NIKI – Before Lyrics

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 ya

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

Well, 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 it’s instant

And you say, “Let’s just see where this goes”

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

‘Cause I’m havin’ 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 (Ah, ah, ah)

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 wish her, “Good riddance”

Did anything ever really count, or was I just a two-year practice round?

 

You 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

Oh, I don’t know where to go

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

‘Cause I’m lookin’ at you and God knows you’re not mine anymore

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

 

(Ah, ah, ah)

Like they were before (Ah, ah, ah)

It’s almost just like how it was before (Ah, ah, ah)

But it’s not anymore
