Lyrics

My friend drove off the other day
Now he's gone and all they say
Is you gotta live cuz life goes on		(Verse 1)
Now I see I'm mortal too
I can't live my life like you
Gotta live it up while life goes on

And I think it's alright
That I do what I like
Cuz that's the way I wanna live			(Chorus)
So I give
And I'm still givin

Now I wonder about my friend
If he gave all he could give
Did he live his life like I live mine?		(Verse 2)
If you could see inside my head
Then you'd start to understand
The things I value in my heart

(Chorus)

You know that
I know that					(Bridge)
You're watching me

(Solo)
(Chorus)

Gotta make a plan
Gotta do what's right
Can't run around in circles
If you wanna build a life			(Outro)
But I don't wanna make a plan
For a day far away
While I'm young and while I'm able
All I wanna do is.....

About the artist behind J A R:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
