Lyrics Before NIKI



Lyrics Before - NIKI


You hid me in your dorm room

It was Halloweekend, I just flew

across the globe, 22 hours just to see you

Just to barely fit on your twin-sized bed

and talk about your cool new friend

who I never met

who you dated as soon as I left


Carolina autumn

It had been a year since I saw you, since we

Ended it, had a year to grow into the girl you always wanted

now we’re holding hands, as not quite friends, but not quite lovers,

but we’ll just pretend

You say “it’s complicated to make amends”

Well is that the way that we’re headed then?


And you couldn’t answer me

Though you could pull me in while I brushed my teeth and let your hands both freely speak like I wasn’t ever gonna leave


You were all I’d ever known

And now I’m supposed to love you from a distance, like it’s nothing like its instant

and youuuu say “let’s just see where this goes”

And I don’t know how or why you seem just fine coz I’m having to grasp that you’re somehow not mine anymore

It’s so cruel how things are only almost like they were before


(ah ah ah) Like they were before

(ah ah ah) Like they were before

(ah ah ah) Like they were before


We walk downtown and it’s charming

You’re alarmingly disarming

Yeah we’ve got 48 hours left

before I fly back to my death

while you stay just fine and feel alive

South of the Mason-Dixon line

where everyone closes shop at 9,

where you could somehow finally find


what you were desperately looking for

Funny how you thought that was gonna be New York

with our chalkboard walls and slanted floors

Oh, we could’ve had that and so much more


Ask your new lover what it’s like to be given

a real fighting chance before you bid her good riddance

Did anything ever really count

or was I just a two-year practice round


Youuuu were all I’d ever known

And now I’m feeling stupid, you’re forbidden

They say yeah we were something,

too bad we were children

Ooooh I don’t know where to go

and I don’t know how or why you seem just fine

coz I’m looking at you & God knows you’re not mine anymore

It’s so cruel how things will never be the way they were before


Like they were before

It’s almost just like how it was before

But it’s not anymore
