Lyrics
Well it all began in the back of her car
I was just sixteen, but I fell so hard
Well the years went by and she held my heart
But her love ran dry and we fell apart
I felt her growing distant
I knew her love was shifting
And all that I could say was
Don’t tell me that it’s over
The book of you and I
Now you’ve scribbled out my name
And you’ve erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I’m missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You didn’t give a reason and I’ll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I
Well I bought a pen and I turned the page
Then I wrote about how I wish you’d stayed
I said all the things that I never got to say
Maybe when it’s done I will feel okay
But she had grown so distant
And that her love had shifted
I wish she felt the same
Don’t tell me that it’s over
The book of you and I
Now you’ve scribbled out my name
And you’ve erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I’m missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason and I’ll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I
Don’t tell me, tell me that you’re leaving
My belly hurts and my heart is hardly beating right
I hate to beg, but I’ll try one last time
Don’t tell me that it’s over
The book of you and I
Now you’ve scribbled out my name
And you’ve erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I’m missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason and I’ll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

  • This song makes me cry almost every time, only song that can do that to me. Especially the line "There were so many chapters we never got to write, like cereal for dinner, and staying up all night." It's the little things in a relationship that make me happy, such as "Cereal for dinner, and staying up all night." Thinking I might not be able to ever achieve that with the person I currently love, breaks my heart I don't know why I have these thoughts of never being able to, we clearly love each other very much but I always focus on that for some reason. I've obtained happiness and I'm so lucky to have her, but I always... and I mean always worry about losing her. I just want to keep her forever and I guess just the thought of not being able to, is the only thing I have to worry about. I love you, Vivian. Truly and honestly with all of my heart. Thank you for everything.

  • randomly came across Alec years ago, when i just started listening to English songs. I've always been the guy that was more into the lyrics because what good is a song anyways if it can't paint a picture, right? metro lyrics (or so ig, it's been years) put Alec's "Paper Crown" as the best song (lyrically) at the time that I was looking for some good songs, and I was blown away! It's been around 8 years or so since then. He wasn't big at all at that time and I wasn't too much into English songs yet, so just lost track of him until I came across this masterpiece in "Let me down Slowly"(which is btw the only song I've ever covered and is uploaded on my instagram. putting it here cause I've got anxiety and its a step towards getting out of my bubble and trying to work on music. so if anyone wants to check it out, the instagram is 'guy_next_floor'). Anyways, point is, I'm hooked! to think I missed out on his music for so many years before finding it again, is kinda amazing to me! feels like destny, especially since his songs motivated me to start writing my own :) Him and Jon Bellion are, I suppose, the best musicians in the industry rn. Thank you, Alec!

  • OKAY, THIS IS ENOUGH. DEAR ALEC BENJAMIN'S FANS, I have come up with an idea because I feel he isn't getting the attention that he deserve (if you are interested I INSIST YOU TO DO THIS TOO). - He will get more mainstream attention if he has a huge fan base! And for that we can do this little thing (if huge number of people do this, it can work remarkably well). So we all need to do this: - Apart from being his constant fans, COMMENT ABOUT HIM ON YOUR OTHER FAVORITE ARTIST'S SONGS AS WELL. FOR EXAMPLE: "This is legit my next favorite song after My mind is a prison by Alec Benjamin" or something along the lines that doesn't look creepy y'know? YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE STUFF UP, just be honest about what you think about his songs and comment about that! The more people see it, the more likely it is that people will check out his work, and as we all know if you listen to this man's work once, YOU ARE BOUND TO BECOME A FAN. Because he is REAL. I don't know if this idea is good or dumb, but I know that I want to put in extra efforts for him! Hope you'll do too!

  • It was the end of the summer, Steve (the boy in the bubble) and I were doing Annabelle’s homework: a book report on the book of you and I, and a History paper on the Alamo. Trying to write like Annabelle is like trying to light a match in the rain. It’s impossible! Her writing is so bad, I feel like there’s a knife in my back! I’m not a cynic, but oh my gosh! I couldn’t take it anymore, so we paid Gabriel to do it for us. “I hope that I am just like you” Gabriel thought as he attempted to write as close to Annabelles writing as he could. He hadn’t written this much since 1994! Meanwhile, we were looking for Jesus in LA and all we found were demons! We went back and found Gabriel and we pushed him into the water fountain. He asked, “who did that?!” We responded, “must’ve been the wind.” He had to swim out of the fountain! He told us we were outrunning karma. There’s gotta be a reason he hates us, but I wouldn’t know it! Steve asked how I would feel if he killed someone for me... I mean, don’t get me wrong... it’s a nice offer, but what if he caused the death of a hero! I mean, if we have each other well both be fine so I told Steve there was no need, but he told me there was “no need to let me down slowly”. Anyway, when I got home I looked into my mothers eyes and gave her a paper crown Steve and I made out of Annabelles Trigonometry homework. I sat in my bed and thought so many terrible thoughts, and I knew my mind was a prison and I’m never gonna get out. Written by 👻

  • I love his music because it changes to fit the story he is trying to tell, not what is popular. He doesn’t change his style to appeal to the majority, he just does his own thing, and lets us either like it or not, and for me I love it. He tells a story and he is way to underrated.
