Up Against the Wall Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We've seen her type before
Sandals and the hair
They fall in love with big dumb boys
And we sit and stare
Verse 2
So we walk the long way home
Glasses in our hands
When the last of the ice is eaten
Throw them as far as we can
Verse 3
There's a problem
There's no sleepy girl to wrap you in her loving arms
There's a lizard on the doorstep
And there is music in my head
Verse 4
We put the world on hold
Two young men growing old
We talk of years like lost weekends
And the harbor shrugs
Verse 5
Because friends are getting fewer
And we vow life will be fuller
But if the last of our dreams is broken
We'll walk the same way home
Verse 6
There's a gold star on your forehead
But there is trouble up ahead
Charlie what'll become of us?
I had my dreams for both of us
For both of us
Verse 7
You might be unworthy
But you remember what I remember
And that's enough to care
You don't fall off the rails
