lyrics

Like a trapped spirit, my past haunts me
When we were weak, when we were free
Creeping through the window just so we
Could share our lives and share our dreams

These memories
Will die hard
My broken envy
Leaves myself scarred

This fixation
This fire I feel
This elation
It's not real

I loved and hated the havoc that was wreaked
Hearts on our sleeves that we stole just like thieves
Unlearning the rules we carved into the trees
Learning who we wanted to be

We were so green but nothing pristine
Falling apart together until we had to restart
Each moment piling up like omens
But all of those hours were cherished, were ours

These memories
Will die hard
My broken envy
Leaves myself scarred

This fixation
This fire I feel
This elation
It's not real

I was so relieved to get out
But it hurts so bad without
Whatever drove me away back then
I forget, I just want to be back in
