All those wasted hours we used to know
Spent the summer staring out the window
The wind it takes you where it wants to go

At first they built the road then they built the town
La la la la la la la la-aa
That?s why we?re still drivin? round and round
It always seems, the kids and buses longin? to be free

Wasted hours before we knew
Where to go and what to do
Wasted hours that you make new
Turn into a life that we can live

Some cities make you loose your head
La la la la la la la la-aa
Then there?s suburbs stretched out thin and dead
What was that line that you said

Wishin? you were anywhere but here
La la la la la la la la-aa
You watch the life your livin? disappear
And now I see we?re still kids and buses longin? to be free

Wasted hours before we knew
Where to go and what to do
Wasted hours that you make new
Turn into a life that we can live
