My heart aches for those drives
All those days, all those nights
You and I
And all else so nearby

Everything was so real
Fun, depression, desire
Our spirits
An unquellable fire

Who are we? Who are we?

We didn't know who we were
But we weren't afraid
To be whoever
We wanted to be

To be whoever we wanted
To be who we wanted

Verse 2
Remember the freedom to crumble?
When we were there for each others weakness?
Now we just stuff it down
There's just no time for it
Tick tick tick drown
This is it, this is it

Verse 3
The fear of losing you
The fear of memories and their control
I've feared growing old since I was young
I'm drowning in fear. Choking on my tongue.
