You were the one
That I couldn't find
Hidden away
In the depths of my mind

[Chorus]
Why did I let you go you're to good to be true
I messed it up and now I don't know what to do
We ran in circles and wasted time
From right to wrong, from right to wrong
If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now it's all collapsed - in my lap

I overthought
So I locked up my heart-yeah
There you stood
Your blue eyes hidden beneath your hood

[Chorus]

My mind is blank just like a clean slate
Will I need another guy with the same blue eyes
And the same name with the Converse shoes I gave
Will he have the same laugh
Wear my homemade hat
Bet I'll make another mistake
And think he's just another - fake

Wish I could erase the past now
Wish I could bring you back

If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now it's all collapsed - in my lap (repeat)
