Everybody Learns from Disaster Lyrics

by Dashboard Confessional

We went rolling up the coast til there was no more coast to wander
We tried every different road just to see which took us further
We were living on the run, but there was no one chasing after
We were looking out for love, and we were flirting with disaster
While the world fades out

We stayed in the sun too long
Suffered a terrible burn
Now everybody learns from disaster
We stayed on the run too long
Hoping we'd never return
Now everybody learns from disaster
We watched the sun burn down into cinders.

We turned out into the planes, we turned in when we got tired
We slept two across the bench, and we fit three under the covers
We had just enough cash left to top the tent and fill the cooler
And we lit the van with dreams until the sun turned into cinders
And the world fades out

We stayed in the sun too long
Suffered a terrible burn
Now everybody learns from disaster
We stayed on the run too long
Hoping we'd never return
Now everybody learns from disaster

We watched the sun burn down
We watched the sun burn down
We watched the sun burn down into cinders, into cinders
We watched the sun burn down
We watched the sun burn down into cinders

We stayed in the sun too long
Suffered a terrible burn
Now everybody learns from disaster.
We watched the sun burn down
We watched the sun burn down into cinders
Oh, into cinders
Oh

We watched the sun burn down
We watched the sun burn down into cinders
