Running With The Boys

Album: Little Machines (2014)
  • We were kind of heroes, wicked little machines
    Captains and Cavalries forming empires in shade of the trees
    Without hesitation, kings of the forest town
    Holding the ocean down
    We're half this heavy and twice this loud

    So turn up the noise
    Just through the night
    Running with the boys
    Your hand in mine
    Singing every song, loving every line
    'Till the night is gone
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times

    Was what you made it
    We had our friends around
    All the images and sounds, super imposing to old backgrounds
    We used to be clumsy, hm, lost in a thousand ways
    Captivated by the craze,
    Hold your hands down my favorite days

    So turn up the noise
    Just through the night
    Running with the boys
    Your hand in mine
    Singing every song, loving every line
    'Till the night is gone
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times

    Suspicion rose in our head
    It was only underneath the beds, beds
    Saline eyes didn't have to hide
    They were always open way too wide, way too wide

    So turn up the noise
    Just through the night
    Running with the boys
    Your hand in mine
    Singing every song, loving every line
    'Till the night is gone
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times
    Just like the old times (Just like the old times)
    Just like the old times (We're gonna have it all)
    Just like the old times Writer/s: Andrew Pearson, Drew Pearson, Lights Valerie Poxleitner
