lyrics

I never knew what would become of me
I have to admit, though, I should have seen this coming
What is it? What became of us?
Got to admit things got torturous
But when we fell apart
Admit it, things looked bad from the start

I guess it was just me
Years passed, we grew apart
This is just how we are
Had I known things would go this way
I would have stayed far away
We all are different people
Fighting through this tide of life
I’m drowning, I’ve been left behind

I never thought that I would be stuck here
But my growth was so slow, did the same things every year
Said, “goodbye,” left it all behind
Got to admit, was a bit jealous
You were moving forward
Forget it, I guess I’ll look onward

I guess it was just me that was stagnating
We all fell out of reach

Oh, and now we all went down our own paths
We have our own lives
And now I feel like I’ve been left behind
Years passed, we grew apart
This is just how we are
Had I known things would go this way
I would have stayed far away

We all are different people
Fighting through this tide of life
I’m drowning, I’ve been left behind
Things change, it’s how it is
I need to get past this
Why did I have to end up here?
I should have changed things that year

Get a job, get a job, get a real job
Turn it off, shut it down, it’s so loud, gonna pull the plug
All your dreams gone to waste and you know not gonna happen
Moving out, go to school, pay your bills, gonna lose my mind

Welcome to the game that is life
So, welcome to the game that is life

We all went down our own paths
We have our own lives
And now I feel like I’ve been left behind
Things change, it’s how it is
I need to get past this
Why did I have to end up here?
I’ve been left behind

We shared all our dreams
And even though they were crushed
I’ve got to give us credit

We held together well
But the good times have become such Hell
I tried hard, but there was nothing I could do

It went on for too long
It had to end
I tried hard, but there was nothing I could do

We had fun, but it’s done
We had to grow
Tried so hard, but there was nothing I could do
