Yellowcard Lyrics

7. Two Weeks From Twenty



Jimmy wasn't really popular
He had a couple of friends back home
And sooner or later they're all getting out 
So he had to join up alone
He was dreaming of the Ivy League 
Since he was only three feet tall
Get the hell out of Jersey 
And then he would never look back at all

And then you hear them say 
That miles away 
We lost another one 
That we sent with a gun
They're gonna miss him, he was 2 weeks from 20 
And there's still no shame 
From the man to blame

Jimmy never had a reason to stay 
Because all the factories shut down
All he had was a line for his name 
So he could sign away his right to be proud
He tried to kiss her on the way out the door 
She just put her little hand on his face
I don't understand why you're leaving, she said 
But I hope you're gonna ask me to wait

And then you hear them say 
That miles away 
We lost another one 
That we sent with a gun
His lady missed him, he was 2 weeks from 20 
And there's still no shame 
From the man to blame

Jimmy's mother went to Capitol Hill 
So she could fill her heart up with joy
Maybe shake a few hands while she's there 
And tell him, thank you sir for taking my boy

And then you hear them say 
That miles away 
We lost another one 
That we sent with a gun
His mama missed him, he was 2 weeks from 20 
And there's still no shame 
From the man to blame 
No there's still no shame 
And we're all to blame 

We're all to blame 
We're all to blame 
We're all to blame 
We're all to blame
