Restless Lyrics

We were dreaming all the dreams that kids dream.
We stared down life at its most frightening.
We defied the rain and lightning.
Then we got older and we left our hometowns.
We went to school and tried to hold a job down,
But the future was such a letdown.

Now I'm soaked to the bone, but I don't want to go home
Because there's a place I've gotta be.
And you can't go back, you can never go back.
At least that's what they all say to me.

And I'll rage against the voices that tell me to find my place.
I just can't settle down in some small town and let my whole life go to waste.
Because I'm restless. I know there's gotta be something else.
And I can't just keep on lying to myself.

On the docks, we'd count the constellations.
We fell in love and lost our patience
To the Seventies rock station.
Then I was on a rooftop in the summertime.
Manhattan sunset skyline
And the warm taste of cheap red wine.

We'd smoke cigarettes and flick our ash at the sun,
Spend days like one-dollar bills.
Each night was a brand-new shot at life
And I'm not sure that they ain't still.

And I'll rage against the voices that tell me to find my place.
And I'll take my time with a bottle of wine and spit it right back in their faces.
Because I'm restless. I know there's gotta be something else.
And I can't just keep on lying to myself.

And I'll rage against the voices that tell me to find my place.
""Just work until you die and never ask why. Forget the things you're trying to chase.""

And I'll rage against the voices that tell me to find my place.
I've got faith in the night, the music's all right, and there's some demons that I've got to face.
Because I'm restless. I know there's gotta be something else.
And I can't just keep on lying to myself.
