Lyrics

When I was younger you said to me,
Love songs are for lovers,
And not for you;
So go and write the world the blues
And as I sit down with a pen in my hand,
A heartless kid became a broken man,
And I knew,
I gotta get outta here too
The city lights all call me,
And I am not afraid;
The streets are paved with heroes,
And they’re calling out my name
So baby let me run away,
I’ll make my own destiny;
Cause this town is killing me,
Hopelessly,
And silently tonight;
And baby you can tell the strange,
I’m the boy who got away,
Cause this town will murder us;
Forget your boyfriend, fuck suburbia
When I was younger you said to me,
A white picket fence and a well-groomed man
Is right,
Now go and find yourself a wife
And in all of the cities in all of the world,
With all of the money and all of the girls
In the night;
Cannot get you off my mind
The highway lights are broken,
Like we’re one step closer to God;
I live for words I’ve spoken,
And I hate them just because
So baby let me run away,
I’ll make my own destiny;
Cause this town is killing me,
Hopelessly,
And silently tonight;
And baby you can tell the strange,
I’m the boy who got away,
Cause this town will murder us;
Forget your boyfriend, fuck suburbia
So baby let me run away,
I’ll make my own destiny;
Cause this town is killing me,
Hopelessly,
And silently tonight;
And baby you can tell the strange,
I’m the boy who got away,
Cause this town will murder us;
Forget your boyfriend, fuck suburbia
Fuck suburbia
Fuck suburbia
