I want to be the new James Dean
And you’re my Marilyn
We’re the best damn thing
They’ve ever seen

I’ve got a little luck on my side
These days I’m a new man
I don’t run and hide
You know, the way I used to

I can tell the wrong from right
Except when I don’t want to
It seems every night
I end up thinking about you

Another night in the here and now
And it’s slow and you’re closer
I’m saving up my memories
‘Cause someday it’ll all be over

Another lie where I tell myself
That it goes and I’m too kind
Staying up, it never leaves
The back of my worried mind

Wait ’til I get my money right
First thing, we’re out of here
I know this shit’s been hard
But we’ll make it through this year
Why wait for this life to pass us by?
Even good things
Happen to losers like us
Sometimes

I wanna be the new James Dean
Or at least a someone different
Anybody but me

I’ve got a little light on the way
These days I’m a new man
If I can make you stay
I swear I’ll change

Never made sense to be like this
But now here I stand
I know it’s getting late
But please don’t fade 

Another night in the here and now
And it’s slow and you’re closer
I’m saving up my memories
‘Cause someday it’ll all be over

Another lie where I tell myself
That it goes and I’m too kind
Staying up, it never leaves
The back of my worried mind

I don’t mind wasting time
If you want we could talk about it
Talk about it
