I like to bite my nails and play the air guitar
I like to keep my suitcase packed cause I'm going far
I think you're nice but I don't wanna waste my time
I may be crazy but don't worry I'm just fine

All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out
Want it my way, I do what I do
I know what I like, and maybe it's you
That's right
It's a temporary life
It's a ride that takes you
All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out

I like to go out walking in the pouring rain
I want my rock n roll to make the windows shake
I wait till 3am to call everyone I know
I'm gonna bring the noise, I'm ready here we go

All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out
Want it my way, I do what I do
I know what I like, and maybe it's you
That's right
It's a temporary life
It's a ride that takes you
All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out

It's my life and it's a riot
Come on baby you can't deny it

All the way up, all the way down
Holding my breath, letting it out
Want it my way, I do what I do
I know what I like, baby

All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out
Want it my way, I do what I do
I know what I like, and maybe it's you
That's right
It's a temporary life
It's a ride that takes you
All the way up, all the way down
Never look back, it's time to break out
It's time to break out
It's time to break out
Right now!
