The Place We Wanna Be

lyrics

Won't you be my guest
I like how you're dressed
Come on over, it's not a drag
Nothing going down
We're just hanging around
You never can tell
Who's gonna break the spell
Going to be the one to say
None of this is real
It don't matter how you feel

We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be
We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be

Don't have to be right
Every time there's a fight
When the possibilities fly
It's so nice to agree
Are you thinking like me?
We heard the hype
All the bitching might
Bring a good deal to it's knees
We hold on for a song
I know we're going to get along

We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be
We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be

Find what keeps you whole
Lose trying to control
It doesn't matter so much in the end
Cause don't you always win?

In a world gone mad
It's the friends you have
Showing up at the gig and staying
Til the very end
When there's nothing happening
We're gonna stumble and fall
Say to hell with it all
Make a run for the money and buy
Anything you want
But what you need is all gone

You gotta get back to the place that you wanna be
You gotta get back to the place that you wanna be
We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be
We gotta get back to the place that we wanna be
