I miss the breeze of the summer air
The sunlight against me skin
Do you remember it?
We all felt more alive

(You have to hold on)
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We drifted off and we drifted

You never know just what you have until it's gone
And after the ink dries
Every page of this will burn

(You have to hold on)
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We drifted off and we drifted
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We drifted off and we drifted

Hold on
Sitting with my head in my hands
Outside on the steps of my home
You can't take those moments back
So hold on and never let go
Sitting with my head in my hands
Outside on the steps of my home
You can't take those moments back
So hold on and never let go

(Hold on)
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We drifted off and we drifted
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off
Yesterday when the wax was burning
We drifted off and we drifted

    General CommentThis song seems to be about growing up and the loss of innocence, as is the video for it.

    "I miss the breeze of the summer air
    The sunlight against my skin
    Do you remember it?
    We all felt more alive"
    - Remember the good times?

    "Yesterday when the wax was burning
    We tried to stay awake but we kept drifting off"
    - We tried to stay the same but everyone changed and went different directions.

    "You never know just what you have until it's gone
    And after the ink dries every page of this will burn"
    - Good times, but they're gone and not coming back.

    "Sitting with my head in my hands outside on the steps of my home
    You can't take those moments back so hold on and never let go"
    - I can't believe how everything's changed. I can't redo time, I can't redo the past, so I'll hold on to the memories of what once was and never let them go.

    Eh?
