Hinder - The Life Lyrics

I'm leaving tonight
Down the same dirt road
A million times
I've driven just to get home
And I ain't ever looking back
For nothing

Headed for the coast
Looking for the high life
Everybody knows
It's nothing but a good time
And I sold everything I had
For something
I can't seem to find

So this is the life they talk about
This is the I can't live without
When the real world crashes down
Oh if they could see me now
When all the dreams are all your own
Turn to nightmares all alone
It hits you right between the eyes
This is the life
This is the life

These four walls feel more like a prison
Instead of pure highs
I couldn't wait to live in
So I just drink myself to sleep
Again
Can't escape my mind
This ain't like a movie
It's getting hard to hide
The more it's doin' to me
Don't know how long I can keep
I'm going
Crazy all the time

So this is the life they talk about
This is the life I can't live without
When the real world crashes down
Oh if they could see me now
When all the dreams are all your own
Turn to nightmares all alone
It hits you right between the eyes
This is the life
This is the life

Nothings ever what it seems
Maybe that grass ain't so green
Nothings ever out of reach
When you're seventeen

So this is the life they talked about
This is the I can't live without
When the real world crashes down
Oh if they could see me now
When all the dreams are all your own
Turn to nightmares all alone
It hits you right between the eyes
And this is the life
This is the life
Yeah
