- Lyrics(Woah woah woah-oh)
(Woah woah woah-oh)
Not coming back but I can't stop waiting
Give me a minute while my heart stops breaking
Give me a minute while I fix my tie
- Lyrics(1, 2, 3, 4!)
Celestine, my self-esteem is at an all time low
I'm holding on with both hands, but I'm ready to let go
Then I hear your voice and centuries of misery can't stop me
I know the night is young, b-b-b-but tomorrow we might not be
- LyricsSo if you want me,
You better come and find me
This time don't leave it
Another seven years
I remember when we'd stay up just to stay up

A time that we once knew
Been thinking for a while
That it's here if we want it
If we know that we want it
