Boys Like Girls – Holiday lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was younger I used to be wild,
As wild as an elephant's child.
No one could hold me down,
No one could keep me around.
Now it's your turn, take a shot.
Baby, show me everything that you got.
Maybe you can keep me alive,
Maybe you can get in my mind,
But it's only a matter of time.

[Chorus]
Before I run far away,
I need to take a holiday.
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.

[Verse 2]
My father, he was always wise,
As wise as an elephant's eyes.
He couldn't hold me down,
He couldn't keep me around.
So are you gonna take your shot?
It's the only one that you got.
Maybe I'll go out on limb,
Maybe I'll jump in for a swim
When the lights go dim.

[Chorus]
Before I run far away,
I need to take a holiday.
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.

(Need to take a holiday)
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

[Bridge]
I need a new start.
I've broken too many hearts,
And I don't have any clue where to go.
I don't know,
But maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday.

[Verse 3]
When I was younger I used to be wild,
As wild as an elephant's child,
And I don't think I'll ever change.
I think I'm gonna stay the same.

[Chorus]
I'll run away,
I need to take a holiday.
(Need to take a holiday)
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
(Set off on a new chase)
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.

[Hook]
A new start,
I've broken too many hearts,
And I don't have any clue where to go.
I don't know,
And maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday.

[Outro]
All of the wasted time,
The hours that were left behind,
The answers that we'll never find,
And they don't mean a thing tonight.

    This song as martin has described it is basically about the last 5 years of his life all warpped up into one, it has emotion from his mothers death, in it, its about feeling the pressure about growin up, and what he should make of his life, it mentions his father; his best friend in the enitre world, who he is very close to, its about needing to find your self, before you can really do anything with your life, and reflecting on everything he's ever been through, ever relationship, ever friendship, ever loss, and every gain. I really love how this was the last track on the album and it ends the same way as the great escape (the first track) does, its like saying that at the end of finding your self, you realize you're really back where you strated, what matters is your close friends and family, who will get you through everything, who you can rely on, and nothign else.

    The fact that he talks of himself as a child as well as his father is very intriguing, as it shows a sliver of his childhood, and the whole thing seems as if he's tired of living so wildly and being a part of so many stories, breaking so many hearts. I love the, 'are you gonna take your shot, it's the only one that you've got, ' as if to see if anyone's up to the task of bringing him back down to earth and back home, because he doesn't know where to go himself either, only that he needs to get away.
