Life keeps passing me by too quickly to give me a chance to reflect.
And one simple smile won't be enough to earn my trust and respect.
Take my arrogance, doused in all this hesitance, here's something I just can't forget.
The lessons I've learned, the stories that I could tell, do they come to an end?
Oh no.
Dear Nostalgia, you keep holding on to me,
Tempting me to fall back asleep, and
Nostalgia, you've done nothing good for me.
I'm holding on to the past, you're not letting me be
Who I wanna be.
Poor clueless girl, you haven't yet figured out that running away
Makes matters worse. Your mind has seemed to go blind, no one can save you today.
Do you taste hypocrisy in every word I say?
Cause these words are drenched in it, baby.
But my mind is set, there is no reason to fret about another day.
To be honest, I'm not sure how much of this was blindly written in vain,
And how much is truly me learning to express myself again.
Well, through the eyes of my idol, I've just about done nothing wrong at all.
If I saw life through his eyes, how different would I be, and how much the same?
Are we the same?
Dear Nostalgia, you keep holding on to me,
Tempting me to fall back asleep, and
Nostalgia, you've done nothing good for me.
I'm holding on to the past, you're not letting me be
Who I wanna be.
Take me to the ocean, it's where I need to be.
Take me to the ocean, it's where I need to be.
Lay me by the ocean, it's where I need to be.
Lay me by the, lay me by the, lay me by the oh
By the oh-oh, by the oh-oh, by the oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh ohh
Ladadadadadadadada
Dear Nostalgia, you keep holding on to me,
Tempting me to fall back asleep, and
Nostalgia, you've done nothing good for me.
I'm holding on to the past, you're not letting me be
Nostalgia, you keep holding on to me,
Tempting me to fall back asleep, and
Nostalgia, you've done nothing good for me.
I'm holding on to the past, you're not letting me be
Who I wanna be.
