Suburbia Lyrics - Butch Walker

Review The Song (0)



Oh! Well, remember the guy who was a football star?
He had it made with the ladies but he never got far.
Five years past, now he's gotten kind of fat,
working eight days a week at the Laundromat.
With his Momma and his Daddy breathing down his neck,
about everything he does so much it makes him sick.
So he sits home alone, with the game on TV,
as the crowd goes wild he says, "That coulda been me!"

Just another day in Suburbia, it's a beautiful day in Suburbia.
Best not let it get the best of you.
Is it everything you thought it would be?

Remember playing games at the rich kid's home?
His Dad owned a bank, while his mom was alone.
Everyday with the mailman, the trash man, lawn guy...
Kid didn't look a damn thing like his Dad (I knew why)
He grew up got a job making eighty grand a year
sponsored links
Had a wife and kid, all the guys call a queer
But his dad never knew, he was too blind to see
he said, "Guess it kinda ran in the family".

Just another day in Suburbia, it's a beautiful day in Suburbia
Best not let it get the best of you
Is it everything you thought it would be?

Remember the girl down the street with the kids
That used to come outside, but she never did?
(why?) 'Cause she was trying to hide the bruises where her old man beat her,
'cause he hit her in the face with an old space heater. (ow!)
and he came home drunk and tried to force sex on her
But he didn't see a 44 stuffed in the covers
So she waited 'til he came, he lie there naked
Before she blew his head off, she told him she'd been faking
all along, so long for everything you done wrong
Here's a bullet, go to hell, 'cause its where you belong!

Just another day in Suburbia, it's a beautiful day in Suburbia
Best not let it get the best of you
Is it everything you thought it would be?
Just another day in Suburbia, Yeah, this is how we're living in Suburbia
Best not let it get the best of you
Is it everything you want it to be?

No one understands it, no one comprehends it
Guess you had to be there, from the outside looking in.
So I put my Outkast record on,
turn up the volume 'cause I'm all alone and scream away.

Remember the cutest couple in the world
Ya know he was the punk and she was Daddy's little girl.
and graduation came and she wanted him to stay
he had bigger better dreams waiting out in L.A.
She cried and he cried as the plane flew away
She never, ever, wanted it to end this way.
Two years later she reads in the news,
he'd gone on to be a big star but nobody knew.
'cause he changed up his name but his heart stayed the same,
'cause every song he wrote, was about her, he claimed.
he never got to tell her 'cause he died that year,
from all of the coke, and the pills, and the beer,
and the whole world cried, but just for one day
'cause sooner or later, the pain goes away.

Just another day in Suburbia, it's a beautiful day in Suburbia
Best not let it get the best of you
Is it everything you thought it would be?
Just another day in Suburbia, Yeah, this is how we're living in Suburbia
Best not let it get the best of you
Is it everything you want it to be?

Just another day [repeat 6]
