Here in this diary I write you visions of my summer It was the best I ever had There were chorus' and sing alongs And not a spoken feeling And that unspoken feeling of knowing That right now is all that matters
All the nights we stayed up talking Listening to 80's songs And quoting lines from all those movies that we love It still brings a smile to my face
I guess when it comes down to it Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up These are the best days of our lives The only thing that matters Is just following your heart And you eventually you'll finally get it right
Breaking into hotel swimming pools And wreaking havoc on our world Hanging out at truck stops Just to pass the time The black top singing me to sleep
Lighting fireworks in parking lots Illuminate the blackest nights Cherry cokes under the moonlit summer sky 2015 Riverside, it's time to say goodbye Get on the bus, it's time to go
Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up These are the best days of our lives The only thing that matters Is just following your heart And you eventually you'll finally get it right And you eventually you'll finally get it right And you eventually you'll finally get it right

Ashleah from Red Deer, CanadaI like this song alot, because the second verse was almost EXACTLY my summer of '05. I'll give some examples. -"Hanging out at truckstops just to pass the time." When I first heard that, I froze right up. There wasn't much to do around my old little neighborhood, so me, my best friend at the time Ashtyn, my boyfriend at the time Jeff, and my cousin at the time CJ one day decided to hang out at the Sobey's truckstop. It was kind of weird and random, and this whole time it's been part of a song.. -"Lighting fireworks in parking lots." Let's go back to the same parking lot where Sobey's is. They weren't exactly fireworks, but sparklers are definately the next best thing! =) -"2015 Riverside, it's time to say goodbye." WELL! My old neighborhood is Riverbend. So That's almost Riverside. And then my breakup line for Jeff was, "It's time to say goodbye." -"Get on the bus, it's time to go." And then he got on the bus, because it was time for him to go.
That's my story behind loving this song.
Spencer from Windsor, CanadaThis is a great song and Kris is so talented it really depresses me because it sounds like he had a great childhood and i feel like i didn't half the things i could have. the line "I guess when it comes down to it, being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up, these are the best days of our lives".
Tara from West Palm Beach, Fli like all the old school 70's 80's refrences. hanging out at truck stops just to pass the time. you know. its great it reminds me of being younger even though it has nothing to do with being THAT young. i love it. kind of a classic song here.
Loki from Springville, UtI love this song. It is like my anthem for growing up. It makes me not as scared to leave behind the things of highschool, but just remember them as a better carefree time.
Rob from Castaic, CaGood Song. Not the best on the CD, but still a good song.
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
