How many years have passed me by?
Since I've stopped to take a look at all the changes in my life.
So many friends have come and gone.
But all those summer nights still burn inside my lungs.
I hope you will not forget this either.
Forever.

And I bet I'm not the only one who thinks.
I'm stuck in the past with all the friends I am losing.
I regret not holding onto it closely.
The past is the past, and I am letting it kill me.

If I just had one wish I'll tell you what it'd be.
I'd bring back all the bands inside the dome.
And one last time we have a fucking show.
Life is what you make it, what you make it, and I believe in this.
What happened to the familiar faces that I've come to miss.

And I bet I'm not the only one who thinks.
I'm stuck in the past with all the friends I'm losing.
I regret not holding onto it closely.
The past is the past, and I am letting it kill me.

This sinking ship can't hold much water.
How much longer?
How much longer?
Until these lights are dead and gone.

I will scatter the ashes of what's left of this place that I call home.
And I will scatter the ashes of this formal life, this place that I call home,
And to fight this fatal attraction,
Just to sit inside and hang my head too low.
Living in the shadows of the scars.
The past defines just who we are.

And I bet I'm not the only one who thinks.
I'm stuck in the past with all the friends I am losing.
I regret not holding onto it closely.
The past is the past and I am letting it kill me.
The past lives.

    The meaning pretty much is where the singer (chris) has lived in the past a lot and he has lost touch with many friends he use to know and he said and I quote "this is about me living in the past a lot. There are a lot of things in my life that i can't let go of—especially from within the past five or six years. A lot of friends have come and gone, a lot of venues we started playing at are now shut down and everything is just different. I look forward to the future a lot, but at the same time, i feel so much regret for living as if things would never change. There's a reference in the second verse to a hometown venue called the dome, which is my way of letting our hometown bands and fans know that i miss them and those shows a lot. "
