Track Name: Against Me! (And Everyone Else)
I used to go to the mall
And shoplift at the record store
Then I sold the CDs in school
With the money I got
I asked some 18 year old dude
To buy me cigarettes and booze
And on the weekends I shared the drinks
With my friends
We got drunk at the riverside
And listened to them Rock'n'Roll songs

We were
Anti-establishment
Anti-government
Anti everything and anything
Even ourselves

I joined the Communist Youth
Because my brother quoted Marx all day
I found a way to not think about myself too much
I thought it was easier to find someone else that is to blame
For all the bullshit that was going on
In this world
For all the bullshit that was going on
In my life

I was
Anti-establishment
Anti-government
Anti-mankind
But I didn't know that all this time I was just fighting against myself

A few years of teenage rage passed
Before I realised, there's nothing I can do
Except writing these songs
To make it easier for me
To deal with everything that's going on

Let's be
Anti-depressant
Anti-reluctant
Anti-nothing
Everybody sing along
We are
Pro-life
Pro-love
Pro-friends
So raise your hands up and go...
Track Name: Coming Back To You
I'm walking through the night
Smoking my last cigarette
My hands are dirty
My feet are soaking wet
I can't recall why I'm walking away
But I can't think of a reason that would make me stay.

I'm coming back to you

The day when I arrived
I was sure I'm here to stay
I just felt right at home
Altough I was so far away
But then I started moving further from the shore
Just to see you smile
When you're waiting at the door

That's why I'm coming back to you
I'm coming back to you

California will always be in my heart
But home is not always where the heart is
It's where you wanna be.

That's why I'm coming back to you
I'm coming back to you
Track Name: Do You Remember?
Do you remember
The first time we kissed
We were skinny dipping in a pond
All the drinks they made us dizzy
And we were surrounded by the sound
Of passing cars and rushing water
But we knew what we had found

Still after all this
We couldn't figure out that we belong together
So I left and came back and I was looking for another girl
While you were always near.

Oh, I'm so in love with you, my dear

Do you remember
The first time I took a cab to your house
In the middle of the night
You thought that I was joking
When I told you, I miss you
And that I really wanna see you tonight

But still after all this
We couldn't figure out that we belong together
So I left for a second time
While I wanted to be near you
And finally I came back for good

It's been a few years now
And we are still together
We finally figured out what was missing in our lives
I'll never look for another girl again
Because you are always here.

Oh, I'm so in love with you my dear
I'm so in love with you, my dear!
Track Name: The Taste of Wine
I've been sitting in this hotel room
For quite some time
With the lights out
And the curtains closed
A few bottles of wine
Are lying on the floor
I'm running out of cigarettes
While I'm lying here in bed, thinking about you.

I wanna get back home to you
We'll listen to some records
I'll even let you choose
We'll have some laughs and drinks
Because the wine tastes better, when I'm with you.

I have no idea at all if it's day or night
I wrote so many words in my notebook
And tore them out
I wrote down all of the reasons
Why you're not here with me
But none of them make sense
No nothing makes sense to me anymore.

I wanna get back home to you
We'll listen to some records
I'll even let you choose
We'll have some laughs and drinks
Because the wine tastes better, when I'm with you.

I wanna get back home to you
We'll listen to some records
I'll even let you choose
We'll have some laughs and drinks
Because the wine tastes so much better, when I'm with you.
