  • We knew it all from a little thing
    It was everything in our first minute
    And it took us to another place
    Yeah another place and we fell in it
    How dare you not remember
    How dare you walk away
    We adored every little thing
    Every little thing would leave us breathless
    Every dawn spelled another day
    And in another day we weren't so restless
    How dare you not remember
    How dare you walk away

    And I wanted you so much
    Just like I do right now
    I wanted us to be the one
    The poets write their books about
    I wanted it to last
    I wanted to grow old
    But life got in the way

    We walked around in a heavy haze
    We were stuck in days of so much warring
    We got lost in a tricky maze
    Yeah a tricky maze that was so scarring
    How come you can't remember
    How dare you walk away
    Then you start to add the little things
    Add the little things and trip the mighty
    Now we got a little bitter thing
    A little bitter thing that grew like ivy
    And how dare you not remember
    How dare you walk away


    And apathy grows quietly where rapture used to fly
    And promises and certainty have left love here to die
    Won't you stay and don't let this one fall away

    [Chorus: x2]
