The All-American Rejects – Gonzo Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I’ll never forget when we started out

The beat of the drum

A face in the crowd

It’s better this way, it’s better this way

How far we’ve come, now not a soul can change

Remember the road running under our feet

We’d shoot for the stars but we’d aim at the trees

It’s better this way, it’s better this way

Gambling with life, it was our turn to play

It’s time, only when you look forward can you see behind

We bought the ticket so we’ll take the ride

[Verse 2]

Every trial and every test

We’d drive to the east and we’d fly to the west

Just running away, just running away

We can’t be different cause they’re all the same

Every night that we’d ever start, and every beat of every heart

Is running away, just running away

Catching our breath at the end we could say

It’s time, only when you look forward could you see behind

Every taste we could get was just sweet sublime

Holding onto the moment we let go of life

We bought the ticket so we’ll take the ride

Day after day in the light

We’re glowing in the dark

Standing was the sketch

Where falling wasn’t hard

We lost ourselves to find our somewhere down the line this time

[Chorus]

Day after day in the light

We’re glowing in the dark

Standing was the sketch

Where falling wasn’t hard

We lost ourselves to find our somewhere down the line this time

For some it’s a god, for me it’s a fact

We’d make a mistake and try to take em all back

It’s better this way, it’s better this way

Out of the grind and then into the grave

It’s time, it’s time, only when you look forward could you see behind

Every taste we could get was just sweet sublime

Holding onto the moment we let go of life

We bought the ticket so we’ll take the ride [x2]
