The Get Up Kids

The Get Up Kids are an American alternative rock band from Kansas City, Missouri. Formed in 1995, the band was a major player in the mid-90's emo scene, otherwise known as the "second wave" of emo music. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe. They founded Heroes & Villains Records, an imprint of the successful indie rock label Vagrant Records. While the imprint was started to release albums by The Get Up Kids, it served as a launching pad for several side-projects such as The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect. more »

This is the closest 
To this friend that I've been
I hope you find it 
On greener ground and bluer skies

I hope you don't think less of me
If I'm cold 
I don't want to watch you go
I'll cry 
Until I can't see the whites of your eyes 
For two more years (two more years)
We'll be 
Old enough to know better 
Young enough to pretend 
This is the last of my letters

I hope you find my home 
And I hope you're the first one in
I know it won't be the same
I'll be there if you need anything 
At all you want to be
Run around the world with me
State your distance but 
It's not a million miles away

If this is what will really make you happy
Then I'll say 
We'll be 
Old enough to know better, 
Young enough to pretend
This is the last of my letters
Until I see you again
