about

A song about childhood.

lyrics

V1:
I'm not looking for happy endings
I don't wanna go back to then
But I look in other people's windows
And pretend that I am one of them

V2:
I'm not looking for validation
I don't want you to hold me tight
But I stand in somebody else's kitchen
And I long for somebody else's life

Chorus:
It's taking me back to Summer nights
And Christmas lights
And getting off the bus
And it would be so much easier
To watch it burn
If all that ever came of us
Was water damage on kitchen floors
And wanting more
But you gave me just enough
To know what I missed out on
All the things that I have missed out on

V3:
I'm not looking for arms around me
I'm not trying to turn back time
But I wander down streets that I still don't know the names of
And I cry, cause they could have been mine
They could have been mine
Mine

Chorus:
It's taking me back to Summer nights
And Christmas lights
And getting off the bus
And it would be so much easier
To watch it burn
If all that ever came of us
Was water damage on kitchen floors
And wanting more
But you gave me just enough
To know what I missed out on
All the things that I have missed out on

Bridge:
And in my mind someone who looks absolutely nothing like you
Speaks these words sincerely
But in my mind lately I guess they have been fading from my view
Cause I know that they're not really meant for me
And none of this was ever meant for me

Chorus:
I'll never be there on Summer nights
For Christmas lights
Or getting off the bus
And it would be so much easier
To watch it burn
If all that ever came of us
Was water damage on kitchen floors
And wanting more
But you gave me just enough
To know what I missed out on
All the things that I have missed out on

Outro:
All the things that I have missed out on
All the things I that I have missed out
