And stay up all night and sleep all day,
We were smart kids with too much to say.
And so, so sure that they were missing out,
They're the ones who were missing out, and
We were elemental, talked down to bear essentials,
Who knew we'd get so far?

Cause our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops.
They said we'd burn so bright.
We'd burn this city and go.

Play it again,(our Games of Love and Lust)
There's no such thing (no there's never too much).
And we were so, so sure, NO we never had a doubt.
Now were counting down days to getting out.

We were elemental, talked down to bear essentials.
Who knew we'd get so far?

Cause our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops.
They said we're wasting our lives,
Oh at least we know, that if we die - we lived with passion.
They said we'd burn so bright.
We'd burn this city and go.

Pack our bags and lets get away - they're catching on to us.
Pack our bags and get away- they're catching on to us. [2x]

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh [3x]

Cause our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops.
They said we're wasting our lives,
Oh at least we know, that if we die - we lived with passion.
They said we'd burn so bright.
We'd burn this city, and go.


(Burn this city and go,
And oh, we'd burn this city and go.
Yeah wed burn this city and go)

[Chanted twice]
Cause our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops.
They said we're wasting our lives,
Oh at least we know, that if we die - we lived with passion.
They said we'd burn so bright.
Oh-oh-oh!

Cause our days were numbered by nights on too many rooftops.
They said we're wasting our lives,
Well we're not wasting our lives.
