AFI - Where We Used To Play Lyrics

I might seem a bit peculiar
A bit not right
for though I try, I remain a stranger - not of this time.

I swear I'm almost there
though I've been wandering for days.
I may be chasing ghost trains hoping they'll arrive
where we used to play.
I may be hopping ghost trains for they terminate
where we used to play in those days.

I know I'm with strangers I recognize and I realize my own disowned me. Were never mind.

I swear I'm almost there.

This is right where we used to play.

I may be chasing ghost trains hoping they'll arrive
where we used to play.
I may be hopping ghost trains for they terminate
where we used to play in those days.

I never will let it go until I find the place I called mine.
I never was truly meant for this time.

  17. thatscalledyes

    I'll be honest, I hated this album when it first came out but now that I listen to the album again a few years later, I'm starting to like it a lot better. I don't know if it's because I've matured or what but I used to hate Beautiful Thieves and now I love it, along with a lot of the songs on this album, including this one

  18. thoms667

    They're used to doing sh*t, since 2006.

  22. Atolocus35

    epic song, love it

  23. Sara R

    I feel like my life could quickly be turned into a terribly addictive fanfiction.

  24. Sara R

    But then why does this song exist? What was I really doing when I thought I was listening to Coldplay? Was I still repeating this song? Was I just sitting in silence, making up my own song? Maybe I was listening to this song, but backwards. Oh, the possibilities of my sanity.

  25. Sara R

    Man, trust me, I'm quite familiar with the google trick. I WISH I could remember anything of that song. I've also tried to listen to every track I can get my hands on, still without any luck. I can't even remember the emotion of the song or the basic premise. It's like it was an episode of Twilight Zone or something. I bet the song doesn't even exist anymore. hahah .

  26. Sara R

    One day, I listened to this song and an amazing Coldplay song over and over and over again from the time I woke up till I passed out.

    I have no idea what that cold play song was.
    I'm still searching.
