Lyrics
[Chorus]
Goodbye to the memories, goodbye to the dream
Didn't know I’d have to find my way back
Can I just let this be?
Goodbye to the memories, goodbye to the dream
Didn't know I’d have to find my way back
Can I just let this be?

Somewhere down the road I guess we took a wrong turn
I took your pictures, lit a match and watch them all burn
I can’t take anymore break ups, or make ups
So straight up, I won’t be there tomorrow when you wake up
But wait up, listen baby girl don’t get it twisted
We gave it all we had, attempted everything to fix it
Another broken heart, I can’t risk it
Girl its plain is simple, we took a shot and we missed it
And now the place I piss in, is where the memories of us are livin'
Down the drain, no more pain
But baby I ain’t kidding, when I tell you that you’ll always have a place in my life
But tonight I’ma make it right
Yeah, I’ma say

[Chorus]

Yeah, I guess I’m back at square 1,
Our love is rare, it’s too bad it wasn’t well done
Yeah we had a good run, never reached the finish line
Wish that we could start again, wish we could go back in time
Wish we could have seen the future, now we’re history
Consistently sending me text, saying that you’re missing me
I’m tryina forget about you, baby girl you’re killing me
And when you hear that last line, you’ll probably be pissed at me
But what can you, girl I’m tryna do me
Clean, slate, fresh start, baby I’m a new me
I promise that you’ll always have a place in my life
But tonight I’ma make it right
Yeah, I’ma say

[Chorus]

Somewhere down the road I guess we took a wrong turn
I took your pictures, lit a match and watch them all burn
Somewhere down the road I guess we took a wrong turn
I took your pictures, lit a match and watch them all burn
I watched them all burn

[Chorus]
