my lyricsbox
Up on a hill is where we begin
This little story a long time ago
Start to pretend, stop pretending
It seems this game is simply never ending

Oh, in the sun sun having fun
It's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now
Let me go, oh, let me g-g-g-g-g-g-go

Leaving just in time
Staying for a while
Rolling in the ocean
Trying to catch her eye
Work hard and say it's easy
Do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different
so i pretend I'm leaving

our fears are different here
We train in AVA
I wish you hadn't stayed
My vision's clearer now,
but I'm unafraid
Flying overseas, no time to feel the breeze
I took too many varieties

Oh, I'm in the sunshine having fun
It's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now
Let me go, woooooo, darling let me g-g-g-g-g-g-go

Leaving just in time
Staying for a while
Rolling in the ocean
Trying to catch her eye
Work hard and say it's easy
Do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different
So this is why I'm leaving
This song is from the album "Is This It".
