And if I had to tell you one thing I’d tell you that I just can’t find the time to be anywhere but here And what took you so long? (Do you even still remember?) Last summer after college you said we’d be together But it’s been so long, can you even still remember now? And if I had to tell you one thing I’d tell you that I don’t believe (A single word, that slips out of your tongue) And it doesn’t even matter ‘cos lies aren’t meant for anyone Give me a second she said And it will all be okay For what it’s worth I’ve never been more sure (about anything) And what took you so long? (Do you even still remember?) Last summer after college you said we’d be together But it’s been so long, can you even still remember now? Now you’re gone, you’re never coming back (You know this better than I do) I should’ve seen this coming Now you’re gone, it’s now or never ‘cos (You know this better than I do) / I should have known Do you want this to end? Will I see you again? Darling, please don’t pretend like you don’t even give a damn What took you so long? Do you even still remember last summer after college, you said we’d be together? And I swear I thought you meant it, I did, I did And what took you so long? Do you even still remember last summer after college, you said we’d be together? And I swear I thought you meant it, I did, I did And what took you so long? Do you even still remember? Now you’re gone, you’re never coming back (You know this better than I do) I should’ve seen this coming Now you’re gone, it’s now or never ‘cos (You know this better than I do) I should have known Do you want this to end? Will I see you again? Darling, please don’t pretend like you don’t even give a damn

Send you up, one minute at your door step Shuffle up to a meeting with my tongue Going over never seemed like a problem Where we’re going, we’re going, we’re gone I see the way that you’re looking at me I could tell that everything came easy From the way you’re trying to say (From the way you’re trying to say) We’ll go all the way Oh it’s love (love) Call it what you want it Let’s go (go) We’ re back at where we started And I will never be this scared to say Love is what they call it these days Turn out the lights, we’re going in and out of It’s our show, it’s our time and this is how we roll (oh) And it’s the end of the world and it feels so good And all I wanna know, is are you ready to go? We’ll take it slow and show ‘em this is how we roll (oh oh oh oh oh) Let me hear you say, oh oh oh oh Oh it’s love (love) Call it what you want it Let’s go (go) We’re back at where we started And I will never be this scared to say (Love is what they call it, love is what they call it) Oh it’s love (love) Call it what you want it Let’s go (go) We’re back at where we started And I will never be this scared to say Love is what they call it these days Call it what you want, let’s go We’re back to where we started And if it’s love, that’s what you call it I’ll never dare to say to say this But I just think that we could make it Back to where we started We’re going all the way tonight We’ll never make it out alive so grab my hand You can call it what you want it ‘cos love is what they call it We’re going all the way tonight We’ll never make it out alive, so grab my hand You can call it what you want it ‘cos love Oh it’s love (love) Call it what you want it Let’s go (go) We’re back at where we started And I will never be this scared to say (I will never be this scared to say) Oh it’s love (love) Call it what you want it Let’s go (go) We’re back at where we started And I will never be this scared to say Love is what they call it these days

I have everything to be ashamed of A break from what we believe It’s not impossible Don’t let them tell you that it’s out of my league Yeah, we have everything to last forever More than what we could ever dream So make believe You’re everything to me We’re gonna turn this right back From where we once were, we could have gone so far Our dreams were real bizarre Come take the deck with me We’re gonna turn this right back, right back around Quit pretending (Pick yourself up) Don’t let this get to me (From the gallows) Don’t let this get away (Pick yourself up from the gallows) Let’s soldier on Quit pretending (Pick yourself up) Don’t let this get to me (From the gallows) Don’t let this get away (Pick yourself up from the gallows) Let’s soldier on Losing sleep for second chances We don’t need another ‘cos This ain’t the season for giving in Let’s turn this Let’s turn this around Let’s turn this around Let’s turn this around Quit pretending (Pick yourself up) Don’t let this get to me (From the gallows) Don’t let this get away (Pick yourself up from the gallows) Let’s soldier on Soldier on Another life lost

Slow down, this isn’t what you’re expecting to hear We are two of a kind and we’ve got all year To take this road that appears Pack our bags, get out of here ‘Cos I’m in love with you, with you I’m in love with you, with you Slow down, this isn’t what you’re expecting to hear We have different agendas and it’s unclear But I know what is real and what is wrong And I can’t let you take the wheel I am not in love, with you I am not in love with you, with you We made a promise and I swear I kept it So what is stopping you now? Know that I’m scared to death I don’t wanna lose you I’m scared I’ll let you down Scared I’ll let you down ‘Cos I’m in love with you, with you I am not in love with you, with you And I’ll be waiting for you to come back home Into my arms I will keep you safe, so please don’t go Can I change your mind? (I’ll watch you go) ‘Cos your heart’s telling mine (And I want you to know) To leave this all behind No I can’t, but I’ll try

I'll stop pretending like this isn't affecting me from Being who I'm supposed to be And it sickens me to know that you're still the one I think about when Things don't get easy Could you make this any clearer? (Get my two feet off the ground) Take me some place we both love Could you make this any clearer? (Get my two feet off the ground) To spend eternity (Just stay) Right where you are In the rearview of my heart Let’s take the wheel somewhere (Somewhere) far away from here Could you make this any clearer? (Get my two feet off the ground) Take me some place we both love Could you make this any clearer? To spend eternity Hush, stay, don't go Let's take this place over Hush, stay, don't go We’ll take this place over We're taking over Take this place over (The weight of the world) It's getting colder, don't leave me hanging 'Cos I'm sick of these formalities, formalities (So tell me can you take the weight of the world) It's getting colder, don't leave me hanging 'Cos I'm sick of these formalities, formalities Whoa oh
