about

The music to this song was written by Jesse in high school. "High School Sweetheart" quickly became the working title of the song for practice and Tanya wrote the lyrics based on the working title.

lyrics

We walked through the pissy streets of LA
Not a care in the world
What they think or say
I remember when you held my hand
It was shaky, oh yeah

I denied the things that I was feeling inside
It was easier to lie, than to admit we could try
I just want you to know and I think that I’m sure
That I don’t want to burn my bridges

Take me back where everything started
Talk to me like you haven’t before
Please pretend just once that we are as in love
Like we used to be back in high school
When you were my high school sweetheart(x4)

I’m sorry things didn’t turn how you wanted
The hearts that were once are dead
And are left unhearted
I’m sorry to dump all this shit on you
Honestly is there something else I can do?
I fucked it up
I fucked us up
I let everything slip from my hands
You fucked it up
You fucked us up
You let everything slip from your hands

Take me back where everything started
Talk to me like you haven’t before
Please pretend just once that we are as in love
Like we used to be back in high school
When you were my high school sweetheart (x4)

I’ll be dammed if I let things get so cold
Fix myself just to patch this hole
Honestly do you think we can start this over?
When I’ve seen it happen a million times before
High school sweetheart (x4)
