  • I remember me, starting at myself
    See these same two eyes, see these same two feet
    I remember you, you who I used to be
    You still look the same, but you don't hurt like me
    Look at my reflection, somewhere my affection
    Disappeared, isn't here, nothing left to say
    Memories they fading, but I'm the one who makes them
    So I keep the love close to enough to say

    What if this life is all that we're given
    We just can't stop living, scared of what we'll see
    'Cause in this world, anything can hurt you
    Push you, then forget you
    Stole my history

    But I remember me, I remember me
    It don't matter where I go, what I'm told, now you know
    I remember me, I remember me
    Even if I say goodbye, start to cry, do or die
    I remember me, I remember me oh oh

    I tell you what my name is
    And ain't nothing gon' change it
    'Cause what you are is what you are
    Even if your memory's flawed
    I go to places, trying to find familiar faces
    They don't show, but I still know
    They don't have to look for me
    I dream about, I dream about
    The place where all the broken pieces fit together

    'Cause in this world, anything can hurt you
    And it push you, then forget you
    And stole my history

    But I remember me, I remember me
    It don't matter where I go, what I'm told, now you know
    I remember me, I remember me
    Even if I say goodbye, start to cry, do or die
    I remember me

    Now all that's left of these hands, this breathe
    I've said goodbye to so many things that tears wont cry
    And I take this pain, this joy, and rain
    'Cause all that matters now is
    In this life anything can hurt you
    Push you then forget
    Erase your history

    But I remember me, I remember me
    It don't matter where I go, what I'm told, now you know
    I remember me, I remember me
    Even if I say goodbye, start to cry, do or die
    I remember me

    I remember me, oh woah
    I remember me, I tell you what my name is
    I tell you what me name is
