I remember laughing at the way you said my name.
Driving in the car with the windows down, while it was pouring rain.
We were never cool and we never quite knew why.
But when I was with you everything made sense looking back I realize.

Dreaming what my life would be like afterschool.
Best times I ever had was spent with you when we were both uncool.

Ridin' up and down on the escalator
Mall is gonna close I'll see ya later.
Bye, don't let 'em see you cry.
You only get a chance it's now or never
Once the moments gone, it's gone forever.
I, I've gotta try, so why don't we try?

Somewhere along the way I lost what I had found.
Swimming in a sea of apathy and familiar sights and sounds

Remember when we talked and had nothing to say
I'll always wonder why I nothing good stays gold we let it slip away.

My heads up in the clouds and I am such a fool
Best times I ever had was spent with you when we were both uncool.

Ridin' up and down on the escalator
Mall is gonna close I'll see ya later.
Bye, don't let 'em see you cry.
You only get a chance it's now or never
Once the moments gone, it's gone forever.
I, I've gotta try, so why don't we try?

All of the chances we used to take
Every promise we'll never break
So many dreams with so little time
When I'm with you I know I'll be fine
All of the places we used to go
All of the people we used to know
Some of them lost, some disappeared
Nothing else matters as long as you're here (2x)

As long as you're here (3x)

Ridin' up and down on the escalator
Mall is gonna close I'll see ya later.
Bye, don't let 'em see you cry.
You only get a chance it's now or never
Once the moments gone, it's gone forever.
I, I've gotta try, so why don't we try?
