5 Seconds Of Summer – Amnesia lyrics

[Verse 1]
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,
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]
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


[Chorus]
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.

[Verse 2]
The pictures that you sent me they're still living in my phone,
I admit I like to see them I admit I feel alone
.
All my friends keep asking why I'm not around,
It hurts to know 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.

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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]
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]
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


[Outro]
No I'm really not fine at all.
Tell me this is just a dream.
'Cause I'm really not fine at all.

    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.

    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.

    I loved this song and I got crazy over this one. Actually, I had a pretty long time of lss with it. It actually explained what my heart wants to shout out. I've been drowning in solitude from my boyfriend who was dropped out from our school because of some "case" that he's been involved, well, blamed with. I was really feeling way down when I was left in our school, walking by the places that we used to waste time on.

    Well, actually I don't have my cp for about one year I think? I got grounded. Because of him. I risked everything ya know. I sacrificed everything. And now, even my social network accounts are taken from me. I really feel jailed now. Well, one big problem we have/had was my parents. They were against our relationship. It was back last year that we had many argues about this concept of problem. He wanted a cool-off or break-up, but I insisted to try and try and fight and stand for this one. Cause I'm really determined. I chose this decision. And I'm going to make it right, even if it's wrong. My dad took my FB, so I made a new hidden one. But as a cause of my idiocy, I used my mom's cp to log-in one time. She woke up and got angry. She took her phone and read (red) our last convos. She typed him a very long message. And he said "I'm really sorry. I promise you that I'll just purposely stay away from her." That was about last December. That msg was intended for my mom but she wasn't able to read it. I'm the only one who read it. Ok. I respect his decision, mostly because it was the right one. And you know? Since that day, we haven't even talked. Even a single Hi or Hello. It's really burdening and hurting me. I already accepted the fact that we can't be together anymore. I hardly accepted it. And all I want now is even just a proper goodbye or break-up. Yeah? Even just that. Because it dam hurts me every time someone asks me "Hey how are you? Are you and (?) still together?" and I can't answer anything but "I don't know." or "Ewan". It just hurts me. Just think of it. A very simple question, to be answered by a simple yes or no, but I'm going to answer "I don't know"?! I really feel an idiot of myself. And up until now, I don't know what we are. Because, as in, we haven't cleared it up yet. We haven't talked yet and everything. We see each other at church, and I know that he's staying away from me. I respect that. And I hardly accept that. But somehow, it'll be a bit relief for me if we have a really final decision ya know.
