like,
We couldn’t find enough daylight.

I want to go back,
Back then our bones wouldn’t break,
Always fighting too stay awake.

Blistered fingertips from holding on too tight,
But getting just enough of a flight,
To go back for another ride.

A million goosebumps from not knowing what’s in the night,
The treetops would provide,
Just enough moonlight.

I want to go back,
Back then our bones wouldn’t break,
Always fighting too stay awake.

Back then our bones wouldn’t break,
We didn’t give a fuck!
Back then our bones wouldn’t break,
Always fighting to stay awake.

We broke into the high school,
Booked just before the cops came.
We weren’t trying to steal anything,
Just looking for something to skate.
I wouldn’t change anything,
Just want to do it again.

    General CommentI believe this song is just an anthem of youthfulness. It's remincising about being young. "Back then our bones wouldn't break, we didn't give a fuck" and "fighting to stay awake" are things everyone in their youth can relate to. People have the idea that when they are young they are invincible and nothing can hurt them. This is just the writer's way of symbolizing his youth and putting it in song.

    General CommentPlease. Over 5,000 views yet no comments! What are the odds of that. ZERO. Someone is using some techno system on this site and manipulating the results. If you are gonna do that, at least pick a GOOD song! As for this little dandy, I have no clue what it means, but then again it's called A Few Screws Loose and the artist chose to name itself A Great Big Pile of Leaves:) I say it's a great big pile of poo. How's that for the opening comment! (Do NOT mark it down!)
