Swing Life Away by Rise Against

Am I loud and clear
Or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm
Or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer
Or are we just getting more lost?
I’ll show you mine
If you show me yours first
Let’s compare scars
I’ll tell you whose is worse
Let’s unwrite these pages
And replace them with our own words
We live on front porches and swing life away
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor, I’ll slave ’til the end
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand
I’ve been here so long
Think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold
Summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and
Settle down where palm trees grow
I’ve got some friends
Some that I hardly know
We’ve had some times
I wouldn’t trade for the world
We chase these days down with talks
Of the places that we will go
We live on front porches and swing life away
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor, I’ll slave ’til the end
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand
Until you hold my hand
I’ll show you mine
If you show me yours first
Let’s compare scars
I’ll tell you whose is worse
And let’s unwrite these pages
And replace them with our own words
We live on front porches and swing life away
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor, I’ll slave ’til the end
I won’t cross these streets until you hold my hand
Swing life away
Swing life away
Swing life away
Swing life away
