Song Lyric Sunday – Hello, Brooklyn by All Time Low

All Time Low is one of those bands that never gets old.  Without fail, whenever Adelle gets in my car, she will find one of their songs and turn up the radio so we can jam out.  It takes me back to when she was 13 and going to Warped Tour for the very first time; I remember driving her to concerts with her friends and listening to her tell me everything that happened; I remember deciding that I’d rather be with her at those concerts than listen to her tell me about them, so I ended up going to most of them with her.

I love that I have now taken each one of my kids to a concert because they all love music so much, just in different ways.

This song is so great, because if I had to venture a guess, I would guess they are giving a nod to every city they preform in.  Music is about letting go and having fun; it’s about losing control and sharing that loss of control with an entire crowd who have come together to see their favorite band play live in concert.

I believe music can bring us together and I believe it does in many ways.  Why else would you hang out in a crowd pressed next to sweating, screaming strangers and not give a shit?  I’m not saying there aren’t assholes at concerts, because I’ve met plenty; but for the most part, everyone is there just having fun and listening to great music.

I hope you enjoy my pick this week.

Hello, Brooklyn by All Time Low
Written and Composed by All Time Low: Alex Gaskarth, Jack Barakat, Zack Merrick & Rian Dawson
Music found at AZ Lyrics

This city is so pretty
Under moonlit skies we’ll be hanging like a cigarette
So stunning start runnin’
Tonight’s like a knife would you cut me with your kiss?

I bleed, red lips you’re unbelievable
Can’t miss this chance to take you, out
Here’s my invitation

Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Take the streets all night ’cause we sleep all day
When the world comes crashing down who’s ready to party?
Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Coast to coast I’ll take you down in flames
Let the good times roll we can let go
Everybody knows there’s a party at the end of the world

Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh
Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

This city was your city
Heels on the sidewalk beggin’ for a backbeat
Don’t worry I fight dirty
Tonight’s like a right hook knock you off your feet

I’ll be yours truly unbelievable can’t miss this chance to take you, out
Here’s your invitation

Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Take the streets all night ’cause we sleep all day
When the world comes crashing down who’s ready to party?
Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Coast to coast I’ll take you down in flames
Let the good times roll we can let go
Everybody knows there’s a party at the end of the world

Kiss it all goodbye tonight you’ve never been more alive (You’re so alive)
You’re not afraid to die and I can see it in your eyes, your eyes

Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Take the streets all night ’cause we sleep all day
When the world comes crashing down who’s ready to party?
Hello Brooklyn, Hey LA
Coast to coast I’ll take you down in flames
Let the good times roll we can let go
Everybody knows there’s a party at the end of the world

London, Tokyo, Boston, Frisco
DC, Chicago, Baltimore, Toronto
(There’s a party at the end of the world)
Memphis, Rio, Dublin, Mexico
Paris, here we go
Everybody knows there’s a party at the end of the world
