Don't believe everything happiness says Nothing feels better than hiding these days We bury our fears in the drinks in these tears For the days we believed we could fly Call up your brothers and sisters and friends We'll go back to the place where the night never ends We'll remember the fires The burning car tires Boy how in the hell'd we get here?
[Chorus] So why don't you meet me down behind our old school We'll waste away the weekend with perfect regard for how cavalier we used to be That beautiful insanity the apathy surrounding me Don't close your eyes or we'll fade, away
Over and over and over again We sat down for a minute grew up into men Now we're putting out fires and changing car tires Man how in the hell'd we get here?
This time And we'll never get back what we gave away When we stare at the fire in our eyes
Don't believe everything happiness says Nothing's as real as our old reckless ways When we drink by the fires the burning car tires Bad girls and good liars, the dreams we conspired The days we went crazy, the nights wild and hazy Man how in the hell'd we get here?
