All Signs Point to Lauderdale

Album: What Separates Me from You (2010)
  • I hate this town, it's so washed up
    And all my friends don't give a fuck
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
    When will I find where I fit in

    One two three four

    Remember when I tried
    I never strayed to far from you
    Forever by your side
    No matter what I was going through
    But now I never know the things to say to you
    Now help me, but know I'm still on your side
    I never showed just what you do to me
    This song was always wrong

    I hate this town, it's so washed up
    And all my friends don't give a fuck
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
    When will I find where I fit in
    I hate this town

    'Cause no one can understand
    I just can't be tied down
    Nothing comes between me and my plans
    So now I never know the things to say to you
    Now help me prove that I'm still on your side
    I never showed just what you do to me
    The timing was always wrong

    I hate this town, it's so washed up
    And all my friends don't give a fuck
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
    When will I find where I fit in

    And don't believe a word they're telling to you
    Don't believe a word they're telling to you
    They let me down, when will I find where I fit in
    I hate this town.

    My world cannot ever bring me down
    Everything I had is turning back around
    Because our time's worth something
    Bigger then both you and me

    I can't live my life always backing down
    I got to do this right, then make it make a sound
    'Cause I'm not here for nothing
    At least I can say I stand for something

    You and me we stand for something

    I hate this town, it's so washed up
    And all my friends don't give a fuck
    They'll tell me that it's just bad luck
    When will I find where I fit in

    And don't believe a word they're telling to you
    Don't believe a word they're telling to you
    They let me down, when will I find where I fit in
