Lyrics to The Book Of You & I
Well it all began in the back of her car
I was just 16 but I fell so hard
Well the years went by and she held my heart
But her love ran dry and we fell apart
I felt her growing distant
I knew the love was shifting
And all that I could say was

Don't tell me that it's over
The book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you erased my favourite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces
From the pages that you took
You didn't give a reason and I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

When I bought a pen
And I turned the page
And I wrote about how I wish you'd stay
I said all the things that I never got to say
Maybe when it's done I will feel okay
That she had grown so distant
And that her love had shifted
I wish she felt the same

Don't tell me that it's over
The book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favourite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces
From the pages that you took
You didn't give a reason and I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

[Bridge: unfinished]


Don't tell me that it's over
The book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you erased my favourite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started
I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces
From the pages that you took
You didn't give a reason and I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I
