All Too Well



I walked through the door with you, the air was coldBut something about it felt like home somehowAnd I left my scarf there at your sister's houseAnd you still got it in your drawer even now
Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gazeWe're singing in the car getting lost upstateAutumn leaves falling down like pieces into placeAnd I can picture it after all these days
And I know it's long goneAnd that magic's not here no moreAnd I might be okayBut I'm not fine at all
'Cause there we are again, on that little town streetYou almost ran the red 'cause you were looking over meWind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well
Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning redYou used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bedYour mother's telling stories about you on the tee ball teamYou tell me about your past, thinking your future was me
And I know it's long goneAnd there was nothing else I could doAnd I forget about you long enoughTo forget why I needed to
'Cause there we are again, in the middle of the nightWe dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator lightDown the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah
Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too muchAnd maybe this thing was a masterpiece 'til you tore it all upRunning scared, I was there, I remember it all too well
And you call me up again just to break me like a promiseSo casually cruel in the name of being honestI'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here'Cause I remember it all, all, all too well
Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by itI'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find itAfter plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your ownNow you mail back my things and I walk home alone
But you keep my old scarf from that very first week'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like meYou can't get rid of it 'cause you remember it all too well, yeah
'Cause there we are again, when I loved you soBack before you lost the one real thing you've ever knownIt was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well
Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it allDown the stairs, you were there, you remember it allIt was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well
