Track Name: Nostalgia
Feels like not so long ago
When we knew which way to go
and things could still have been ok had we just stayed
we were only having fun
wasn't hurting anyone
but once the sun came up I saw what we had made

I never thought that ours could be a selfish love
but it appears that I've become a captive of

Is it just me or do things seem
a bit more heavy, worried, mean?
And it just feels like it
was better once before?
If I could just remember when
I'd try to make us great again
Can you remind me
what it is we're fighting for?

Sometimes I cannot bring myself to look outside
There's nothing wrong with looking for a place to hide
Please let me be along with my nostalgia
