Dear Dakota – Ode To An Ex lyrics

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

I should have told you the truth when
That's all of me you were asking
Please forgive me baby
Please forgive me

But you don't
You just turn your back and
I can't believe I let this happen
I'd scream your name
With my last breath
I bleed my heart
Till there's nothing left

And now I pray to the stars and say

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

I should have told you the truth when
You caught me when I was falling
Please forgive me baby
Don't regret me
I told you it's not like it was when
We were young and not yet so broken
Shattered pieces on the ground
That he can fix he don't know how

I paint myself in shades of black and gray
It feels like home since you walked away

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

Your trains left while I'm still here
As you move on I disappear

Your trains left while I'm still here
As you move on I disappear

Your trains left while I'm still here
(Why can't you... Come back to me... And I'll show that... I have changed)
As you move on I disappear
(Why can't you... Come back to me... I guess I changed a little to late)

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty

Whoa...
Take it back to the way it used to be
Whoa...
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty
Cause when you're in my arms life's not so empty
