Lyrics

The sun still rises
But never shines as bright
The moon hangs hollow in the sky
Loneliness lingers at night

The distance between us
Grows farther everyday
It doesn’t feel like living
Just surviving the days

Nothing will ever
Be what we remember
I guess it’s always been that way

Nothing will ever
Be what we remember
It’s just so obvious now

We never said our last goodbyes
The thought keeps me up at night
We might never get the chance to try
To make up for lost time

And I don’t recognize my neighbors
All the fear in their eyes
Masked faces and strangers
We’re drowning alive

Nothing will ever
Be what we remember
I guess it’s always been that way

Nothing will ever
Be what we remember
It’s just so obvious now

And I’m wondering why we let the numbers get so high
Could this be a convoluted blessing in disguise
Will we learn to live larger
Give thanks to our mother
Be selfless, not selfish
And love a little harder
I wanna love a little harder

‘Cus nothing will ever
Be what we remember

Nothing will ever
Be what we remember
