Just talked to this girl,
Used to live, yea, on my street. (woah-oh-oh)
After all these years you're here,
And you remember me. (woah-oh-oh)
She said her old boyfriend
Packed up and headed back east.
But she always knew some day...
He would go.

She just got a new job
And she's down to her last. (woah-oh-oh)
So let's take a drink and never think, yea
Here's to the past. (woah-oh-oh)
She said it's so funny,
How life runs out so fast.
It's just another wasted day.

A boring life in a boring town
With the same old crowd. (woah-oh-oh)
When I used to say, that I'd never say
That I'm rotting here today. (woah-oh-oh)
With that same old crowd
That's always been around.
And I always thought I'd be
The first to go.

That same old crowd,
That drags me down.
Another day in a boring town.
That same old crowd,
That brings me down.
A boring life in a boring town.

Just talked to this girl,
Used to live, yea, on my street.
After all these years you're here,
And it's still just you and me.
Sometimes I can't believe after all these years
I just think I'll never leave here.
She said it's so funny,
How life runs out so fast.
Let's take another drink,
And here's to the past.

That same old crowd,
That drags me down.
Another day in a boring town.
That same old crowd,
That brings me down.
A boring life in a boring town.

And remember when they looked through you,
And then looked past me.
We were the ones they said would always leave.
So when you go, just think of me,
Think of me. (woah-oh-oh)

[Interlude Thingy]

A boring life in a boring town
With the same old crowd. (woah-oh-oh)
When I used to say, i'd never say
That I'm rotting here today. (woah-oh-oh)
With that same old crowd,
That's always been around.
And I always thought that...
Yea how we always thought that..
And I always thought I'd be,
The first to go!

A boring life,
A boring town. (woah-oh-oh)
A boring life,
A boring town. (woah-oh-oh)
A boring life,
A boring town!
