GREEN DAY lyrics - Forever Now

GREEN DAY
"Forever Now"

[Part 1 - "I'm Freaking Out"]

My name is Billie and I'm freaking out
I thought therefore I was
Well I can't really figure it out
I sit alone with my thoughts and prayers
Scream out my memories
As if I was never there

Standing at the edge of the world
Is giving me the chills
Looking down the edge of the world
Lost in a tango
It's freaking me out
Burning lights and blackouts

From the edge of the world
From the edge of the world

I'm like a punk rocker on Labor Day
How the hell did I work so hard
To be born this way?
I never learned to read or write so well
(Freaking out)
But I can play the guitar until it hurts like hell

Standing at the edge of the world
Is giving me the chills
Looking down the edge of the world
Lost in a tango
It's freaking me out
Burning lights and blackouts

From the edge of the world
From the edge of the world

[Part 2 - "A Better Way to Die"]

If this is what you call the good life
I want a better way to die
If this is what you call the good life
I want a better way to die

Oh I don't want to think about tomorrow
Don't want to think about it, Oh
It doesn't matter anyway
Oh I wanna start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
I'll put it off another day

I want a new conspiracy
And the silence of a thousand cries
So hurry up
I want a better way to die

[Part 3 - "Somewhere" (Reprise)]

I'm running late to somewhere now
That I don't want to be
Where the future and promises
Ain't what it used to be
I never wanted to compromise
Or bargain with my soul
How did a life on the wild side
Ever get so full?

Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now

Oh I don't want to think about tomorrow
Don't want to think about it, Oh
It doesn't matter anyway
Oh I wanna start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
I'll put it off another day

Oh I don't wanna think about tomorrow
Don't wanna think about it, Oh
It doesn't matter anyway
Oh I I wanna start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
I'll put it off another day
(I ain't gonna stand in line no more!)
