  • Woo ooh, woo ooh, woo ooh
    Woo ooh, woo ooh, woo ooh

    Once upon a time, it was paradise
    Once upon a time, I was paralyzed
    Think I'm gonna miss these harbor lights
    But it's time to let it go
    Once upon a time, it was made for us
    Woke up one day, it had turned to dust
    Baby, we were found, but now we're lost
    So it's time to let it go

    I want my house in the hills
    Don't want the whiskey and pills
    I don't give up easily
    But I don't think I'm down

    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away

    Once upon a time, it was paradise
    Once upon a time, I was paralyzed
    Think I'm gonna miss these harbor lights
    But it's time to let it go
    Once upon a time, it was made for us (For us)
    Woke up one day, it had turned to dust
    Baby, we were found, but now we're lost
    So it's time to let it go

    Move on, we're not 17
    I'm not who I used to be
    You say that everything changed
    You're right, we're grown now

    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
    So won't you slide away
    Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away

    Move on, we're not 17
    I'm not who I used to be
    You say that everything changed
    You're right, we're grown now Writer/s: Alma Miettinen, Andrew Wyatt, Miley Cyrus
