  • Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
    I drink too much and that's an issue, but I'm okay
    Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
    But I hope I never see them again

    I know it breaks your heart
    Moved to the city in a broke down car
    And four years, no calls
    Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar
    And I can't stop
    No, I can't stop

    So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
    That I know you can't afford
    Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
    Pull the sheets right off the corner
    Of the mattress that you stole
    From your roommate back in Boulder
    We ain't ever getting older

    (Down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car, down car, down car, down car)
    (Down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car, down car, down car, down car)

    You look as good as the day I met you
    I forget just why I left you, I was insane
    Stay and play that Blink-182 song
    That we beat to death in Tucson, okay

    I know it breaks your heart
    Moved to the city in a broke down car
    And four years, no call
    Now I'm looking pretty in a hotel bar
    And I can't stop
    No, I can't stop

    So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
    That I know you can't afford
    Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
    Pull the sheets right off the corner
    Of the mattress that you stole
    From your roommate back in Boulder
    We ain't ever getting older

    (Down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car, down car, down car, down car)
    (Down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car)
    (Moved to the city in a broke down car, down car, down car, down car)

    Baby, pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
    That I know you can't afford
    Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
    Pull the sheets right off the corner
    Of the mattress that you stole
    From your roommate back in Boulder
    We ain't ever getting older
    We ain't ever getting older
    No, we ain't ever getting older
    We ain't ever getting older
    No, we ain't ever getting older
    We ain't ever getting older
    We ain't ever getting older
    We ain't ever getting older
    No, we ain't ever getting older

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesThis is the "Closer" I'm talking about!

    I knew it it wasn't for Halsey ;-)

    I also think this is more like Friendship Song than a Lover song! from line
    "WE AIN'T NEVER GETTING OLDER"
    If you don't look in The video you will never know they are lovers hehehe :*
