Remember all the time that we spent
Way back when
You know I never thought it'd ever end
And even though life took us away
For some years and some days
Somehow we got a second chance
To tell the truth its even

Better than it used to be (4x)

Ok, remember as kids
Bustin backflips
On lunch time grasses
After classes
It's tragic we let our peers get between our magic
Lookin back got me wondering where our past went

But now fast forward to the future
You could say that friendships equivilent to Cupid
cooped us back to the dynamic duo that we were a couple years ago
And I know it's different, but ain't it better tho?


Freshman year I had braces and a recieding hairline
But you ain't never hesitated once to wave hi
To keep the story short , I asked you out, and you said, "Why?"
Rejection at its finest, I left and never inquired

Sophomore year it was quite the oposite
Came to me like a flower and I fell like a rock and it
Was kind of surprising to know that 1 year later
After the universe kept us apart
Were back to our homeostasis

And we're choppin it up on a regular basis
You at the studio with me watching this magic in the makin
And it's even more magic just to know after what happened
Were back in our spaceship coupe love struck on a course crashing

To something better than it used to be
And girl you've gotten used to me
From usin me to loosin me to building me back piece by piece
It's a great feeling to know the past is over
Like you said, "You only cut somethin off to grow closer"
