I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted
I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted
And even though all your friends tell me you’re doing fine
And you’re somewhere feeling lonely even though he’s right beside you
When he says those words that hurt you do you read the ones I wrote you?

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the makeup running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things

Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape
‘Cause I’m not fine at all

The pictures that you sent me they’re still living in my phone
I admit I like to see them even when I feel alone
All my friends keep asking why I’m not around
It hurts to see you happy and it hurts that you moved on
It’s hard to hear your name when I haven’t seen you in so long

It’s like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the makeup running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things

Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

If today I woke up with you right beside me
Like all of this was just some twisted dream

I’d hold you closer than I ever did before
And you’d never slip away
And you’d never hear me say

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the makeup running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape
I’m not fine at all

    I've read an opinion about this song so this comment will be credited to that person who said this. This is what she said:

    A boy is in love with a suicidal girl. The boy tries everything he could to save the girl from her own mind.

    "Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he's right beside you? When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?"

    Can refer to her demons talking to her.

    "I remember the day you told me you were leaving. I remember the makeup running down your face."

    Can refer to the girl leaving the cruel world by committing suicide. And sadly, she did.

    The boy gets heartbroken; devastated. He wishes that he could wake up with amnesia and forget about everything.

    He thinks about her in heaven, how she's probably fine now... finally happy.

    "Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie? If what we had was real, how could you be fine?"

    How could she be fine? How could she be fine with leaving him if she truly loved him? The boy feels betrayed almost. Because of her action, the boy now drowns in his own demons:

    "Cause I'm not fine at all."

    This song makes me want to cry so much sometimes and it actually did without me trying to. This song has a meaning to it that you won't be able to understand unless you have ever felt the way that this song is was created. This song is about heartbreak to me maybe even more but I don't know yet. This song could mean lots of things to lots of people and a great possibility that it means way more than anyone could ever think if you're in a position like that then I would recommend this song because it will make you cry if you listen to it enough times like I did because amnesia made me cry just by listening to it. Anyone who listens to 5 Seconds Of Summer or to sad songs that you want to make you cry then this song would be perfect for you.

    Everyone I talk to that knows this song says, "I cry every time I listen to this." But I don't believe it. Because, when I hang around my friends and we listen to this song, they don't cry. However, I understand the want or the urge to cry, for this song has quite a meaning. To me, its about a boy, and he loses a girl. She leaves him to be with someone else, he doesn't understand why she was able to leave without being as hurt as he was. He's reliving the memories they had together, because he wants them to be true again. After reliving everything, he wonders what would have happened had they not broken apart.
