Back to All My Friends lyrics

All My Friends

That's how it starts
We go back to your house
You check the charts
And start to figure it out

And if it's crowded, all the better
Because we know we're gonna be up late
But if you're worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay
That's how it starts

And so it starts
You switch the engine on
We set controls for the heart of the sun
One of the ways we show our age

And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up
If the sun comes up and I still don't wanna stagger home
Then it's the memory of our betters
That are keeping us on our feet

You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
And the next five years trying to be with your friends again
You're talking forty-five turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, but it's better when we pretend

It comes apart
The way it does in bad films
Except in parts
When the moral kicks in

Though we're running out of the drugs
And the conversation's grinding away
I wouldn't trade one stupid decision
For another five years of life

You drop the first ten years just as fast as you can
And the next ten people who are trying to be believed
When you're blowing eighty-five days in the middle of this
Yeah, I know it gets tired only wearing on friends tonight

To tell the truth
Oh, this could be the last time
So when we go
Like a sail's force into the night

And if I made a fool, if I made a fool
If I made a fool on the road, there's always this
And if I'm sewn into submission
I can still come home to this

And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand
You leave conceit on the plane or review what you said
When you're drunk and the kids look impossibly tired
You think over and over, hey, I finally did

Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand
You look concerted on yourself your ridiculous prop
You forgot what you meant when you read what you said
And you always knew you were tired, but then

Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?

If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
