  • Two sides to three stories
    Never whine and forget about it this time
    If you want what you've already got, look away
    Toughen up, Valentines Day wasn't meant for my kind anyway
    There's no leaving a forever thing, so look away

    Take me out to the lake, break it down and dive into our mistakes
    Take me in to the fire, it's just us even for a little while
    There's nothing to say, look away

    At Seventeen your hair was gold
    You bet me once we never get this old
    Nobody tells you that you might one day, look away
    Through the door I can see the light
    I'm not surprised he's always been a good guy
    It's a game that we both learned how to play, look away

    Take me out to the lake, break it down and dive into our mistakes
    Take me in to the fire, it's just us even for a little while
    There's nothing to say, look away

    Can your first still be your last?
    A little bit of shame and a mountain of a past
    Nobody wrote the perfect book on a life without a second look
    I won't close the door with all this rain if there's nobody to blame

    Take me out to the lake, break it down and dive into our mistakes
    Take me in to the fire, it's just us and for a little while, there is nothing to say

    Toughen up, Valentines Day wasn't meant for our kind anyway
    If you want what you've already got, look away
    Look away [x4] Writer/s: Amy E Millan, Christopher Alexander McCarron, Christopher Allen Seligman, Evan Whitney Cranley, Patrick McGee, Torquil John Campbell
