It's been a while since the two of us talked About a week since the day that you walked Knowing things would never be the same
With your empty heart and mine full of pain

So explain to me, how it came to this
Let's take it back to the night we kissed It was Dublin city on a Friday night
With vodkas and coke, I was Guinness all night 
We were sitting with our backs against the world Saying things that we thought but never heard
Who would have thought it would end up like this?

But everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on
Was trying to take it back before it all went wrong  Before the worst Before we met Before our hearts decided it's time to love again Before today Before too long
Let's try and take it back before it all went wrong  There was a time that we'd stay up all night Best friends, yeah, talking til the daylight Took the joys alongside the pain
With not much to lose but so much to gain

Are you hearing me? 'Cause I don't wanna miss
That you would drift on memory bliss
It was Grafton street, on a rainy night
I was down on one knee and you were mine for life

We were thinking we would never be apart With your name tattooed across my heart Who would have thought it would end up like this?

But everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on
Was trying to take it back before it all went wrong  Before the worst Before we met Before our hearts decided it's time to love again Before today Before too long
Let's try and take it back before it all went wrong 
If these clouds don't clear Then we'll rise above it, we'll rise above it
Heaven's gate is so near, come walk me through Just like we used to, just like we used to, yeah

Let's take it back before it all went wrong  Before the worst Before we met Before our hearts decided it's time to love again Before today Before too long
