What Was I To You? lyrics

There are different kinds of loneliness
And I have always been good
Good at raising up the drawbridges
Good at knocking on wood

I could make myself invisible
I could be a better liar
Anything would be better
Than to sit here and wonder

What was I to you? Some kind of life lesson?
Or something worth forgetting? Just a stray you let in?
What was I to you? A stain on your perfect record?
A slip, a blip, a wrong chord?

I get why you had to go
But the thing I really want to know
Is what was I to you?

I can't claim what I gave away
Keep the fire but not the flame
Feel my face on your face again
Hey, hey

You know I've told you this a thousand times
Except I never press 'send'
But anything would be better
Than to sit here and wonder

What was I to you? Some kind of life lesson?
Or something worth forgetting? Just a stray you let in?
What was I to you? A scratch on your favorite record?
A slip, a blip, a wrong chord?

I get why you had to go
But the thing I really want to know
Is what was I to you?

And just in case you were ever wondering
What you were to me
You were the biggest let-down, the one
Who got the power just by being so weak
You wasted all my time
And moved on, oh, at the speed of light
I don't know what to believe

What was I to you? A stain on your perfect record?
A slip, a blip, a wrong chord?

I get why you had to go
But the thing I really want to know
Is what was I?

I remember everything you said
That night inside our tent by the torchlight
Do you remember how I made you laugh?
You said, "I hope I die before you"

I remember walking through a forest
You said that you thought we might be dreaming
Then we made it to the top of a waterfall
And we jumped down hand-in-hand and screaming

Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling? (What was I to you?)
Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling? (What was I to you?)
Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
Remember the feeling? Remember the feeling?
