Sit down with an old friend Like time it never stopped
From the cradle to the coffin We drink until we drop
Yeah, we grew up on the same street Small town under the hill, yeah
But dreams get lost and buried down
Deep inside the soil there, yeah

All day all night Keep pressing rewind
All day all night I remember All day all night Keep pressing rewind
All day all night I remember 
We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street Looking back in the rear view mirror You know the view used to be much clearer But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears Yea tonight can we just hold on to those 18 years 18 years 
Some ran down the highway To chase away their ghosts
Some frozen in the same place This time inside their bones Remember throwing TVs off the overpass onto the tracks, yeah
But the trains roll on through the small towns and never looked back, and yeah

All day all night Keep pressing rewind
All day all night I remember All day all night Keep pressing rewind
All day, tell me do you remember 
We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street Looking back in the rear view mirror You know the view used to be much clearer But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears Yea tonight can we just hold on to those 18 years 18 years yeah

Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on (To those 18 years)
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
18 years, 18 years, yeah

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street We were building a bridge Out of broken dreams
We were crashing like cars
When we were 18

We were young, we were wild
We were halfway free
We were kids on the run
On a dead-end street Looking back in the rear view mirror You know the view used to be much clearer But we'll laugh and we'll cry
Till there's no more tears Yea tonight, can we just hold on to those 18 years 
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on (Oh yeah, those 18 years)
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
Can we just hold on?
Oh those 18 years
