Lyrics Christian Matt, Toby - Life of the Party

I picked up an old acoustic
Thought my hands knew how to use it
But these days aren't like the old ones
Or the songs we sang on the long way home
I sat back down beside that girl who was texting
And laughed out loud over obsessions with next things
And how every good song has the words

Tonight
Take back
And burn
By your side
Miss the way
And I will never learn
So if there's nothing new to say
Then let's just say it all again tonight
We had the best times of our lives
Let's do it all again
Take back my place there by your side

And never let it end
The hours passed like days
The nights were our escape
We held onto our friends
And made a couple million mistakes
We were so reckless and young
Go get your CD case
Let's drive around this town

Sing Dashboard at the top of our lungs
I still remember my parents divorcing
It took 10 long years of the back and forth thing
Finally I saw it in my mother's eyes
A road you can choose that you can't come back from
And the words you can say to add some traction

But it's what you didn't say
That keeps you awake
So we tell ourselves it's late
And we save it all for another day
We had the best times of our lives
Let's do it all again
Take back my place there by your side
And never let it end
The hours passed like days
The nights were our escape
We held onto our friends

And made a couple million mistakes
We were so reckless and young
Go get your CD case
Let's drive around this town
Sing Dashboard at the top of our lungs
I want to go back
I want to go back tonight
Could it be that we're one and the same

(I want to be real)
The world never showed but it gave us a name
(To feel brand new)
That hole in your heart is the same shape as mine
(To talk like friends)
The piece has gone missing that filled up our lives
(And laugh with you)

I'll stand here and I'll take the worst
But the song was my own and I sang every verse
I'm giving myself up there's nowhere to run
If just for one night...
Forget all our pride
And have fun
I want to go back
To the life of the party
I want to go back
I want to go back tonight

We had the best times of our lives
Let's do it all again
Take back my place there by your side
And never let it end
The hours passed like days
The nights were our escape
We held onto our friends
And made a couple million mistakes
We were so reckless and young
Go get your CD case
Let's drive around this town
Sing Dashboard at the top of our lungs
