Green Day J.A.R. Lyrics

Last updated: 06/20/2012 11:00:00 AM

My friend drove off the other day,
Now he's gone and all they say,
Is you got to live 'cause life goes on...

But now I see I'm mortal, too,
I can't live my life like you,
Got to live it up, while life goes on.

And I think it's all right,
That I do what I like,
'Cause that's the way I want to live.
it's how I give, and I'm still givin'...

And now I wonder 'bout my friend,
If he gave all he could give,
'Cause he lived his life like I live mine.

If you could see inside my head,
Then you'd start to understand,
The things I value in my heart.

And I think it's all right,
That I do what I like,
'Cause that's the way I want to live.
it's how I give, and I'm still givin'...

You know that...
I know that...
You're watchin' me!

And I think it's all right,
That I do what I like,
'Cause that's the way I wanna live.
it's how I give, and I'm still givin'...

Got to make a plan,
Got to do what's right,
Can't run around in circles,
If you wanna build a life,
But I don't want to make a plan,
For a day far away,
While I'm young and while I'm able,
All I want to do is...

Thanks to Catherine for submitting J.A.R. Lyrics.

Great song | Reviewer: Riaan | 6/20/12

This is one of my favourite Green Day songs. Such a catchy, yet poignant tune about Mike's best friend, who had passed away. I love the original version but I'm glad the band included the song on the live album "Awesome as F**k".

Your song | Reviewer: Lian | 6/1/07

it's fantastic,i'm very like this song because all your song are the Best

Mike's song | Reviewer: Alex | 4/29/07

The only song completely written by Bass player Mike Dirnt, apart from amusingly paranoid 'Nobody Like You' section from 'Homecoming', which is too bad, i really like the open ending.
