5 Seconds Of Summer – Amnesia lyrics

[Verse 1 (Calum)]
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 your friends tell me you're doing fine,
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?

[Pre-Chorus (Calum)]
Sometimes I start to wonder was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?
Cos I'm not fine at all


[Chorus (Luke/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,
Cos I'm not fine at all.

[Verse 2 (Calum)]
The pictures that you sent me they're still living in my phone,
I'll admit I like to see them, I'll admit I feel alone
,
And all my friends keep asking why I'm not around.
It hurts to know you're happy, and it hurts that you've moved on.
It's hard to hear your name when I haven't seen you in so long.

[Pre-Chorus (Calum)]
It's like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?
Cos I'm not fine at all

[Chorus (Luke/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,

[Bridge (Luke)]
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:

[Chorus (Luke/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.
Cos I'm not fine at all


[Outro (Luke)]
No, I'm really not fine at all.
Tell me this is just a dream,
Cos I'm really not fine at all
.

    To me, its about the good ol' days when the boys were just Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Michael Clifford. Not Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds of Summer. "I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted." They can't do that anymore, they are always busy and exhausted. "I wish that I could wake up with amnesia and forget about the stupid little things." Everything might just be too much for them and they might just want their old lives back. Everything as in the fans, the concerts, management, the hate, the constant paparazzi following them all over the world in every dark corner, every alleyway, every exit. "The pictures that you sent me they're still living in my phone. I'll admit I like to see them, I'll admit I feel alone." They still have pictures from when they were normal teenage boys hanging out with their friends. They like to occasionally look at them for old times' sake, but feel this empty hollowness in their hearts. That empty hollowness is called longing. They long to go back in time and relive those special moments.

    But it could also be a break up song. In one of their concerts, Calum mentions that this song is about a girl named Amnesia. Not about waking up with the illness amnesia, but with a girl.

    It all makes sense either way.

    Hope this helped with whatever you were looking for!

    Okay so, this is coming from a official fan. In a video they explain that the song isn't necessarily about a breakup, it's about them reminiscing about the past, before they got discovered. The line "and the dreams we left behind, we didn't need them..." Explains how there biggest dream came true, they don't need the little ones anymore. Overall the whole song is about the the past and how the fame is sort of taking its toll on their lives, not a girl. This is the meaning from them, but it does make a great breakup song.

    Uhmmm I think the meaning of this is a boy that can't move on to a girl that he love. He just wants to you know move on forget about the "STUPID" things that he shared with that. I can relate this to my real life honestly! Because there's this some boy that I really like, and yeah we shared memories together but we're just friends. And really just right now I think I just fell in love with a boy who just can't love me back so I want to wake up tomorrow with amnesia and just clear my memories all over again. Sometimes I really wished that I will wake up with amnesia. So that's my explanation about. I want to share cause I think I'm gonna explode inside me I want to share this so yeah thanks for reading.

    If this song was to be easily summed up it's about a relationship that has ended while the guy is dealing with it quite badly trying to get rid of the memories because he might of loved his ex girlfriend. With all his heart he hates to know she's happy and loving some one else instead of him with makes him want to for forget about all the memories they ever had like falling asleep next to the love of his life and the wishes they might of had when they were older and more mature. But on the perspective of his ex she's found some body new so she is that she can make new memories and new dreams but the guy feels as of although she might be with someone else. She might sit there all alone and the love letter he wrote her does she ever read them when it feels like her new boyfriend says words that really hurt and sometimes he feels like there relationships was just a lie cuz he's not fine at all while she's happy with someone who isn't him which makes him want to forget that he even met her so he don't have to deal with a broken heart.

    This song has a lot of meaning for me. It was the first song I heard by them and it helped me through tough times like my parents fighting and my crush playing me. The meaning is simple, the girl left the guy and she's moved on but he can't forget her. Her pictures and number are still in his phone he doesn't spend anytime with his friends he just can't forget her. He wish he could wake up with Amnesia to forget her for awhile. He wishes it was a bad dream, because then she wouldn't leave him.
