lyrics

I've been up all these nights
counting this city lights,
listening to Jimmy Eat World,
planning my escape from this place.
So I started to write these songs about
how many times I've painted you
in my mind.
I'm playing with matches
but never found the guts to tell you how I cared.

I will hold on, keeping all those good memories
close to me
and when it will be said and done,
I'll leave like summer leaves in leaves
I will hold on, keeping all those good memories
close to me
I'll forever rewind my vhs, like when I was young.

Do you remember the night we feel in love
listening hand in hand to "the rock show?"
and every time I passed through your house
crouching you from your window
hoping to crawl in your bed with you.
I know that now you're living your own life.
I know I have to live mine.

I will hold on, keeping all those good memories
close to me
and when it will be said and done,
I'll leave like summer leaves in leaves
I will hold on, keeping all those good memories
close to me
I'll forever rewind my vhs, like when I was young.

And I still write all these fucking songs about
how I picture you in my mind
even if you're far away
I will hold on and start to live my life.
But jesus christ! I'm only 23 years old
yes, jesus christ! I am a walking mess.

I will hold on, keeping all those good memories
close to you
You'll forever rewind your vhs, like when you were young.
