A
Paper bags and plastic hearts
A/G#
All our belongings in shopping carts
           C#m 
It's goodbye
     A
But we got one more night
E
Let's get drunk and ride around
B
And make peace with an empty town
C#m                 A
We can make it right

Chorus:
          C#m
Throw it away
             A
Forget yesterday
               E        B
We'll make the great escape
                C#m       A
We won't hear a word they say
                   E    B
They don't know us anyway
          F#m
Watch it burn
          G#m
Let it die
       A                B         A A/G# (x2)  
Cause we are finally free tonight


A
Tonight will change our lives
A/G#
It's so good to be by your side
           C#m 
But we'll cry
      A
We won't give up the fight
E
We'll scream loud at the top of our lungs
B
And they'll think it's just cause we're young
    C#m              A
And we'll feel so alive

Chorus:
          C#m
Throw it away
             A
Forget yesterday
               E        B
We'll make the great escape
                C#m       A
We won't hear a word they say
                   E    B
They don't know us anyway
          F#m
Watch it burn
          G#m
Let it die
       A                B         A A/G# (x2)  
Cause we are finally free tonight


A
All of the wasted time
    G#m
The hours that were left behind me
F#m
Answers that we'll never find
A                         B  
They don't mean a thing tonight

They don't know us anyway
