You and me, all alone girl
What’s going on
Will you tell me what’s wrong
It’s like you’re locked up
in your own world
Oh, with nothin’ to say

You keep me guessing,
But I see in your eyes
He made you promises,
But gave you lies
You’re shutting down
Because you’re so sure,
That I’ll be another mistake

I know that he left you in pieces
You know that I won’t be that way
I’m not gonna treat you like he did
Oh, Whatever it takes
You think history is repeated
You keep on pushing me away
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change
Waiting for yesterday

Is it worth it any longer
So scared of falling again
Yesterday can make it stronger
But why do you feel alone
You know I love you better
than he ever did
And this could be, all you ever needed
Hold onto me and just remember
Oh, no. Never let go

I know that he left you in pieces
You know that I won’t be that way
I’m not gonna treat you like he did
Oh, Whatever it takes
You think history is repeated
You keep on pushing me away
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change
Waiting for yesterday

I’m the one for you tonight
I’m the one for you forever
If it takes a little time,
Whatever it takes, whatever it takes
I’m the one for you tonight,
I’m the one for you forever
If it takes a little time
Whatever it takes, whatever it takes

I know that he left you in pieces
You know that I won’t be that way
I’m not gonna treat you like he did
Oh, Whatever it takes
You think history is repeated
You keep on pushing me away
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change
Waiting for yesterday

I know that he left you in pieces
You know that I won’t be that way
I’m not gonna treat you like he did
Oh, Whatever it takes
You think history is repeated
You keep on pushing me away
Oh, but nothing’s gonna change
Waiting for yesterday

    General CommentI looovveee this song!
    Its probably about David likeing a girl who just got out of a bad realtionship and now is a little hesitant to trust guys again. But David is trying to tell her that he won't be a jerk like that guy.
    That's my theary :) haha
    an interesting music video for this song would be a Taylor Swift Joe Jonas thangg! hahah
    just my opinion :)
