  • Mm

    I keep the letters that you wrote in a secret place
    Every now and then, I go down memory lane
    October passed me by just like any month
    But I still think of the times you took the breath out of my

    You don't have to run, mm

    Yeah, I got bitter when you got cold
    And could you really blame me though?
    'Cause I'm still tied up when you go
    You know this song is about you
    Who else could it be?
    You were the first to make me

    Feel like I was me
    Just a memory

    It wasn't all good, yeah, it wasn't all pretty
    Lost our grip while tryna go steady
    Holding on to you like, maybe, one day we'll meet

    I met you at the wrong time, didn't wanna see
    I was busy with the stars, you were looking at me
    For better or for worse, I don't know, but for what it's worth

    I made you my whole world
    I made you my whole world
    Screaming at the top of my lungs, I love you, my girl
    Always in the back of my mind, you'll be my girl Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Marie Ulven Ringheim
