  • I remember like yesterday
    You had a dream in your eyes
    And a smile on your face
    And I'm missing those days again
    Yeah I'm missing those days again

    And I forgot what really got in the way
    Maybe the sun it wouldn't shine
    Should be taking the blame
    'Cause its raining on my again
    Yeah its raining on me again

    A paradox
    The key drops
    I'm at it fast
    But what you lost was me
    For my sake please

    Stop slowing me down
    Stop holding me up
    We're making a scene
    And that's enough
    Let's be honest
    Your promise
    Was never meant to last

    I'm taking you on
    I'm calling you out
    There's nothing left
    For us here now
    Let's be honest
    I promise
    I'm never looking back
    For my sake
    For my sake

    Tell my something that's poetic at best
    Make me believe there was a time that you were like the rest
    And I'll never ask you again
    And I'll never ask you again

    For all the moments in the memories
    No one could ever say we never had a history
    But I'm leaving that all behind
    And there's nothing gonna change my mind

    A paradox
    The key drops
    I'm at it fast
    But what you lost was me
    For my sake please

    Stop slowing me down
    Stop holding me up
    We're making a scene
    And that's enough
    Let's be honest
    Your promise
    Was never meant to last

    I'm taking you on
    I'm calling you out
    There's nothing left
    For us here now
    Let's be honest
    I promise
    I'm never looking back
    For my sake
    For my sake

    A paradox
    The key you dropped
    I'm at it fast
    But what you lost was me
    For my sake please

    Stop slowing me down
    Stop holding me up
    Stop slowing me down
    And that's enough

    Stop slowing me down
    Stop holding me up
    We're making a scene
    And that's enough
    Let's be honest
    Your promise
    Was never meant to last

    I'm taking you on
    I'm calling you out
    There's nothing left
    For us here now
    Let's be honest
    I promise
    I'm never looking back
    For my sake

    I'm never looking back
    For my sake (for my sake)
