Al said goodbye to his mam and dad for the first time in his life
Tonight he left the house and walked to the waiting car outside
Yeah, and somehow he thought they'd never understand that nothing lasts, yeah and he just knows that time
Is just spinning by and life is passing him by so fast

And sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going nowhere is like giving up
Sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going

Al said to me a few days ago that he just thought for the first time in his life
He feels that the last few years were only a waste of time and that it was
Always a compromise of what he always felt inside
His declaration under the orange street light

And sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going nowhere is like giving up
Sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going, yeah

He was the one who always did the right thing
He was the one who always listened to everything they'd say
But today he's never going back, wohohoh

And nobody said that there would be days like these
There'd be days like these, there'd be days

And sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going nowhere is like giving up
Sometimes I think I'm the only one
That feels like going nowhere is like giving up, whoah
Like giving up, whoah
Like giving up, whoah
I'm not giving up, whoah
