Lyrics

Stay (stay), no I know that you won't understand this place (this place this place)
No I don't wanna go you'll forget my face (my face)
I try (I try) to find (to find) the right (the right)
Words to tell you how we go round and round

So I'm sorry that these tears keep streaming from my eyes,
But I know this gaze is something you won't recognize

Can we find a way, find a way to save
All the missing memories we made
Cause I can't let you let me go (me go)
Gotta find a way, back to yesterday
Cause tomorrow I'm a stranger face
And I can't let that take its toll (its toll)

So let's just reminisce until you can't forget
All the moments we miss or the love we've always had
Can we find a way, find a way to save
All the missing memories we made
Cause I can't let you let me just can't let you let me go

I remember when times were tough
I could call you for the pick me up
When the weight of the world overwhelmed
You were there to ensure nothing fell
Never know how, never know when
All I know now, is I can't bend
Time to stay strong enough for you

So I'm sorry that these tears keep streaming from your eyes,
And I hope this gaze is something you will recognize

Can we find a way, find a way to save
All the missing memories we made
Cause I can't let you let me go (me go)
Gotta find a way, back to yesterday
Cause tomorrow I'm a stranger face
And I can't let that take its toll (its toll)

So let's just reminisce until you can't forget
All the moments we miss or the love we've always had
Can we find a way, find a way to save
All the missing memories we made
Cause I can't let you let me just can't let you let me go
