Just talked to this girl who used to live here on my street
After all these years you're here and you remember me
She said her old boyfriend packed up and headed back east
But she always knew someday... he would go

She just got a new job, but doubts that it will last
So let's take a drink and never think "yeah, here's to the past"
She says it's so funny how life runs out so fast
It's just another wasted day

A boring life in a boring town with that same old crowd
And I used to say I'd never stay, but I'm rotting here today
With that same old crowd that's always been around
And I always thought I'd be the first to go

That same old crowd that drags me down
Another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
A boring life in a boring town

Just talked to this girl who used to live here on my street
After all these years you're here and it's still just you and me
Sometimes I can't believe after all these years
I just think I'll never leave here
She said it's so funny how life burns out so fast
Let's take another drink and here's to the past

That same old crowd that drags me down
Another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
A boring life in a boring town

And remember when they'd look through you
And they'd look past me, we were the ones they said would always leave
So when you go just think of me
Think of me

A boring life in a boring town with the same old crowd
And I used to say I'd never stay, but I'm rotting here
Today with that same old crowd that's always been around
And I always thought that, yeah now I always thought that
Hey now, I always thought I'd be the first to go

A boring life in a boring town
A boring life in a boring town
A boring life in a boring town
