LYRICS

for about four years i've hated this town
just so much i just wanna get out
since graduation was long ago 
please somebody get me out of this hole
cause i don't want to get stuck in here
when i am 34 just talking about high school years
no i don't want to be there
cause i feel so stuck right here
back and fourth, side to side
oh my dear
my foot to the floor i will drive to the place where i will kick it with friends through the night
a place to talk about now and the past what the future holds
hanging out with not much to do
just aimless with each other, its what we do
CHORUS
cause this aint' where its at 
my friends will second that
and i've got to admit... sometimes it's pretty sad
but its' like we're our own brat pack
we're always kickin' back 
nobody can take that
that is that
it's like it's all we have
whoaaa whooaaa oh yeah 
i said oh oh get on the floor
dance til you've got no more 
i know it's there somewhere 
don't worry i'll be there
to rock the party all night
to dance until it's light
our fists in the air fighting the good fight
and we were singing along to peter gabriel's sledgehammer song
and now it's clear that tonight we belong in this place
so i stand back and reflect in this town that i hate
at least for just a second
i think i might stay
REPEAT CHORUS
so i run away with the hopes that i have
that still i fall asleep in the arms of my past
and when i wake so helpless and dreaming of that
just like i do oh... again
every day
so maybe later today i'll know
what i will do with my life as i know it
maybe from now on i'll drive back to that place where i belong and
hope to god it hasn't changed
REPEAT CHORUS x2
