Written by Sam Le Beau.


I was the bad boy at school
I never thought too much through
It was all in good fun, I’m done
Noone could point me in the right direction

I know it’s early, but I’m ready
I’m gonna do this for myself
I dont want to change and I dont want to stay
and I dont care so I’m walking away

Live fast, die young
leave a beautiful stain on the hearts of everyone
Time goes on

There’s nothing left here for me
Get me out of this town
I take everything back, glad I made you all laugh
but I’m walking away

Makes me sick, makes me sad
This is mine, I’m gonna do what I want with it
I fucked up, I was right

I’ll see you soon

Fronted by Paul Conant and Sam LeBeau. ... more
