And when we get home, I know we won't be home at all
This place we live, it is not where we belong
And I miss who we were in the town that we could call our own
Going back to get away after everything has changed

(Could you remind me of a time when we were so alive?)
Everything has changed
(Do you remember that? Do you remember that?)
Everything has changed
(Could you help me push aside all that I have left behind?)
Everything has changed
(Do you remember that? Do you remember that?)

So we stand here now and no one knows us at all
I won't get used to this
I won't get used to being gone
And going back won't feel the same if we aren't staying
Going back to get away after everything has changed

(Could you remind me of a time when we were so alive?)
Everything has changed
(Do you remember that? Do you remember that?)
Everything has changed
(Could you help me push aside all that I have left behind?)
Everything has changed
(Do you remember that? Do you remember that?)

It's taking up our time
It's taking up our time
It's taking up our time
It's taking up our time
We can't go back we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time
We can't go back we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time
We can't go back we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time, taking up our time

Could you remind me of a time when we were so alive?
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?

    I think its about the members of paramore,or mabey just someone,who misses their home town.They're saying how hard it is to have been gone for a long time nd then return,how its hard to stay in control.That causes them to want to avoide having to feel that.
