Lyrics for Ten Minutes by The Get Up Kids:

Verse 1
Ten minutes to downtown
Is ten minutes too far
When my friends all say I'm crazy
Maybe I'm being selfish
(Maybe I'm being selfish)
Maybe I'm just scared
(Maybe I'm just scared)
Don't be gone when I get home
I need you there

Pre-Chorus
If I had to explain it
I wouldn't know where to start
It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

Verse 2
Ten minutes to downtown
Is ten minutes too far
When my heart is saying, "You're crazy."
Maybe things are getting better
(Maybe things are getting better)
Maybe things aren't so bad
(Maybe things aren't so bad)
Don't be gone when I get home
You're all I have

Pre-Chorus
If I had to explain it
I wouldn't know where to start
It's like you're falling in love while I just fall apart

Chorus
Pockets empty
How can you tell me that everything will work out?
A pointless fight when you're always right
And everything will work out
It works out

Bridge
Sometimes, I miss you more
Whenever I'm at home
I've been home all summer
Now, I'm leaving you alone

Chorus
Pockets empty
How can you tell me that everything will work out?
A pointless fight when you're always right
And everything will work out
Everything will work out
Everything will work out
