  • These streets are like an ol' jean jacket
    Feels good anytime
    What have I been waiting for?
    It's high time that I dust off the magic
    Put my face back in the crowd
    And find somebody new

    My phone used to ring but I just wasn't ready
    The smell of the smoke and the tunes too heavy
    One memory would tear down the levy
    But tonight I don't feel a thing

    Finally, yeah, I've made it through the rebound
    The past ain't dragging me down
    I'm back to who I was before you
    On a perfect night
    There's no telling where or what I might
    Find before the morning light
    Starts a brand new day

    Even that autumn air feels sweeter
    Filling up my chest
    There's a comfort in the cold
    And somehow the taste of these Budweiser's
    Fit just like a friend
    They welcome me to lean

    Yeah, you live and you learn and you try to do better
    She wanted to go and I finally let her
    But broken hearts like wood will splinter
    Tonight I don't feel a thing

    Finally, yeah, I've made it through the rebound
    The past ain't dragging me down
    I'm back to who I was before you
    On a perfect night
    There's no telling where or what I might
    Find before the morning light
    Starts a brand new day

    Finally, yeah, I've made it through the rebound
    The past ain't dragging me down
    I'm back to who I was before you
    On a perfect night
    There's no telling where or what I might
    Find before the morning light
    Starts a brand new day

    Yeah, starts a brand new day
    Yeah, you live and you learn
    You live and you learn and you try to do better
    She wanted to go
    Just trying to be better

    My phone used to ring but I just wasn't ready
    The smell of the smoke and the tunes too heavy
    One memory would tear down the levy
    Just like a friend

    Yeah, you live and you learn and you try to do better
    She wanted to go and I finally let her
    Yeah, I finally let her go Writer/s: DAVID NAIL, SCOOTER CARUSOE, SHANE MCANALLY
