We had it all we were, young lovers, we were full of trust and faith 
We were dead set on makin' it last forever, forever and a day. 
I recall it was fall last year when, it started to die. 
You standing still as the temperature kills, the summer's thrills that were keeping it alive. 
The days got colder so I held you closer, in an effort to save us from time, 
Almost like a wind came and ruined the spark and left us in the dark. 

But hey, I coulda told you that I loved you and stayed, 
Around to rekindle the fire but I was late, 
On my return and now you've lost all faith. 
And I am the liar, 
I'm no longer what you require. 

I still feel you at night, turning in the sheets when I turn out the light 
That's how it goes, the ghost of your first love wont ever leave you til the day that you die 
I wont ever live down leaving her behind even if the choice was the right one 
It was a good thing staring me right in the face but I turned and ran away. 

Hey, I coulda told you that I loved you and stayed, 
Around to rekindle the fire but I was late 
On my return and now you've lost all faith. 
And I am the liar, 
I'm no longer what you require. 

Back then the days were so much faster, 
We were young, stubborn, and in love with disaster. 
You know you can't go back even if you try, 
You better just forget her won't you close the door on me 
Cause it'll never be the same 
It'll never be the way it was before 

Well hey, I coulda told you that I loved you and stayed, 
Around to rekindle the fire but I was late, 
On my return and so you've lost all faith. 
And I am the liar, 
Oh hey- I woulda told you that I loved you and stayed 
Around to rekindle the fire but I was late 
On my return and now you've lost all faith. 
In the dying light, I'm no longer what you require. 
I'm no longer what you require 
No longer
