everything i've ever done is the part of the aching me and the aching you
everything we ever knew could break us easily
so i pretend that i have what it takes to be a friend to only you
but i couldn't bear to become your choice of younger love

once i was pretty
i was pretty to anyone
once you admitted
i am pretty to only you
i think you owe me some recognition again

it doesn't make any sense to me now
and looking back it's even worse
but i suppose it was a part of my nature
everything i've ever done was a part of promising you
and keeping true
everything you've ever said is recorded in my heart

you wanna know how it feels now?
i'm just older and it feels right

once i was pretty
i was pretty to anyone
once you admitted
i am pretty to only you
i think you owe me some recognition again

i consequently choose to hide it
you know it's only our youth we're chasing
is it only our youth we're chasing?

we just won't become the wiser ones
we just won't become the wiser ones

once i was pretty
i was pretty to anyone
once i was pretty
i was pretty to only you
only you
only you
only you
only you
only you
i think you owe me
i think you owe me some recognition again
