  • I walk in on Friday nights
    Same old bar, same burned out lights
    Same people and all the same faces
    So why in the hell does it feel like a different place?

    Meet my friends for a girls' night out
    Seems there ain't much to talk about
    Same drinks that we're all raising
    But all of the toasts just don't feel the same

    We used to be the life of the party
    We used to be the ones that they wished they were
    But now it's like they don't know how to act
    Maybe they're like me and they want us back
    It's like there's always an empty space
    Those memories that nobody can erase
    Of how bright we burned
    Well now it hurts, but it's true
    When they think of me, they think of you

    They keep asking how I am
    But they're really asking where you've been
    I can read between all of the lines
    It ain't just us missing all of the times

    We were to be the life of the party
    We used to be the ones that they wished they were
    But now it's like they don't know how to act
    Maybe they're like me and they want us back
    It's like there's always an empty space
    Those memories that nobody can erase
    Of how bright we burned
    Well now it hurts, but it's true
    When they think of me, they think of you

    Ain't it funny how a flame like that
    Oh whoa, when they think of you
    It can burn when it's in the past

    We used to be the life of the party
    We used to be the ones that they wished they were
    But now it's like they don't know how to act
    Maybe they're like me and they want us back
    It's like there's always an empty space
    Those memories that nobody can erase
    Of how bright we burned
    Well now it hurts, but it's true
    When they think of me, they think of you

    Oh, they think of you
    When they think of me
    Baby, baby, oh
    When they think of me, they think of youWriter/s: Josh Hoge, Christopher Young, Corey Crowder
