  • I used to memorize you
    We'd stay in bed all day
    I used to lose my mind
    When u whispered my name

    Used to get lost in the songs that I used to sing
    Used to get caught in the rush
    Used to burn so bright
    Used to spend the night
    And used to never get enough

    We used to laugh so easy
    We used to give 'em hell
    You end up killing all the best parts, baby
    Trying to protect yourself

    Used to get lost in the songs that I used to sing
    Used to get caught in the rush
    I used to burn so bright
    Used to fill the sky
    And used to never get enough

    Before the world slammed us shut
    Before we knew way too much
    Didn't worry about what we didn't understand
    Swam out so far didn't see land
    Before the brain got involved
    When it was heart and that's all
    Close your eyes and try to remember
    When we were beginners

    It's all imagination
    Most things are just pretend
    Meet me in San Francisco
    We can dream it up again

    Used to get lost in the songs that I used to sing
    Used to get caught in the rush
    Used to burn so bright
    Used to fill the sky
    I used to never get enough

    Before the world slammed us shut
    Before we knew way too much
    We didn't worry about what we didn't understand
    Swam out so far didn't see land
    Before the brain got involved
    When it was heart and that's all
    Close your eyes and try to remember
    When we were beginners
