Less Than Jake – American Idle lyrics

[Verse 1]
We were the kids from the cul-de-sacs
That got out somehow without lookin' back
It's ova, it's ova
We were the ones that grew up too fast
On the front porch steps when we still had friends
It's ova, it's ova
We were the kids who were laughin' last
With big ideas & failed attempts
It's ova, it's ova
Repeat it now, repeat it with me

[Chorus]
It's in the way, we can't explain
Why we were the ones who got away
It's in the way these memories will fade
So we always keep them locked away
Lock them away

[Verse 2]
We were the kids who would scrape insane
And we'd wait around for some betta days
It's ova, it's ova
We were the kids that looked one-by-one
We said we would when we were young
It's ova, it's ova
Repeat it now, repeat it with me

[Chorus X2]
It's in the way, we can't explain
Why we were the ones who got away
It's in the way these memories will fade
So we always keep them locked away
It's in the way we slowly replace
The pieces we left in yesterday
Repeat it now, repeat it with me
Repeat it now, repeat it with me

[Outro]
It's in the way these memories will fade
So we always keep them locked away
We were the kids from the cul-de-sacs
That got out somehow without lookin' back
It's ova
