Lyrics

Make It Last

I didn’t move here,
I’ve been travelling for 7 years.
I never left home, my friends are still the same,
as they were, when I was a boy.

I didn’t move here,
but I did get a dog with you.
And the walls we painted blue,
as they were, when I was a boy.

But time goes by,
way too fast,
if I could, with you,
I’d make it last.

I didn’t move here,
but I can’t remember all the names,
and I can’t remember all the games,
on the streets, of my old neighbourhood.

American Kid

Need a place to live and a brand new rig
Without your dad you’d be under the bridge
Need a fancy dress and a brand new car
You’re full of dough but that can’t buy soul

You’re just a rich, American Kid
Another rich, American Kid

Yeah burn that money,
burn that money,
burn that money down

Got food in the fridge, can’t cook a dish
Your perfect man is anyone who’s rich
I play guitar he’s a super star
He’s full of dough but that can’t buy soul

Life Won't Wait

Work is taking too long to end
I just wanna go to war with everyone in here
If I get to leave early enough
I’m gonna be playing songs and watching bad tv

Who says that I can’t do
Only what I love to do
Who says that I have to
Do the same as you would too

Life Won’t Wait for you

I’ve been wasting most of my time
But I got no time to waste I got to be set free
I wanna wake up on Monday way past
When my alarm goes off and have nowhere to be

There is nothing that you can do
To change my mind and make me like you

People

People keep talking about,
But they don’t know the truth
Better quit talking about,
If you don’t know the truth

People talking,
People don’t know
Better quit talking,
If you don’t know

Do do do do
Blah blah blah blah

Momma Believed

My momma believed,
I coulda been so good
My momma believed,
I coulda been so good

Looking back it’s true
I never thought I woulda done
The things I did with you
My stomach hurts, I’m paranoid
We set fire to a quiet town, oh no

Every drink known to man
Had it then, right from a bowl
And the things I did with you
I need names I should avoid
Let’s move to a distant town alone

My momma believed,
I coulda been so good
My momma believed,
I coulda been so good
So good

But I do right 9 to 5
You got me in my happy hour
And the things I did with you
Secretly I’m very proud
We set fire to a quiet town, oh no

We did it and ran, we did it and ran
Got away, broke the rules
We did it and ran, we did it and ran
You can’t prove and I can’t remember
Let’s move to a distant town alone

Old Man's Car

They say the best things in life
Come when you least expect
You…

Drive to New York City,
in my old man’s car
Drive to go see Dylan,
no matter where we are

One day I’ll make you my wife
It’ll be when you least expect it

You dance to hunt, I’ll dance to chase

Listen, Boy

Listen, boy
You’ve got too many tattoos
When you’re old
What are you gonna do?

I know it’s hard to believe,
I can write, I can read
I know it’s hard to believe
Got money, got home, gotta place to go.

Listen, boy
What is wrong with your head?
When you’re old
You’re gonna be full of regret

Won't Beg You

Who would’ve thought that you would be gone
You used to be my friend
Never thought that you would be gone
But really I think that I am
The best I’ve ever been

I don’t need you anymore
I won’t beg you, won’t beg you
If you walk out of the door
I won’t beg you, won’t beg you
I won’t beg you, won’t beg you

Truth is we were all sick of us
But you made every single call
And I as trapped inside your mistakes
And really I think that I am the best I’ve ever been

Started Stealing

She needs brand new shoes, it’s an emergency
But I’m still afraid of the bills
Most of all my revenue is in her purse
I just wish, she told me about it first

I won’t let this love go,
no no no no
I started stealing
I’ll give up freedom,
Before you girl
I started stealing

Shots down at the Shoe, another bottle or two
When she’s drunk, she plans another cruise
I just can’t keep up, I told her she’s a smooch
Now she’s mad, she’s got an attitude

Nothing can please you, nothing can please you

All That You Deserve

Take with you, all the worries in my mind
Yesterday, I couldn’t pay the man
Growing up is harder than it seems

Take with you, all these things that I can’t buy
To hell with it, I don’t need it to get by
But giving up is harder than it seems

I’ve watched your skin growing older
Seen your steps getting shorter
Still can’t give you all I wanted to
All that you deserve

Hold on, and speak the truth to me
Not what, think I wanna hear
Have I become a stranger to you?

No matter how near of how far
Memories keep us close at heart
And I carry yours inked in my arm
