The Band and I Songtext

The Band and I Songtext

We played Heads Up in a car in Seattle
God Rock on the radio
You look like a superstar and Dom got into Juilliard
And I′m really bad at Heads Up, what do you know?

My drummer fell for a girl in a cookie shop
He said he'd make a move, and then he went with, "Excuse me"
Came a boy and left a man, gotta give it to the band
Greatest one in Oregon, Oregon

And looking back, all I know is

It was Friday nights, it was video gold
Oh, it was shining lights, it was rock ′n' roll
It was the band and I on a 12 bed bus
And it was making and messing it up

It was endless roads, in the same old boots
Oh, it was letting go of everything but you
It was the band and I on a 12 bed bus
If we're living the dream, I hope we never wake up


Snowstorm in the middle of Texas
Called my mother in a Denny′s and lied
Told her I′d been eating then, told her you were just a friend
Told her I was homesick, I hadn't thought of home twice

Drive and then we drive again to an ocean
And I think I knew it then for a moment

It was Friday nights, it was video gold
Oh, it was shining lights, it was rock ′n' roll
It was the band and I on a 12 bed bus
And it was making and messing it up

It was endless roads, in the same old boots
Oh, it was letting go of everything but you
It was the band and I on a 12 bed bus
If we′re living the dream, I hope we never wake up

I hope we never wake up
I hope we never wake up
I hope we never wake up

Two nights in the El Rey went flying
I'm 21 and I feel evergreen
The band go home, I stay to write, we drive around, I stay the night
Guys, I′m pretty sure it's the American Dream


It was changing clocks, it was Tina stoned
Oh, it was midnight stops at border control
Yeah, it was power cuts, it was certain doom
It was living in the Little Rock laundry room

Oh, it was breaking down, it was falling in love
In a gas station by the pickup trucks
In Philadelphia, it was crystal clear
We are the best damn band that's ever played right here

It was magic, babe, pure and strong
It was the last man standing for the Eagles song
It was a far-flung wish when we were young
Now we′re living the dream and I hope we never wake up
