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

  • Bury me in your heartstrings As there is no other place I'd like to sleep Accompanied by our wedding rings Oh, how I weep When I'm gone, will you remember me? Like I used to wait impatiently? In the darkness I'll be all alone But your memories, they'll keep me home Our children's laughter I will miss them dearly I hope they don't end up in disaster My mistakes... they'll impact them severely I only have a sole regret I never got to finish my baguette Oh, how I jest What more can I do, before I rest? Will it hurt, and will I burn? I'm scared it's too late Why did I not learn? I could have stopped right at the gate The screams, they still haunt I fear they'll never be gone Soon, it's me they'll daunt My fears will carry on But tell me, did I do right? If it's you I've hurt, then I don't deserve peace of mind I look into your eyes, and all I see is light Oh, but why was I never as kind? I became a prey to your beauty If only you had caught me sooner I would have stopped my duty At least I'd been a late bloomer To you, my Dear I offer my love and sorrow That I could not adhere So that we could enjoy tomorrow As one final gesture I planted a rose Hoping it'll be our treasure Bringing my life to a close Now I lay, in fear of judgment Please don't cry, as I could not bear you suffering You are my present And for you, I will be forever lamenting.

  • I made a storyyy: There's a boy named Alec who has many different sides. He is a singer who has gone through a lot yet still is here with us. (: This is all about him. Alec tried to find JESUS IN LA but found out that he was not in LA and that he was in Colorado so that's where he went and there, he was OUTRUNNING KARMA and couldn't find Jesus so gave up. In Colorado, he met a girl by a WATER FOUNTAIN and realized it was a girl he knew at school. He remembered her name was Annabelle and then remembered that he had decided to do ANNABELLE'S HOMEWORK all that time ago. When she went away, he whispered to himself, 'I WON'T FORGET YOU, Annabelle' and then carried on his adventure as there is no reason to stop here now. Many people thought of him as a cynic but he didn't care as he would murmur to himself 'I'M NOT A CYNIC.' The next day, he decides to sing as he thought 'IF WE HAVE EACH OTHER it will all be fine again' in the next hour he had made it somewhere where he saw a girl who he had changed himself for and remembered he has used the phrase 'IF I KILLED SOMEONE FOR YOU' many times to her. He then realized he needed a friend so he (I) BUILT A FRIEND to help him. At this time he was having many flashbacks and one of them was the nickname 'HER BROKEN HEARTED SAVIOUR.' When he had that one he teared up as he remembered him asking himself at that time 'There's GOTTA BE A REASON why I'm doing this to myself.' When he went to sleep that night, he remembered his old best friends, GABRIEL and STEVE but then decided he needed to FEED himself so he went to the store even though his DEMONS were still in his head. At the store, he watched the DEATH OF A HERO so he bought his things quickly and ran back to where he was staying which was COLIN'S HOUSE even though he knew Colin was CRAZY. It was around 6:48 PM when he got to the gate and a few minutes before, he had been the BOY IN THE BUBBLE as some kids had beat him up. In his head, he told himself it's BEAUTIFUL PAIN even though he didn't convince himself.. At the bottom of all of these thoughts was the ARMY OF A NATION where the soldiers were ANIMALs with ANESTHESIA. He was in AMERICA so he told someone 'BE MY ENEMY' but it was the END OF SUMMER so people were too cold to fight. As he didnt want to live he took a JOURNEY TO THE LOWEST PLACE ON EARTH and saw a demon and the demon says 'I'm JUST LIKE YOU, trying to escape life' and Alec realized this demon was the LAST OF HER KIND so he asked her 'Could you find a way to LET ME DOWN SLOWLY?' as he knew LOVE IS A FRAGILE DANCE and it is hard to find a MATCH IN THE RAIN though his MIND IS A PRISON even after he had a trip to the MEDICINE MAN. He knew he had this because he had his (MY) MOTHER'S EYES and screamed 'OH MY GOD' as he realized NOW SHE'S GETTING MARRIED so he found his (MY) OLD BICYCLE with his PAPER CROWN and pedalled all the way to the marriage but someone said to him 'SETTLE DOWN, you don't need to feel REPLACED, your (OUR) LOVE IS A BURNING GARDEN now that she is OLDER and you need to SMILE WHEN YOU'RE SAD and forget about the book you named 'THE BOOK OF YOU AND I' even though there is a (THE) KNIFE IN your (MY) BACK and if you need to, just write THE SADDEST SONG for THE WOLF AND THE SHEEP. Also you need to TIE YOUR LACES and move on instead of using (USE) her (ME) as TOGETHER WE FALL and it is the WORST DAY OF MY LIFE too. Please realize you are going THE WAY TO NOWHERE as you still have THE COLONEL'S JOURNAL with you. You can find him without having to SWIM as you can borrow my boat.' 'Thank you' replied Alec and he carried on his journey. There he found STAN the colonel who was born in 1994 the same as him. 'It might hurt AT THE BOTTOM' said the colonel, 'But you can marry my sister and we can live happily ever after' Alec and that girl were together through all the time, even when they got WRINKLES and lived happily ever after, just like the Colonel said. The enddd I hope you enjoy this, whoever reads this. I spent 40 minutes doing this.
