Airborne Toxic Event, The - Gasoline Lyrics

..Five, six, seven, eight!

All the time I wake
You're still on my mind
We were on our own
Almost all the time

And she'll step away
For a second or two
And I close my eyes
And I think of you

We were only seventeen
We were holding in our screams
Like we'd torn it from the pages of some lipstick magazine
And you'd scratch and turn
And say, "let's burn ourselves up 'til we scream"
Like gasoline

All those tender days
At your mother's house
And your father would find my hand inside your blouse

They tell me that
You're married now
Well, my dear, I fear I can't understand how

When we were only seventeen
We were holding back our screams
Like we'd torn our lives from the pages of some girlie magazines
And you'd scratch and turn
And say, "let's burn these sheets down to the seams"
Like gasoline

I was only twenty one
I wasn't having any fun
And the words you said tore through my head
Like bullets from a gun
And I should have just shown up and said,
"Get in this car, let's run"

And these years have seen so many imitations turning green
Each like the last, they go right past like credits on a screen
But your memory blazes through me
Burning everything
Like gasoline
Like gasoline
Like gasoline

    Cadê os BRs lembrando do FIFA 09?

    Carlos Mello

    Opaaa!!! nossa cara como eu amava esse jogo, foi o primeiro q joguei eu era muito viciado nesse jogo kkkkkk, lembro q só eu entre meus primos q jogava e eles jogavam bomba patch eles falavam q o fifa era ruim e eu falava q o bomba patch q era kkkk, eles se achavam no bomba patch e eu n enfrentava eles, n gostava de jogar bomba patch, quando eles me desafiavam pra jogar no fifa09 e eu era viciado de mais só goleava eles kkkkk, era tão bom esse tempo:(.

    Yuri Renato

    Kkkkkkkkk! Aquele FIFA de Ps2 era ruim de doer, mas as músicas eram boas demais! Só jogava por causa da trilha sonora.

    Carlos Mello

    Eu sempre gostei + de FIFA desde essa época kkk, e q na era ps2 o pes se destacava pq os games árcades ainda estavam em alta, o FIFA sempre foi realista desde dessa época por isso eu gostava +. 

  27. Pablo Lopez

    DAMN FIFA, i are crying :(

  28. Kailey Nadon

    I saw them this past weekend at Riot Fest in Toronto. They were great

  29. Carina Banks

    IMO this is ATE's greatest song ever. I rode my bike around town to it before I ever saw the video. Perfect

  30. K. Luma

    Band Hero <3

    Bear McBear MC

  31. Mauricio Mariano

    FIFA 09!

  32. Kyo Kusinagi

    I would like to see this video with Swing choreography.


    Oooho, everytime he looks to the side and says "like gasoline," I can't help but shiver. The music, and especially the video are so freaking awesome :)

  34. Prophecy Jones

    love, love, LOVE this!

  35. Ade Thomas

    One of the best FIFA songs!

  36. ian hernandez

    Anna Bulbrook
    2:44 - 2:47 3:13 - 3:16

  37. ☾daisy

    This is filmed in all of the places me and my ex hanged out in. which makes this song even more bitter sweet.

  38. josue aguilar

    yo vivo serca de todos los lugares donde los filmaron.

  39. Mr. Swirly

    Soooo good.

  40. Comp

    FIFA 09 

  41. smurfyday

    FIFA... back when it picked great songs.


    Still do, if nothing else. Even FIFA 16 (the worst one IMO) had a brilliant playlist

  42. LeanGDN

    Yo los conosco por el FIFA09

  43. Valamyr

    Musical tastes evolve alot. I'm 31 and I hate the music I loved at 21, nothing to do with my father. Maybe he'll like it someday.

  44. dimitri shevko

    this makes me think of kazan

  45. quickcut24

    If it makes you feel any better my dad is over 50 and likes this band. I'm his 21 year-old son and I still think they're awesome. Would see them live if they played a show in my area.

  46. joel mason

    If you like this, you'll probably like bring it on by the gaslight anthem

  47. Austen Hibler

    Why does my 60+ year old father not like this band - is it because his 21 year old son does?

  48. Joel Alvarez

    That's cool where'd you seem them live?

  49. guitarheromorello

    Band Hero brought me here.

  50. guitarheromorello

    I liked that song as well, but too bad that blouse and gun were censored in it because it was E rated.

  51. iheartparamoresomuch

    I don't understand how this band isn't very popular..They are very good.

  52. Kyle Hadley

    I have loved this band since i was like, 11 or 12, four years listening and i wont stop soon!

  53. Ysarc

    Same thing with me and Opera,i just can't stand it.Might be because my father is acting like it's the best type of music and dismisses everything else as noise.I always poke fun at him when he tries to convince me to listen to some when he won't ever listen to the bands i like.

  54. Steven Bynion

    wanna see them ;_0

  55. ChildOfTheSun32

    Hah that's crazy.. An older guy with good taste in music has a far more reputable opinion... Since he's heard more and knows when it's "just the same old shit" for a younger generation or not.

  56. DSly13

    I'm 17 and loved this band sense my step dad showed me there first album 2 years ago. I just saw them live for the 2nd time tonight actually they put on one hell of a show!

  57. CharlemagneTV

    Just saw them in Orlando, FL! Such an amazing show, they opened up with this song :D

  58. Jenifer Strickland

    I'm 24 and I have been in love with them since 20 . So your son is missing out on something.

  59. OmnomnomNOJUTSU

    Oh God SO happy these guys are going to be in Canada next month XDDDD

  63. Stuart Davis

    Fuuuuck i remember this from fifa 09 but i never thought it would be airbourn that done it, so then in my opinion i think u only have got 2 great tunes which is defo this and my favourite tune ever before any other song in the world has to be all i wanted

  64. Misuri9
