Boys Like Girls — Holiday lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was younger I used to be wild,
As wild as an elephant's child.
No one could hold me down,
No one could keep me around.
Now it's your turn, take a shot.
Baby, show me everything that you got.
Maybe you can keep me alive,
Maybe you can get in my mind,
But it's only a matter of time.

[Chorus]
Before I run far away,
I need to take a holiday.
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.

[Verse 2]
My father, he was always wise,
As wise as an elephant's eyes.
He couldn't hold me down,
He couldn't keep me around.
So are you gonna take your shot?
It's the only one that you got.
Maybe I'll go out on limb,
Maybe I'll jump in for a swim
When the lights go dim.

[Chorus]
You know I'll run far away,
I need to take a holiday.
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.
(Need to take a holiday)

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

[Bridge]
I need a new start.
I've broken too many hearts,
And I don't have any clue where to go.
I don't know,
But maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday.

[Verse 3]
When I was younger I used to be wild,
As wild as an elephant's child,
And I don't think I'll ever change.
I think I'm gonna stay the same.

[Chorus]
I'll run away,
I need to take a holiday.
(Need to take a holiday)
Maybe it's a fall from grace,
I gotta find a new place,
A holiday,
I'll set off on a new chase,
(Set off on a new chase)
I gotta see a new face.
I need to take a holiday.

[Hook]
A new start,
I've broken too many hearts,
And I don't have any clue where to go.
I don't know,
And maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday.

[Outro]
All of the wasted time,
The hours that were left behind,
The answers that we'll never find,
And they don't mean a thing tonight.
