Boys Like Girls – The Great Escape lyrics

[Verse 1]
Paper bags and plastic hearts,
All our belongings in shopping carts,
It's goodbye,
But we got one more night.
Let's get drunk and ride around,
And make peace with an empty town.
We can make it right.

[Chorus]
Throw it away, forget yesterday,
We'll make the great escape.
We won't hear a word they say,
They don't know us anyway.
Watch it burn, let it die,
'Cause we are finally free tonight.

[Verse 2]
Tonight will change our lives.
It's so good to be by your side,
But we'll cry.
We won't give up the fight.
We'll scream loud at the top of our lungs,
And they'll think it's just cause we're young,
And we'll feel so alive.

[Chorus]
Throw it away, forget yesterday,
We'll make the great escape.
We won't hear a word they say,
They don't know us anyway.
Watch it burn, let it die,
'Cause we are finally free tonight.

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

[Hook]
Throw it away, forget yesterday,
We'll make the great escape.
We won't hear a word they say,
They don't know us anyway.

[Verse 3]
Throw it away, forget yesterday,
We'll make the great escape.
We won't hear a word they say,
They don't know us anyway.

[Chorus]
Throw it away, forget yesterday,
We'll make the great escape.
We won't hear a word they say,
They don't know us anyway.
Watch it burn, let it die,
'Cause we are finally free tonight.
