  • And it goes 3, 2, done
    We always knew that you were the wild one
    Oh, oh

    But you too flew too close to a burning sun
    At least we got it in when we were young
    I know

    It still feels like yesterday
    I'll love you, always

    Do you remember back in the day
    That party at Dave's?
    You said that you had nothing to lose
    Oh, no

    Then I should've listened up, but I fucked up
    Laughed it off, and told you you had nothing to prove
    (Had nothing to prove)
    Oh, oh

    It still feels like yesterday
    I'll love you, always

    And I promise, I'll see you
    On the other side
    We'll get high, and go out
    For another ride

    I promise
    I'll see you
    On the other side

    Still feels like yesterday
    I'll love you, always

    And when my time's up
    I'll come over and
    Sing you a song
    Punch your shoulder
    'Cause I'll love you, always

    I promise, I'll see you
    On the other side
    We'll get high, and go out
    For another ride

    I promise, I'll see you
    On the other side

    We'll get stoned
    We'll get drunk
    We'll get by Writer/s: Joel Alexander Hamilton, John Michael Stevens, Richard Charles Meyer Jr, Ryan Meyer
