Ask your mother, if you can go out tonight
Cause the boys got a bottle on the roof
From your rear view mirror, it’s a twilight drive
This must be life’s forgotten proof
They’ll sell you summer
We got this year and to my friends and I it will come true
A teenage hunger and a suburban child
Got a kiss from a girl then away I flew
Into the blue
Where no one knows my name
I found a love to shame
Where I never was the one
Forgive me father, for telling you lies
But you know I was lost in lust
I’ll meet my brother at the bowling alley
And there’s a girl with eyes like dangling diamonds reflecting the sun
Walk the shoreline
It was my time, on each park bench my time did come
But in the bedroom
We tried lord we tried but to learn love was not enough
Let it rust
Where no on knows my name I found a love to shame
Where I never was the one
