Good Times by All Time Low

What do you think?

In an interview  with Billboard, Alex Gaskarth from the band All Time Low described the message of their song “Good Times” as “Always be exactly who you are, and don’t live in fear of someone else’s judgment. Be brave, be bold, and find your happiness in yourself and the ones you love.”

He says ” ‘Good Times’ as a song always felt like it was paying homage to the past, and it felt very nostalgic. We always sort of felt it was a bit of a graduation song, so to speak. So that kind of crosses the video, as far as setting it in the high school years of these kids that you see in the video. A big part of that had to do with those moments of graduating are constant throughout life and that’s really what the song reflects.”

Lyrics

On a fault line, late night
Underneath the stars we came alive
And singing to the sky just felt right
I won’t forget the good times
While the punks started picking fights
With the skater kids under city lights
Remember how we laughed ’til we cried
I won’t forget the good times
I never want to leave this sunset town
But one day the time may come
And I’ll take you at your word
And carry on
I’ll hate the goodbye
But I won’t forget the good times
I won’t forget the good times
We were bare-knuckled, tight lip
Middle fingers up, ego trip
Devil may care but we didn’t mind
I won’t forget the good times
We’re the boys in black smoking cigarettes
Chasing girls who didn’t know love yet
As the bonfire moon came down
I won’t forget the good times
 
 
I never want to leave this sunset town
But one day the time may come
And I’ll take you at your word
And carry on
I’ll hate the goodbye
But I won’t forget the good times
I won’t forget the good times
When we laughed
When we cried
Those were the days
We owned the nights
Locked away
Lost in time
I found the nerve
To say that
I never want to leave this sunset town
But one day the time may come
And I’ll take you at your word
And carry on
I’ll hate the goodbye
But I won’t forget the good times
I won’t forget the good times
I never want to leave this sunset town
But one day the time may come
And I’ll take you at your word
And carry on
I’ll hate the goodbye
But I won’t forget the good times
I won’t forget the good times
