Before you I had never been so low

Before you I could play the radio without memories

Before you I could fall without reserve

Without reserve

Before you I never hid what I felt

Before you my feeling never had to be held

Before you nobody ever worried about me

Before you I always believed what I see

Before you I could talk about love

Talk about love

 

But now after you I remember all this

After you these feelings I will never miss

After you I cry myself to sleep

After you I never let myself get too deep

After you I remembered I am a screw up

After you I quit before I gain too much

And after you I choose to never love

To never love

 

I almost forgot what I didn’t know before you

But thanks to you I remembered what I didn’t know

Before you I had never been so low

Before you I could play the radio without memories

Before you I could fall without reserve

Without reserve

 

But now after you I hate all memories of you

After you I am stuck in this mess, unsure what to do

After you I learned I will always be alone

After you my heart jumps at the ring of the phone

After you I can’t even hear your name

And now after you I wish you’d never came

Never came

 

Before you I never hated anyone

I guess I learned I would never have won

Before you Vegas was just another city

Before you I just laughed at their pity

 

But after you I learned they were right

I should have listened to her that night

You were just my last mistake

I just realized it too late

Now I know to keep my distance

When they say run, to always listen

After you I remembered why I never love

Why I never love

Why I never love
