lyrics

Remember when we pulled off
up over Mulholland for a laugh
the wild side came easy
we couldn't keep our clothes from hitting the dash
but when we take the freeway
we're guaranteed at least an hour and a half
I say we take the canyon
even if we never make it back

Remember when we forced it
and you said you would try anything twice
old in and out the back room
dive head over heels into this life
but that was just the first itch
still looking for the scratch they talked about
yeah we'll find it in the canyons
even if we never make it out

The price is worth the parole
Twenty to life i'm told
Once in the canyons they know
No regrets when we're old

Remember when we lost it
blowing through the guard rails off the tracks
yeah the wild side came easy
we couldn't keep our clothes from hitting the dash
but passed where city lights go
we fell into the dark beneath the cracks
we lost it in the canyons
and we can never get it back

The price is worth the parole
Twenty to life i'm told
Once in the canyons they'll know
No regrets till we're old

When we were laying on the grass to brag of our insights
that the city gets as dark as you will go inside
just go tell your roommate that you won't be home tonight

The price is worth the parole
No regrets till we're old
Once in the canyons they know
No regrets when we're old
