New School – Back In The Day lyrics

Ha ha-ha ha ha
(I wish you could take me away)
Back in the day

Ha ha-ha ha ha
I owe it to say
(I wish I was back in the day)

I don't know how to tell you
I don't know how to say what's on my mind
(I never meant to hurt you)
All I know is that you
Were the one I always wanted to find
(But something wasn't right)

Now and then, I reminisce a little
And everything I wanted in the past
How can I let such a good thing go
You treated me like I was your queen
We fell in love and we thought it would last
It's killing me
Do I have to let you go

I remember back in the day
Back in the day
I would look in your eyes
And your soul would take me away
And your soul would take me away
I owe it to say
I owe it to say
My first love love
Still has a hold on me

I feel so torn, I can't hide
I'm so sorry I even have to decide
(You deserve much more than this)
In my heart I know that
Someone knows who can soothe me inside
(But it's no use alright)

I know it hurts but I have to be honest
I don't respect I gotta tell you how I feel
How can I keep a secret like this
In the past when you asked if I let go
I wanted to say that I thought it was so
I really believed
But you saw right through me (yeah)

I remember back in the day (hey yeah)
Back in the day
I would look in your eyes
I look in your eyes
And your soul would take me away
And your soul would take me away
I owe it to say
I owe it to say
My first love
My first love still has a hold on me
Still has a hold on me

Feelings of this weigh down my mind
I'm always thinking about the past
Am I living a lie
Cause everytime I see your eyes
I feel the guilt
I know I'm wrong
But then what can I do
And when I'm thinking of you
Of what it is I ever missed
I question why
Even when I reminisced
But then I fight with myself
Still not right with myself
What do I do
Could someone please take me away
To back in the day

I remember back in the day
I remember
Back in the day
I would look in your eyes
Your eyes take me far away
And your soul would take me away
I owe it to say
I owe it to say
My first love
My first love still has a hold on me
Still has a hold on me

Ha ha-ha ha ha
(I wish you could take me away)
I wish you could take me away

Ha ha-ha ha ha
(I wish I was back in the day)
I was back in the day
