Everybody's working for the weekend, everybody wants to drive into the sun
lately it has seemed so selfish, just looking out for number one
saying 'what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine' it's territorial pissings
but there's a different way to live and don't know what you're missing
Me I don't want to hurt nobody, I just want some peace of mind in the afternoon
I just want to pick up the telephone and say "just hold on, i'm coming home to you"
But i never do, I stay singing 'i've got some issues that nobody can see, and all of these emotions are pouring out of me, i will bring them to the light for you"

What is love? Darling, don't hurt me no more. I'm already bruised up, and a little bit sore
I remember there were silver lights upon your sillhuette, your face is one that I cannot forget
I want to swim in the ocean, I want to breath in the air, taste the salt of your skin, in the warm summer air, and we'll follow the moon as it burns and the world as it turns and we'll learn

Everybody is jumping off the deep end, drowning themselves just for fun
I'm not exactly sure how to spend, all my days under the sun
but i've seen the world in the bottom of a Red Solo Cup, while everyone around me yells "pour it up!!" but i've had enough...of these games they play,
we all want to be saved, we just find different ways

While everybody was working for the weekend, I swore to G-d that I found heaven, there were so many nights in the backs of my friends cars, singing bohemian rhapsody and swearing the world was ours, yelling out the windows into the empty streets below
"momma mia, momma mia, let me go!"
