toasted skin lyrics – the academy is…

toasted skin

so the season’s changed your face,
toasted skin turned darker shades
so as to better disguise your figure from the streetlights.

first floor window opened up
as you tip-toe on the back porch,
to meet the new girl on the corner,
make your big plans for the summer.

no one’s gonna stay inside,
we’re singing,
(dododododo)
we are finally here,
and we’re not going nowhere without our friends.
and we can’t stop singing,
(dododododo)
everybody’s making sure we stay up till sunset,
but we can’t forget.

if we ever find our way back,
this is all we’ve got.

s-so you borrow your best friend’s jeep,
cracked her windshield and lost her keys.
crashed the rich kids’ parties,
got kicked off of private beaches.
we introduced our friends to yours,
and we would laugh while we were ignored.
and from coast to coast, we’ll soon disperse,
but let’s live tonight like it’s our first.

we’ve got fast food, tattoos, late talks, longer walks,
checking for the music, for the fireworks and alcohol.

no one’s gonna stay inside,
we’re singing,
(dododododo)
we are finally here,
and we’re not going nowhere without our friends.
and we can’t stop singing,

everybody’s making sure we stay up till sunset,
but we can’t forget.

if we ever find our way back,
this is all we’ve got.

i remember sleeping in with the shades drawn,
casting shadows on the bed
tomorrow feels like it’s meant for the fight,
soaring beyond, twisting above.
and when i sleep, i still can feel it,
i can feel it, i can feel.
when i sleep, i still can feel it,
i can feel it, i can feel.
when i sleep, i still can feel it,
i can feel it, i can feel.

no one’s gonna stay inside,
we’re singing,
(dododododo)
f*ck yeah!
finally here, and we’re not going nowhere without our friends.
and we can’t stop singing,

everybody’s making sure we stay up ’till sunset,
but we can’t forget.

if we ever find our way back,
if we ever find our way back.

first floor window opened up,
as you tip-toe on the back porch.
(if we ever find our way back)
to meet the new girl on the corner,
make your big plans for the summer.
(if we ever find our way back)

if we ever find our way back,
this is all we’ve got.
