Holiday

Album: Boys Like Girls (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Singer/Guitarist Martin Johnson explained: "This song brings you back to the beginning of the record. Starting over, moving on, running away. I have the hardest time sticking to things. I constantly re-invent myself and push my focus in different directions. This song kind of lays my erratic personality on the table... sort of as a 'take it or leave it.' And then it starts all over."
