Across The Atlantic – Chasing Streetlights lyrics

Flash back to a time and place
We were out of my minds making minimum wake
Way back then it was the only thing
Back in those days when I was a teenager

Growing up and leaving home
Always on the run with nowhere to go
Gotta keep it moving tell the sun comes up
Got a dream here big but still too young to care

Watching cartoons in the living room, we're playing video games all day
Not waking up tell Friday, hanging by the lake and I was
Singing with my best friends, jumping in the deep end
Growing stronger, talking longer with my father
I could say, I could say we made it out okay

Twenty years have passed,
I can't get a grasp on the times that we had
All the cries that are left
Never felt so fast, we'll never get it back
I always thought it'd last forever
We got older but whatever
I don't care, I won't pretend
I'm still the kid I was back then
I'm still hanging with all my friends
I'm just the kid I was back then

Watching cartoons in the living room, we're playing video games all day
Not waking up tell Friday, hanging by the lake and I was
Singing with my best friends, jumping in the deep end
Growing stronger, talking longer with my father
I could say, I could say we made it out okay

From playing in the sandbox, to driving around toy trucks
To sneaking out of your house and sleeping on the rooftop
In the summer and the spring, we were young and we were free
I wouldn't change a single thing, we always did it our way

Watching cartoons in the living room, we're playing video games all day
Not waking up tell Friday, hanging by the lake and I was
Singing with my best friends, jumping in the deep end
Growing stronger, talking longer with my father
I could say, I could say we made it out okay
