All Time Low – Outlines lyrics

I'm half remembered halfway across the world
Twice removed from my second home
The shadow of a ghost in an old heart
With the leaves gone life 'cause I can't afford to own

When being young starts getting old
The new place saves face, or so I'm told
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop


[Pre-Chorus:]
I'm just a moment
So don't let me pass you by
We could be a story in the morning
But we'll be a legend tonight

[Chorus:]
I'm just a moment
So don't let me pass you by
They can speak our names in a dead language
'Cause you and I, we're alive
But just for a moment

I'm twice the man that I thought I was yesterday
Half the time I'm a world away
A flicker of a soul casting silhouettes
On a face of a town that could not get me to stay

When the sparks gone from the lovers
Just looking for a bus to throw me under
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

[Pre-Chorus:]

[Chorus:]

Just for a moment

When being young starts getting old
The new place saves face, or so I'm told
I'll be the new kid on an old block
A chalk outline on a playground blacktop

[Pre-Chorus:]

[Chorus:]

But just for a moment

Just for a moment

Just for a moment

    I'd venture to guess this song is about All Time Low's fame and the childhood they've left behind, memories of it that have faded over time but managed to stick. In simpler words, it's about fame and leaving old friends behind - not only this, but leaving everything behind. Your childhood memories, the place you used to reside, all of the people you used to spend your time with, etc. However, as the song progresses, it presents itself as a song about not only past friends, but about a past lover. It's probable that this was written about one night of an escape from fame, spending time with someone from your past (possibly an ex-lover) and reminiscing over the good times.
