The Summer Set – Back To The Start lyrics

We were just kids,
We were the rulers
We had the world, but no we never had enough
Your head on my chest,
I watched you sleeping,
Stayed awake and wondered what you're dreaming of.

Where did you go?
Gave you my heart,
Wrote you a note
You tore it apart
Take your time
Wait it out
'Til this is over

Tell me how long it takes,
To fill an empty heart,
To let it wash away and take it back, take it back.
Back to the way we burned
Like we were falling stars.
Tell me how long it takes to
Take it back; take it back, back to the start.

I miss your touch,
I miss the late nights.
I wish you never would have gotten on that plane.
Did you get scared
Or did I love you too much?
I guess that's why the call it a runway.

Where did you go?
I gave you my heart.
I'm by myself and we're apart.
Take your time,
Wait it out,
'Til this is over.

Tell me how long it takes,
To fill an empty heart,
(Can you fill an empty heart?)
To let it wash away and take it back, take it back.
Back to the way we burned
Like we were falling stars.
Tell me how long it takes to
Take it back; take it back, back to the start.

Wherever you go,
Whatever you chase,
No one could ever take your place.
I won't let you go,
Don't be the one that got away.

Tell me how long it takes,
To fill an empty heart,
(Can you fill an empty heart?)
To let it wash away and take it back, take it back.
Back to the way we burned
Like we were falling stars.
(Falling stars)
Tell me how long it takes to
Take it back; take it back, back to the start.

    This song is about the end of a relationship. The singer is still in love with his ex-girlfriend and is having trouble letting go. He wonders how long it's going to hurt and how long it will take him to get over her. There's also a line that hints that maybe he smothered her and she left because of it. He's also reluctant to let go because of everything they shared and it's about the pain of losing a relationship and trying to get past the pain.
