Lyrics

Single version

I want things to excite me
I gotta break this routine
I don't want life just to pass me by
When there's so much to be seen

Like sneaking out a bedroom window at night
To meet a girl, perhaps two
That feeling I get when I do as I please
I find again is something new

I catch you right on the Greyhound
Bound for city thrills
I've been feeling restless
Have to leave Smallville

I don't know what will be waiting for me
And I don't even care
Anywhere is better than where I'm from
I'll be alright when I get there

Temptations
Have some fun, have a good time
We're still young
Free to run, get out alive
And when we're older this will all make sense
And we can laugh about it with our friends
Until then
Temptations
In the end we will be fine

Heading down to the race tracks
So I can lay my bets
I didn't get lucky
But I'm not broke yet

Do you think they'll be a judgement day
Where we answer for our debts?
But I would gladly pay them in full
To live a life without regrets

All or none
I rolled the dice cause without risk, life's no fun
Everyone
Makes mistakes that are so dumb
Even if you fall on your face
It will not matter
Cause you got the time to waste

Temptations
Have some fun, have a good time
We're still young
Free to run, get out alive
When we're older this will all make sense
And we can laugh about it with our friends
Until then
Temptations
In the end we will be fine
We're still young
Let's have fun
Have a good time
Have a good time
Have a good time

Demo version

There’s a demon inside me
I’ve gotta let out
Teasing girls around me
How many, I can’t count

Snuck into the bar last night
Met a biker named Liz
She says that older women are so much more appreciative

I have some friends who meddled with
Powdered happiness
They praised the pusher who peddles the
harder stuff like this
It’s such a boring life to be a goody-goody all the time
There’s a whole world awake and I don’t want to be left behind

I’m going crazy, out of my head
It’s eating up my brain
I’m only gonna be young once in this life
So tonight I feel like raising hell

Temptations
Having fun, picking boys up
Temptations
When you’re young, there’s no rules, yeah

I found myself on a Greyhound
Down for city thrills
I was feeling restless
Had to leave Smallville

I don’t know what’s waiting for me and I don’t even care
Anything is better than where I’m from
I’ll be alright when I get there

I look around, I can already see
Playin’ safe ain’t me
When you’re young they want to keep you under lock and key
But tonight I’m busting free

Temptations
Having fun, picking boys up
Temptations
When you’re young, there’s no rules, yeah

Got clipped down on Broadway Street
Told the man my car broke down
"Save it for the judge, punk, you’re coming with us
You’re going to get killed in this part of town"

Temptations
Having fun, picking boys up
Temptations
When you’re young, there’s no rules, yeah

Temptations
Having fun, picking boys up
Temptations
When you’re young, there’s no rules, yeah
