  • I miss the days when we were young and not too wise
    Only doing what felt right
    With open hearts and open eyes
    I miss the days before I second guessed my life
    Wasn't always asking why
    I remember what it's like

    Maybe it's just too late for the old me
    Maybe there's no point in holding onto something closely
    I should let it go, I should let it fade
    'Cause nothing last forever and nothing stays the same

    Why do we complicate it?
    Why do we get so jaded?
    Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back?)
    Why do we ruin our dreams?
    Why do we sabotage things?
    Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back?)
    To 2011

    I miss the days when we can live outside our heads
    Before we were all nervous wrecks
    That's the thing about regret
    We used to talk about our lives and all the things we didn't have
    We've fantasized about the future
    Now we dream about the past

    Maybe it's just too late for the old me
    Maybe there's no point in holding onto something closely
    I should let it go, I should let it fade
    'Cause nothing lasts forever and nothing stays the same

    Why do we complicate it?
    Why do we get so jaded?
    Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back?)
    Why do we ruin our dreams?
    Why do we sabotage things?
    Can we just go back, go back to 2011?
    To 2011

    Back to the days when the days were better
    Back to the days when the days were better
    Back to the days when the days were better
    Back to the days when the days were better

    Back to the days when the days were better
    (Back to the days when the days were better)
    Back to the days when the days were better
    (Back to the days when the days were better)
    Back to the days when the days were better
    (Back to the days when the days were better)
    Back to the days when the days were better
    (Back to the days when the days were better) Writer/s: Calum Hood, Michael Clifford, Nicholas Long
