I wish my life was like a John Hughes movie
Good times and easy on the dark side
I wish my life was like a John Hughes movie
Bright lights, always looking for a better life

We were looking for each other
In the bars on the west side
We were looking for the summer
When it's cold outside

This is going to be good

Life is coming up aces
Everything is coming up aces
We found a way to make money out of
Broken boys and difficult girls

Reality is wonderful

We were... waiting
For the world to begin

Things are so much better now

I have a good reason to
Want to get wasted again

We were slumming for a buzz
In a place that used to be the old school
We were happy for the pain of being
Lame enough to want to look cool

I really think that this is going to be good

Life is coming up aces
Everything is coming up aces
We can make a good living out
Of broken lives and empty hearts

Ain't this entertaining watching people fall apart

We were wasting time waiting
For the world to begin

Things are so much better now

I have a good reason to
Want to get wasted again

Black... , white trash
There isn't any limit to the shame
These people have

Good people do bad things
Have sex with an ex in the bathroom
On their wedding day

Pretty faces with no soul

Everybody needs a chance to
Win themselves a better life

Everybody wins a better life
Everybody wins a better life
Everybody wins a better life
Everybody wins a better life
