lyrics

Things had been going well for like, a couple of years
And you still made me feel light headed like a couple of beers
No fuss, no tears, I mean it was so clear
And now Ii'm in a mess, saying this stuff that you won't hear.
But I'm just saying what's left, maybe I'm wasting my breath,
Nevertheless, let's get this off of my chest
I never thought that you would ever desert me
And maybe that's the reason why you thought this ain't working-
Out, how now could I ever survive?
You cut me off and left me dying for a place in your life
That ain't right, now I'm second guessing all that I do
Don't wanna talk to no one else cos' none of them could be you
I guess it's true though, in hindsight - we couldn't be right
Towards the end, the signs were there - I never saw you most nights
I can't swallow this, I'm gonna choke
You said you're feeling happy now, I still ain't got the joke
I just hope you remember.

[Hook]
Remember all of the times I said I loved you,
Cos' you felt stronger before you were broke in two
And now something ain't right, cos' you ain't with me at night and it's like -
I gave you my world, I designed our lives ahead of you,
Cos' you felt stronger before we were broke in two

After debris settles and the dust gets swept off,
Maybe we can pick it up from where we left off
Back when we spoke cos' I can't just get lost
There's movies playing in my head, our personal best of
Partly I believe you'll realise you messed up
When that happens, I wish I could tell you to get fucked
But that'll be hard cos' I ain't got hate for you
Part of me partially thinks I could've been made for you
I thought I had it planned, I thought I had it all lined up
Cos' everybody's got their gem, I thought I had mine cut
You said "time's up, it's too late to change me"
I thought this was for real, but how you felt was fougaisie
And lately, I think maybe it's cos' I took you for granted,
I took advantage, cos' of the way we started
Cos' most guys would've run for cover
when you said 'the L word,' I said it back cos' I loved ya,
I still remember.

[Hook]
Remember all of the times I said I loved you,
Cos' you felt stronger before you were broke in two
And now something ain't right, cos' you ain't with me at night and it's like -
I gave you my world, I designed our lives ahead of you,
Cos' you felt stronger before we were broke in two

Ii used to be the nice guy, the right guy,
The firefly in your night sky, now my light's died I'm like - why?
You couldn't answer so I'll never know, ever
But i have to let it burn to Usher in a new era
So I've been deleting all your pictures off my Facebook
Ones of you, ones of us and ones of me that you took
This dude was shook but fuck that, I'm moving on
Now I'm using this song as the method to prove you wrong
It's been months since you left, I'm trying to guess what you're up to
That letter that I sent and several texts couldn't touch you
I'm feeling fine now, when I see you will be my next test
All these weak groups and we were one of the best
Now this stone has lost its moss, so I have to let it be
I'll whisper words of wisdom then I guess I'll let it be
So I can put this shit to bed like a slut that I'll probably fuck
Whatever, I'm better off, it's your loss - best of luck

[Hook]
Remember all of the times I said I loved you,
Cos' you felt stronger before you were broke in two
And now something ain't right, cos' you ain't with me at night and it's like -
I gave you my world, I designed our lives ahead of you,
Cos' you felt stronger before we were broke in two
And now I don't know what to do, cos' we're broke in two
