lyrics

Now it feels like forever ago
Before reality slowed us down and showed us where to draw the line.
Space bags and stolen bottles
When GG was our role model, and I can't believe I made it out alive.

I found the back of a matchbook in the back of my car
Where we all wrote our names on the back of the card
Days like these, I lose track of my time
And they'll never leave my mind.

From Heritage Square to Wheeler Park
And all those tunnels in the dark, drinking Night Train and writing on the walls
Drinking forties in the bathroom stalls, ignoring all of our mom's calls,
Like "Kids" without the AIDS and punk rock shows instead of raves,
I guess it's really not the same now looking back.

We did our best
Smoke it down to the filter
I'll never ever forget;
We'll never ever forget

I remember when we were in the back of my car
Singing "we're the coolest kids and we'll take what we can get"
Days like these I know who I am
And they'll never leave my mind.
