Years went by and
We got older
Remember the days,
When gas was sold for 1.50 a gallon
Oh how things have changed,
Like those stylish fads
And the look on your face

When you see me for the first time in years
We swore we'd never end up here
Well I won't leave you alone, if it's gone, I'll move on
It's time to leave, while my eyes are still dry
It's time to leave while my head is held high

Time to bolt, time to bail, time to go, where to?
Well I really don't know

I'm gone, so long, see you soon,
Up, up and away like a rising balloon
I'm just stupid enough to pack up and leave,
Taking all that you have trusted and confided it in me

Hug me now because you might lose your chance
I am crouched in my sprinting stance

Time to bolt, time to bail, time to go
'Cause I'll let you get way too close
I'm gone so long, see you soon
Up, up and away like a rising balloon
I'm just crazy enough to leave you behind,
Though you're nothing like I have found or will find

Years went by and
We got older
Remember the days,
When gas was sold for 1.50 a gallon
Oh how things have changed,
Like thoes stylish fads
And the look on your face
When you see me for the first time in years
We swore we'd never end up here

Well I won't be alone.
