Lyrics
"So the question is, why doesn't he grow up?
Why does he still behave as a child?
How can we help him get rid of these
leftovers from chidish behavior"
This is the winter of our youth oh but I'm not there yet
I've got nostalgia running through me and I don't like it

Oh my, my, my, my, now
I can almost taste it, taste it but I, just hope we didn't waste it
I know the winter's getting colder but why, just cause we're a little older do
I relive it, I relive it oh, I'm peddling backwards
Even if I'm peddling alone, can't help it, I relive it, I relive it, oh
It's 4AM here comes the fear, I'm not prepared yet
And when we pick over the past we glorify it

Oh my, my, my, my
I hope I wasn't wasted, wasted, I hope I didn't drink it away
I know the winter's getting colder but why, just cause we're a little older do
I relive it, I relive it oh, I'm peddling backwards
Even if I'm peddling alone, can't help it, I relive it, I relive it, oh
I let myself bathe in the past for way, way, way too long
And now it seems that I've drunk too much to give you what you want

I know the winter's getting colder but why, just cause we're a little older do
I relive it, I relive it oh, I'm peddling backwards
Even if I'm peddling alone, can't help it, I relive it, I relive it, oh

Can't help it, I relive it, I relive it, oh, can't help it
I relive it, I relive it, oh, I'm peddling backwards
Even if I'm peddling alone, can't help it, I relive it, I relive it, oh
