Remember when I said
Let's go to the neighborhood
They haven't finished yet
Our minds crossed as cement set
I don't want to change
That's what I should have wrote in that driveway
Stay the same
Some decisions you don't make
All this pushed aside
I'm scared of losing the past that we built

You push me away
You push me away
But I feel alright
If time was on my side, then the clocks would say
I'm sorry

Caught myself again
Saying something I didn't mean
All because of spite
The truth remains
I'm wrong, you're right
I fuck this up almost every time
All this pushed aside
I'm scared of losing the past that we built
We built
Like every lock needs a key
Nostalgia's the pillow between our knees
And I can't decide if that's a good or a bad thing

You push me away
You push me away
But I feel alright
If time was on my side, then the clocks would say
I'm sorry
You push me away
You push me away
But I feel alright
I feel alright

If you feel your lake overflowing
I'll drink your water
We could spend more scholarship money
To live like modern day draft dodgers
It's about time I said
Coming up has got me down again
It's about time I said
Coming up has got me down again
Coming up has got me down again

You push me away
You push me away
But I feel alright
If time was on my side, then the clocks would say
I'm sorry
You push me away
You push me away
But I feel alright
If time was on my side, then the clocks would say
What's it got to do with me anyway

    General CommentThis song's about things changing over time and regretting something with someone (a girl?) in the past.

    It's about nostalgia - missing the past, because things have changed between him and this person.
