lyrics

i had a dream that
one day i showed up
at where you work and i paid
all your student loans off
like it was nothing
oh
like it was nothing

i had a dream that
it was the morning
and you weren't just
waiting for your iphone to start
ringing
you were just sleeping
oh
like it was nothing

today somebody told me
they want the old me back
i know i know i know
somebody had to hold me back

today somebody told me
they want the old me back
i know i know i know
nobody who knows me
wants the old me
back

i had a dream that
i had commanded
the return of everything of yours
they'd taken
and people listened
oh
like it meant something

i had a dream that
i was fifteen, and
i could see everything that was about
to happen
and i could stop it
oh
like it was nothing


today somebody told me
they want the old me back
i know i know i know
somebody had to hold me back

today somebody told me
they want the old me back
i know i know i know
nobody who knows me
wants the old me
back

it's like i always told you
it's like i always said
you got your arms around it
that's how you know it's dead

it's like i always told you
it's like i always said
once you feel like it's starting
you're almost at the end

it's like i always told you
it's like i always said
you can't just choose what people
do and do not forget

it's like i always tell you
it's like i always say
baby i'll always love you
to your eternal shame
