Everything looks better in rewind
I tell myself I’m not the choosing kind
Time goes on and ticks away
I watch the moment dissipate
Mind in motion all the time

That you look so sweet in my rosy colored memories

Cause I’m looking for something to fill up the holes
I’m looking for someone
To make it better make it better
Make it better
Make it rosy oh oh oh oh

I couldn’t see the forest for the trees
All I got was oxygen and evergreen leaves
It was never black and white
But you made it easy to decide

That you looked so sweet in my rosy colored memories

Cause I’m looking for something to fill up the holes
I’m looking for someone
To make it better make it better
Make it better better
Make it rosy oh oh oh oh

I don’t need a quick fix
I’ll stick it out on my own
I don’t want your bandages
I will fill my own
I will fill my own holes

Cause I’m looking for something to fill up the holes
I’m looking for someone
To make it better make it better
Make it better better
Make it rosy oh oh oh oh

    General Comment"Everything looks better in rewind" the relationship looks better in her memories than in real life.

    "I watch the moment dissipate, mind in motion all the time"
    She watches/knows that the relationship is having too many problems, or is ending, and obviously that's a lot to have on your mind.

    "You look so sweet in my rosey colored memories" again, they look better in her memories than in real life.

    "I'm looking for someone to fill up the wholes... Make it better/make me better"
    She needs someone who brings out the best and the happiness in her and not the opposite - which she is prone to.

    "It was never black and white but you made it easy to decide"
    He never made it clear what he wanted but made it clear whatever it was - wasn't enough for her, or wasn't her at all.

    "I don't need a quick fix I'll stick it out on my own, I don't need your bandages I can can fill my own holes"
    She'll be fine being alone and doesn't just need to be with someone to not feel empty, because she can fill her own holes (emotionally, and possibly sexually?).

    Basically it's about a girl who needs to let go of someone she loves because they are not good for her.
