Gaslight Anthem, The - Teenage Rebellion Lyrics




And in the first year of my former life
I was seventeen and a wildfire burning
If I stretched out my hands I was convinced I could conjure angels
And yeah I was pretty sure she was bulletproof
At least I never saw anybody ever get to you
You used to wonder all the time if you made it
to the point of a ritual,
to the point of a ritual

And I used to die every night
All in your honor
in your honor, oh in your honor
While you were gone
While you were gone

And in the last hours before the sunrise
I’m not sure if I passed out or closed my eyes
I woke into a dream where I know I knew
somebody had just got their claws in you
And your breath heaves in silent anythings
like a sub-conscious ritual

And I used to die every night
All in your honor
in your honor, oh in your honor
While you were gone
While you were gone

And if you’re gonna break my heart, it might as well be tonight
And if you’re gonna break my heart, it might as well be tonight

I used to die every sweet, sweet night
All in your honor
And I used to die every night
All in your honor
in your honor, oh in your honor
While you were gone
While you were gone
All in the throws of rebellion
In the throws of rebellion
In the throws of rebellion

  8. TohleJeDan

    Tin Pan Alley is a Brian Fallon's song

  9. achrisdc

    It's an original track by The GLA

  10. Ed Stark

    can't believe i never knew this track even existed, i've been playing it on the repeat for the last 10mins and on the verge of tears since the second play...

    Billy Prusinowski

    Um. Same. And it's 2019

  11. TohleJeDan

    Lot of Tin Pan Alley in the verses but who cares

  12. imstar69

    this amazing song should have been on the album. it is just phenomenal. Love handwritten already but this track would have made it guaranteed top 10 best albums of 2012. (Not that Handwritten isn't in the running, but this would have been the clincher)

  13. Frank Desiront

    yeah it's pretty damn stupid...releasing 10s of different packages. it smells like "label" issues...
    they have release different packages in the uk, german and usa... some came with prints, with special shirts, with a pendant, a photobook, some signed...etc etc etc...

    and then 3 different CD RELEASE
    regular one, deluxe package...and now noticed amazon had an extra track as well..

    VERY LAME
    why should hardcore fans really buy 3 different cds...
    i already bought the lp, and the cd..

  14. LAPPINGJIM

    lavly staff

  15. achrisdc

    It's an "Amazon Exclusive" Bonus Track

  16. Zavien99

    why wasnt this song on the general release.... its beyond amasing
