Boys Like Girls' self-titled, debut album is marking its 10 year anniversary this year with a headlining U.S. tour, which we are more than excited about. They'll be performing the album in full, so we wanted to make sure you're ready for the show. Here are the best Boys Like Girls lyrics that you'll want to sing at the top of the lungs when you catch them on tour this summer.

The Great Escape

“We'll scream loud at the top of our lungs / And they'll think it's just 'cause we're young / But we'll feel so alive”
“Great Escape” is the ultimate jam. Boys Like Girls will have you on your feet dancing in no time with this summer-ready anthem.

Five Minutes to Midnight

“I think we should strike a match / We'll hold it to the wind to and see how long it lasts / We can make the time stand still”
This track is a reminder you that sometimes you have to leave all your worries behind and enjoy yourself. Really, there's no better place to do that than at a show.


“I never thought you could break me apart”
Relationships aren't always easy, and these lyrics remind us just how hard it is when it falls apart. We're keeping our fingers crossed that they'll play this tune acoustically.

On Top of the World

“I swear that I will see you someday / I have to find a way to show you I care / even if you're not there”
This song acts as a reminder that we can do anything and be anything. Nothing's a better reminder than that.


“Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors / I don't ever want to love another / You'll always be my thunder”
There's something special about first love, and this song highlights just how great it can be.

Me, You and My Medication

“I feel like the stars are getting closer and the sky is closing in / And I don't know where to begin”
This is the song to blare when you're looking for something to take the pain away. In this case, the music is the best medication. 

Up Against The Wall

“Who said that it's better to have loved than lost / I wish that I had never loved at all”
Heartbreak isn't easy, and this is the perfect track for you to let it all out.

Dance Hall Drug

“Don't it feel like something's not right in his kiss tonight?”
Just like a drug, this is an addicting tune that you'll want to keep on repeat.

Learning to Fall

“You change your clothes and your hair / But I can't change your mind”
This song perfectly sums up those “that should be me” feelings.

Heels Over Head

“I'm the first to fall and the last to know / Where'd you go?”
The video for this song is enough to get you hyped—Boys Like Girls know how to put on a show and bring you to your feet.

Broken Man

“I need to start to be myself / 'Cause I'm sick of everybody else”
It's hard to stand up when the world is pushing you down. This is a track that's meant to be screamed at the top of your lungs—fighting back the negativity while you're at it.


“I've broken too many hearts / and I don't have any clue where to go / I don't know / But maybe I'll get back someday after my holiday”
This song is all about finding yourself, and there's nothing better than singing it out with thousands of other fans to help you realize that you're on the right track.
