    Retroactive Jealousy

    [Intro]

    [Chorus]
    And I have waited
    All my life
    For this moment

    But you gave it away at all of fifteen, and I
    Know it doesn't change a thing, but it must have some meaning

    [Verse 1]
    So I think to myself, "words hurt too much,"
    But we have conversations of the deepest touch
    About rooftops to trampolines
    The party scene doesn’t really work for me
    So I use the bits and pieces to form memories
    Fantasies that don't belong to me
    Of things I wish were on the table
    But I wasn't able

    [Chorus]
    And I have waited
    All my life
    For this moment

    But you gave it away at all of fifteen and I
    Know it doesn’t change a thing, but it must have some meaning
    Following the footsteps of someone else
    Checking all the boxes that they have felt
    In due time, it must've had meaning
    Sober as a Saturday night
    With the lights shining bright on you

    [Verse 2]
    So you started from the bottom, made it to the top
    Your sophomore dreams delayed by the thoughts of
    Breathing (breathing), feeling (feeling), and
    Fading in and out

    I see it clear as dust like the dark before the dawn and it's
    Eating me away 'cause I know that it was on a
    Fleeting (fleeting) feeling (feeling) of
    Deep and desperate want

    [Chorus]
    And I have waited
    All my life
    For this moment

    But you gave it away at all of fifteen and I
    Know it doesn't change a thing but it must have some meaning
    Following the footsteps of someone else
    Checking all the boxes that they have felt
    In due time
    It must've had meaning
    Laying underneath the star-filled skies
    So the darkness is no disguise
    And you know this moment is right
    Yeah, it must have had meaning
    Building the bridges and burning
    Without the discerning of who (who you are)
    It must've had meaning
    Sober as a Saturday night
    With the lights shining down on you
