C Em F C

C                                                            Em
Oh, our futures were written with crayons in coloring books             
F                                                                C
It was misspelled and outside the lines and we loved how it looked
C                                                    Em
Like the crooked hem of your favorite childhood dress
        F                                       C
And the holes in my jeans from years of carelessness
     F                                               Am
I know since we've grown, we ache for those memories  
    F                                           C       Em            C
Honestly, nothing's even compared to you next to me, next to me

C                                                                      Em
When the words came to you for the first time, you knew you were hooked
        F                                                   C	
And the pride that you felt at the last page of your first book
C                                                        Em
And the bravery I forced when I sang to an audience of three
         F                                                        C
Well, it took a million wrong notes just to find a single melody and key
       F                               Am
I know since we've grown we plea for clarity
        F                                          C              Em
Honestly, nothing's ever made sense til you were next to me, next to me

F     Dm        C                 Em
If time is money, then I'll spend it all for you
F       Dm              C           Em
I will buy you flowers with the minutes we outgrew
F         Dm              C                 Em
I'll turn hours into gardens, planted just for us to take
F         Dm                 C
I'll be reckless with my days, building castles in your name

F                              Am
Since we've grown, we long for concrete things
F                                                        C               Em
Honestly, nothing's felt so sure than when you were next to me, next to me

C Em F C

C                                                                 Em
So lets cut down the red tape and gather up the pieces of our youth
Cause there's nothing in this world we can't fix with some scissors and glue
