You know the words I know you’ll say already break my heart
You think we’re better off apart
Gazing up at the beautiful sunset
The time to make wishes and regret
So many stars to wish upon
And so many thoughts to dwell on
Because here are you and I
Standing beneath the ever- changing sky
How did we ever make it this far around
We’re such a long way from that playground
Do you remember when we were five?
Back when we promised to be best friends for life?
How did we grow up so fast?
How’d we leave behind that past?
The sun sinks beneath the sea
As your arms wrap around me
Pushing away the cold
Pushing away all the lies we were told
Do you remember when
So long ago that we were ten?
And we’d run outside during summer and play
We’d be out in the woods all day
We’d draw a line in the dirt and play war
With innocent minds and wooden swords
And now here we stand
Under the stars, hand and hand
As the ocean breeze blows
I don’t know
How we entered this dream
Do you remember when we were thirteen?
We got into fights
Always thinking we were right
Breaking the rules
Waiting until next year when we were out of middle school
Now the waves wash against the shore
I’m begging for just a moment more
Because people never
But we can live in now, however unreal it seems
Do you remember being sixteen?
When you crashed you dad’s new car
You still have that fourteen- stitched scar
When you gave me the best ever Christmas gift
Pulled me close for my first ever kiss
All of these memories
Drifting around us, lost in the sea
So many things to dream of
Like what it’s like to be in love
And I know I have to find the words to say
Before you leave me today
