Jimmy Eat World

Jimmy Eat World - Big Casino

rate me

Before this world starts up again

It's me and night

We wait for the sun

The kids and drunks head back inside

Well there's lots of smart ideas

In books I've never read

When the girls come talk to me

I wish to hell I had

Get up, Get up

Turn my ignition

Get up, Get up

Fire up the system

Play my little part in something big

I'll accept with poise with grace

When they draw my name from the lottery

And they'll say all the salt in the world couldn't melt that ice

I'm the one who gets away

I'm a New Jersey success story

And they'll say Lord give me the chance to shake that hand

They'll say

Back when I was younger

I was someone you'd have liked

Got an old guitar I had for years i'd let you buy

And I'll tell you something else

That you ain't dying enough to know

There's still some livin' left when your prime comes and goes

Get up, Get up

Dance on the ceiling

Get up, Get up

Boy you must be dreaming

Rock on young savior

Don't give up your hopes

I'll accept with poise with grace

When they draw my name from the lottery

And they'll say all the salt in the world couldn't melt that ice

I'm the one who gets away

I'm a New Jersey success story

And they'll say Lord give me the chance to shake that hand

I have one last wish

And it's from the heart

Just let me down

Just let me down easy

I'll accept with poise with grace

When they draw my name from the lottery

And They'll say all the salt in the world couldn't melt that ice

I'm the one who gets away

I'm a New Jersey success story

And they'll say Lord give me the chance to shake "his" hand

They'll say
