“highschool” Lyrics

i used to be cool
i used to be new
just like you told me
that time in school

we can cut class
we could hold hands
we could go to prom
but i can’t really dance

you used to let me copy
cause i would never study
you used to text me everyday
and tell me i was funny

i was the shy kid
sitting in silence
frown on my face
pick me up keep me smiling

i met you in the summer
everything i wanted
after time passed
started feeling like a puppet
you can throw me away
when the colors fade
ill be back in your arms
on another day

then you got new friends
left the old ones
but the new ones
not the best ones

you say that you met one
at your college
he’s an alcoholic
if we’re really being honest

they don’t really care
about you like i do
and every time i tell you that
you think i’m tryna fight you

i’m not tryna fight you
take me back to high school
you said you wanna die
i guess imma say goodbye too

i met you in the summer
everything i wanted
after time passed
started feeling like a puppet
you can throw me away
when the colors fade
ill be back in your arms
on another day
