Do you remember those beautiful times,
When you made it your day's goal to make me smile?
What happened to that, where did you go?
The boy I once loved, who he's now I don't know
Do you remember when we'd talk through the night,
I'd tell you about everything going on in my life
You'd spill some secrets you weren't to tell,
Then I'd pinky promise and you'd talk about yourself
We'd argue about petty things and laugh at even smaller,
You always liked to pride yourself on the fact that you were taller
We had our many inside jokes that the world wouldn't understand,
Obsessing over books and shows, and a very many bands
That hoodie in my favourite colour, the one I wished was mine,
The one you said that I could borrow at any point in time
What happened to that, what happened to us?
What happened was that you had broken my trust
Remember when you created the perfect nickname,
Remember when our hopes were the very same
We believed we would last, we believed we were forever,
We believed after everything we'd still be together
What happened to the smiles, the talks through the night,
What happened to ranting about our lives?
What happened to the hope, the faith, the trust,
What happened to believing in the power of 'us'?
What happened to trying to stay together,
All those empty words,'love' and 'forever'
But it wasn't too hard for you to move on to another,
And now she'll wear that hoodie in my favourite colour.
