Song Lyric Sunday – Love Drunk by Boys Like Girls

I know I’m in vacation mode, but I didn’t think it would be this hard to find a song that I wanted to post. I also wanted to stick with the word “drink” but this is the only song that came to mind. At least it’s the word, just in a different tense (let’s just ignore the fact that it actually changes the meaning of the word..).

It isn’t my favorite song or band and the lyrics are far from deep, but I suppose it’s OK to keep things lighter on this blog of mine sometimes. It is a fun song and it got me moving this morning.

I do hope you all enjoy. I also hope you all have a fantastic Sunday!

The top down in the summer sun
The day we met was like a hit an run
An I still taste it on my tongue (taste it on my tongue)
The sky was burning up like fireworks
You made me want you oh so bad it hurt
But girl, in case you haven’t heard
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
Forever is over
We used to kiss all night
Now it’s just a bar fight
So don’t call me crying
Say hello to goodbye
‘Cause just one sip would make me sick
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
But now it’s over
Hot sweat and blurry eyes
We’re spinning on a roller coaster ride
The world stuck in black and white (stuck in black and white)
You drove me crazy every time we touched
But now I’m so broken that I can’t get up
Oh girl, you make me such a lush
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
Forever is over
We used to kiss all night
Now its just a bar fight
So don’t call me crying
Say hello to goodbye (oh yeah)
‘Cause just one thing (oh yeah)
would make me say
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
But now its over
All the time I wasted on you
All the bullshit you put me through
I’m checking into rehab ’cause everything we had
Didn’t mean a thing to you
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
But now I’m sober
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
Forever is over
We used to kiss all night
Now it’s just a bar fight
So don’t call me crying
Say hello to goodbye (oh yeah)
‘Cause just one thing (oh yeah)
Would make me say
I used to be love drunk
But now I’m hungover
I’ll love you forever
But now its over
Now it’s over
Still taste it on my tongue
Now it’s over

Song Lyric Sunday – The Great Escape by Boys Like Girls

It took me a little while to find something I wanted to share. I did think of Seasons of Love from Rent, but I didn’t necessarily want to share that one, so I kept looking. I finally took my pain-wracked body downstairs to look at my iTunes on my computer. It didn’t take me long before I found exactly what I was looking for.

I fell in love with this band what seems like forever ago. I’m surprised I haven’t shared any of their songs before for SLS, but I’m happy to share them with you today. I remembered why I love them so much when I listened to this song again today. It’s upbeat and fun and I just really needed this one right now.

They do have a song called Five Minutes to Midnight, but I had more fun with this one, and they do sing “All of the wasted time, the hours that were left behind,” so I think I’ve hit the theme for this week. Also, this one always made me think of graduation, when you’re finally done with all the rules and you can just escape!

I do hope you enjoy!

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 drive 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
But 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
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
All of the wasted time
The hours that were 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
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
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
