[Verse 1]

I miss the way it used to be

Back when it was only you and me

Back when all this stuff was new to me

And you could see the brute in me and knew just what I grew to be

Back when labels were pursuing me

Back when bigger fish were suing me

Back before I had this jewelry

Before I thought I’d love again, who could have guessed that you would be

The one to prove me wrong, right

Now I think about it all night

All the times we had together when there

Were no others better and now everything is gone like

The times that I was rapping

Every day and you would stay and we were writing songs and laughing

I stopped working and you didn’t which pulled us down separate paths and

Now I ask myself a thousand times how I ever let it happen

 

[Chorus]

I still remember that one month of May

I said I’d move out there, we’d run L.A.

You said don’t come unless you come to stay

I realized then we weren’t just fun and play 

Now I don’t know how, but I want to say

That I’m sorry for giving up, I pray

That maybe “us” will see another day

Maybe someday we can runaway

 

[Verse 2]

When we met we were so flushed with lust

But we knew deep down we mustn't rush

And let our love become too tough to rust

But time became presumptuous

Then a day was like a month to us

But we’d count those days and just adjust

I guess the lives we lived caught up to us

I guess that time was not enough to trust

You know I know that I was wrong, right

Now I think about it all night

I know this song won’t bring you back to me

Or get a face to face with you, but chances are a call might

So I practice what I’d say to you

But to be honest I’m afraid of you

Afraid to face the face I left confused and address the muse

That stole my heart and took my dreams and made them true

 

[Chorus]

I still remember that one month of May

I said I’d move out there, we’d run L.A.

You said don’t come unless you come to stay

I realized then we weren’t just fun and play 

Now I don’t know how, but I want to say

That I’m sorry for giving up, I pray

That maybe “us” will see another day

Maybe someday we can runaway

Do you remember that one month of May

That I moved out here to run L.A.

With you and told you that I’d come to stay

But all I did was just have fun and play 

I was afraid, but I just want to say

That losing you has ripped me up, I pray

That I’ll be seeing you another day

’Til then I’ll close my eyes and runaway

 

[Outro]
