I still write songs about how we ended up if I didn't.
But I keep them close and tight to the paper and pen that started the act
but now this is the time to open up the door, let the people in
so they can hear the story of how we were,
so that they can learn from all the mistakes I've done.

I loved you, and I need to let this all out.
You held true, but I got used to pushing you around.
So listen up boys hold your loved ones tight,
it's something I didn't do.
Tell them you love them if it's true,
cause you can't wait to see what comes of you (oh woah).

Now you've moved on, I see that,
I'm so happy you're stronger.
I don't want to change you now
so I'll step back and teach them how,
cause this is the time to open up the door, let the people in
so they can hear the story of how we were,
so that they can learn from all the mistakes I've done.

I loved you, and I need to let this all out.
You held true, but I got used to pushing you around.
So listen up boys hold your loved ones tight,
and it's something I didn't do.
Tell them you love them if it's true,
cause you can't wait to see what comes of you (oh woah).

I still write songs about how we could've ended up if I didn't.
And now I will set them free
so that can know how it should be.
