Back to Give It All Back lyrics

Give It All Back

Oh, well, the world never seemed bigger
Than the summer of '98
Living out in the suburbs
Plotting my escape

I grew my hair to my shoulder
Formed a band with a couple of friends
And we called ourselves The Devil's Playhouse
Influences like Bruce and the Band

And we'd sing and play simple 3-chord rock and roll
And miles away, the other kids would just grow old
But we're makin' our own way out
Yeah, we're makin' our own way out

Well, we practiced every week in my bedroom
While my parents were working in town
And one morning in our school assembly
Played a cover of "Don't Let Me Down"

The performance was nervous and awkward
But the passion was really profound
And the kids in the audience laughing
While the band just stared in the ground

What a victory for the kids who believed in rock and roll
I know for me that performance lives and never grows old
But we're makin' our own way out
Yeah, we're makin' our own way out

Well, I'd give it all back just to do it again
Yeah, I'd turn back time, be with my friends
Yeah, I'd give it all back just to do it again
Turn back time, be with my friends

Yeah, I'd give it all back just to do it again
Turn back time, and be with my friends
Yeah, I'd give it all back just to do it again
Turn back time, be with my friends
Tonight
