Elysium

lyrics

It was late one night we were cruising down,

The back streets and valleys we were looking proud,

The boys in the front were screaming out,

Lets hit this night with a thousand pounds,

Of pain and pleasure and anything,

That makes us feel like we’re Gods & Kings,

One for the road and one for the night,

We’ll see you in the kingdom of the afterlife.

Why….. why why is it now, we’re just nineteen,

Yeah we tried… we tried to make you proud, were you listening,

Out of time, we didn’t see the sign’s, it was our time,

So rewind, wanna go back in time and have another try.

We were out for the night just remembering,

The times and the places we’d sweltered in,

The work and the faces we had made as friends

This night would be the best and never end

Till, ol mate took a turn too fast and then,

We ended up skidding around a bend,

Yeah, we left that road at 100 miles,

And someone said its our time to tonight.

Why….. why why is it now, we’re just nineteen,

Yeah we tried… we tried to make you proud, were you listening,

Out of time, we didn’t see the sign’s, it was our time,

So rewind, wanna go back in time and have another try.

So take another shot were leaving here,

Going to start a life in Elysium,

The four of us boys will take a bow and,

We’ll say goodbye yeah we’ll leave this town,

Why….. why why is this now, we’re just nineteen,

Yeah we tried… we tried to make you proud, were you listening,

Out of time, we didn’t see the sign’s, it was our time,

So rewind, wanna go back in time and have another try.

Why….. why why is this now, we’re just nineteen,

Yeah we tried… we tried to make you proud, were you listening,

Out of time, we didn’t see the sign’s, it was our time,

So rewind, wanna go back in time and have another try.
