Let's go

It's not easy making a name for yourself
Where do you draw the line?
I never thought I'd be in this far
Let's have some fun and never change that for anyone
Try not to miss me when I'm gone

Woooh, wooooh

I sold my soul to the open road
I'll live my life alone
You won't find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all.

I'm gonna need you to try to follow along.
I did the best that I could to try to write you songs.
Now go tell them we sold out, like we're the ones who changed.
I write what I feel, I say what I mean
You can't buy sincerity

Woooh, wooooh

I sold my soul to the open road
You won't find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all.

Don't forget yourselves we made up our minds
We signed 3, 4, 5 on that dotted line X2

You won't find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down
Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back
You're right and I was wrong

You won't find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks I'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and I was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all, this town will be the downfall of us all.

DOWNFALL OF US ALL X4

    I think this song is about how the band was changeing their style and some of the fans weren't happy about it and they were saying too bad. This is what we want to do.
    "Let's have some fun and never change that for anyone."
    And if you're not our fans anymore, too bad. You'll miss us.
    "Try not to miss me when I'm gone."
    We're doing the best we can.
    "I did the best that I could to try to write you songs."
    And we want to write what we feel like.
    "I write what I feel, I say what I mean, you cant buy sincerity."
    It's not easy to please everybody.
    "It's not eaasy making a name for yourself."
    If your not our fans anymore, then fine. Go ahead.
    "You won't find me in the same spot belive mee."
    And,
    "Meet me out past the train tracks, I'm wavin, and not comin' back."
    And we changed because we wanted to, not because anyone told us to.
    "Don'tt forget yourselfs we made up our mind, we signed 3,4,5 on the dotted line."
    Anyways, that's what I think!
    GO A DAY TO REMEMBER!!!
    I LOVE YOU!!!

    It's about them trying to go big and realizing that where they are isn't getting them anywhere so they're leaving home to try their luck in the music buisness.
