Lyrics[]

[Verse 1: Calum] I miss the days when we were young and not too wise Only doing what felt right With open hearts and open eyes I miss the days before I second guessed my life Wasn't always asking why I remember what it's like

[Pre-Chorus: Calum] Maybe it's just too late for the old me Maybe there's no point in holding on to something closely I should let it go, I should let it fade 'Cause nothing lasts forever and nothing stays the same

[Chorus: Michael with All] Why do we complicate it? Why do we get so jaded? Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back?) Why do we ruin our dreams? Why do we sabotage things? Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back) to 2011?

[Verse 2: Calum & Michael] I miss the days when we could live outside our heads Before we were all nervous wrecks But that's the thing about regret We used to talk about our lives And all the things we didn't have We fantasized about the future But now we dream about the past

[Pre-Chorus: Calum] Maybe it's just too late for the old me Maybe there's no point in holding on to something closely I should let it go (Go), I should let it fade (Fade) 'Cause nothing lasts forever and nothing stays the same

[Chorus: Calum with All] Why do we complicate it? Why do we get so jaded? Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (Can we go back?) Why do we ruin our dreams? Why do we sabotage things? Can we just go back, go back to 2011? (2011) To 2011

[Bridge: Calum] Back to the days when the days were better Back to the days when the days were better Back to the days when the days were better Back to the days when the days were better

[Outro: Calum & Michael] Back to the days when the days were better (Back to the days when the days were better) Back to the days when the days were better (Back to the days when the days were better) Back to the days when the days were better (Back to the days when the days were better) Back to the days when the days were better (Back to the days when the days were better)
