For the record 
You oughta know
You wasn't thinking 
When you let me go

But whatever 
That's how it goes
Win some you lose some
And others you hold in your heart 

Why it gets so hard
 Tears you all apart 
Even though you try to let go
No, no, no

 Suddenly you're here
And it's so surreal 
And I don't know
What the deal

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
 Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
 Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
 Feels like, the first time

Them other irregularities
They can't compete with MC 
The whole entire world can tell
That you love yourself some me

 People see ya know
 Asking all about 
Me and how they always thought we
Were so perfect together

Let's re-write the end
 Start over again 
And it's gon go better now

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
 Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
 Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
 Feels like, the first time

For the record 
You'll always be a part of me
No matter what you do
And for the record 
Can't nobody say
I didn't give my all to you

And for the record 
I told you underneath the stars 
That you belong to me
For the record 
It's obvious that
We just can't let go of us, honey 

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
 Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
 Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
 Feels like, the first time

'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
 Feels like the first time
Give me one good reason why
We can't just press rewind

I don't wanna spend my life
 Thinking what it could've been like
If we had another try (one time)
Like back in the day
That look on your face
 Feels like the first time

For the record, baby
Now you know, baby
