Lyrics:

Paper bags and plastic hearts
All are belongings in shopping carts
It’s goodbye
But we got one more night
Let’s get drunk and ride around
And make peace with an empty town
We can make it right

Throw it away
Forget yesterday
We’ll make the great escape
We won’t hear a word they say
They don’t know us anyway
Watch it burn
Let it die
Cause we are finally free tonight

Tonight will change our lives
It’s so good to be by your side
We’ll cry
We won’t give up the fight
We’ll scream loud at the top of our lungs
And they’ll think it’s just cause we’re young
And we’ll feel so alive

  2. eVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL. eVERYTHING IS PERFECT says:

    Had I known that was "the good ole days", I would have stayed.

  3. Watching in Malaysia at 0008hrs January, 29, 2022. Tiktok bring me back here. Really missed my old day.

  5. Censoring "get drunk and drive around" was really before it's time.

  6. Just turned 37 Tuesday. I miss this era of my life, who's with me?

  7. Paper bags and plastic hearts
    All our belongings in shopping carts
    It's goodbye, but we got one more night
    Let's get drunk and ride around
    And make peace with an empty town
    We can make it right
    Throw it away, forget yesterday
    We'll make the great escape
    And we won't hear a word they say
    They don't know us anyway
    Watch it burn, let it die
    'Cause we are finally free, tonight
    Tonight will change our lives
    It's so good to be by your side
    We'll cry, but we won't give up the fight
    We'll scream loud at the top of our lungs
    And they'll think it's just 'cause we're young
    But we'll feel so alive
    Throw it away, forget yesterday
    We'll make the great escape
    And we won't hear a word they say
    They don't know us anyway
    Watch it burn, let it die
    'Cause we are finally free, tonight
    All of the wasted time, the
    Hours that we've left behind, the
    Answers that we'll never find
    They don't mean a thing, tonight
    Throw it away, forget yesterday
    We'll make the great escape
    We won't hear a word they say
    They don't know us anyway
    Throw it away, forget yesterday
    We'll make the great escape
    And we won't hear a word they say
    They don't know us anyway
    Throw it away, forget yesterday
    We'll make the great escape
    And we won't hear a word they say
    They don't know us anyway
    Watch it burn, let it die
    'Cause we are finally free, tonight!
