lyrics

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Like this, OK

The other comforter, everytime I went to sleep
It's too bad that we had to end the dream
It doesn't mean that it was never meant to be
It just seems that we grew apart eventually
And if it turns out your the best I'll ever see
I'm thankful for the time in my prime you spent with me
The last thing I want is to overwrite the memories
I know we aren't friends it doesn't mean that we're enemies
Still getting used to the lack of your presence
I know we'll pull through but we'll have to do it seperate
No more bad jokes or "Would You Rather" questions
Feels so weird without you finishing my sentence
Almost ask if you're ready heading down
The house answered back with the emptiest of sounds
Go to share a song: You gotta listen to the sound
Turn around and show you, you're nowhere to be found

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Had our lives then we add a little twist
Things are different, have been ever since
Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce
Miss your laugh and that wonderful way
That beautiful smile like a warm summer day
Live the past over something you would say
There's no going back 'cause I had to run away

Gotta say that it feels a little strange
Writing for reflection, not out to make a change
Never meant for you to suffer any strain
Intentions are forgiven, I dismissed them with the blame
Scared to admit it, but we both could see the truth
And even though I'm still conflicted, take this song as proof
Drive across the States just to get away from you
That's two on the list of things I never wanna do
Had a full forty hours of just staring at my dashboard
Remembering with fondness, I'm only feeling half-torn
Memories of every last stamp in our passports
Feeling some regret 'cause I'm wishing that they matched more
People ask more, why I hold the past for
Overtime, can't rewind, flying towards that fast forward
Life's moving quick so I'm learning from this crash course
Speeding by, reaching high for that last score

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Had our lives then we add a little twist
Things are different, have been ever since
Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce
Miss your laugh and that wonderful way
That beautiful smile like a warm summer day
Live the past over something you would say
There's no going back 'cause I had to run away

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Had our lives then we add a little twist
Things are different, have been ever since
Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this
Miss your laugh and that wonderful way
That beautiful smile like a warm summer day
Live the past over something you would say
So want you back 'cause I love you anyway, Like- like
Love you anyway, Like this
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway, Like this

Everytime I look back along the path
Of the last seven years I see our two sets of tracks
Shoulder to shoulder, still we had each other's backs
Take a snapshot, let's never change the facts
Ever keen, we developed our dreams
Never mean toward each other yet we settled the steam
Beveled and engraved, this incredible scene
Indelible, we made a hell of a team
Together we were clever facing challenges and fears
Looking at each other, now your face is filled with tears
The vision is persistent, keeping you endeared
Staring at that door, half-expecting you'll appear
The thought of us hurt too much to keep it near
So this distance between us compares to light years
It's the same atmosphere, still hear it in my ears
I'm coming back home to you except now you're never here

There I was, frozen, standing in my backyard
Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star
There I was, frozen, standing in my backyard
Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star, Like this

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Had our lives then we add a little twist
Things are different, have been ever since
Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this
Miss your laugh and that wonderful way
That beautiful smile like a warm summer day
Live the past over something you would say
There's no going back 'cause I had to run away, Like- Like this

Never thought we'd have a song like this
Had our lives then we add a little twist
Things are different, have been ever since
Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this
Miss your laugh and that wonderful way
That beautiful smile like a warm summer day
Live the past over something you would say
I so want you back 'cause I love you anyway (Like-, like), love you anyway
Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, love you anyway
Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway
Love you anyway, (Like) love you anyway
