Hold on tight don’t let go
We can’t slow down. We go for broke
If you knew me then. You wouldn’t let me in
I don’t blame you for how it’s been
You were crazy. I was crazy too. How about you?
Hold on tight, don’t let go, we can’t slow down, we go for broke
Or we’re going home
The marquee lights. They don’t shine as bright
As they did when we were kids.
We were messed up then, no matter where we’ve been
Where we go, you can count me in
