CHLÖE HOWL – 23 Lyrics

23 Lyrics by CHLÖE HOWL


Guess we grew out of running away from reality
When the high doesn’t soften the lows like it used to do 
You remember the old me, remember the mornings too 
The memory has you fooled
I swear I get it

We were something great man we could make em jealous 
You were into fuckboys like it was a fetish 
Selfish and we drunk enough to forgive anything but ahhh 
Now you’re on the payroll in another city
Looking at the past but there’s no future in the girl you used to be 

Cos honey in the suburbs we 
Had all we’d ever need
To live forever and ever 

But here we are at twenty three
Always thought that we’d be
Somebody better 

One day when we have it all 
Cos we ain’t going nowhere no way 
We’ll be unforgettable 
But it’s hard to believe when
We are twenty three 
And we swore that we’d be somebody better 
It’s never
How we dreamt it together 
Uh huh 

You know things could be easier if we gave into it
If we accepted our fate and made peace with the lines we tow
But then look in the mirror and see someone you don’t know
It’s in our control
But still I get it 

We were something great man we could make em jealous 
You were into fuckboys like it was a fetish 
Selfish and we drunk enough to forgive anything but ahhh 
Now you’re on the payroll in another city
Looking at the past but there’s no future in the girl you used to be 

Cos honey in the suburbs we 
Had all we’d ever need
To live forever and ever 

But here we are at twenty three
Always thought that we’d be
Somebody better 

One day when we have it all 
Cos we ain’t going nowhere no way 
We’ll be unforgettable 
But it’s hard to believe when
We are twenty three 
And we swore that we’d be somebody better 
It’s never
How we dreamt it together 
Uh huh 

The photographs are clear so you
See the memory more than here baby

But I can’t hate these years though they
Tear apart they’ve kept you near to me 

Cos honey in the suburbs we 
Had all we’d ever need
To live forever and ever 

But here we are at twenty three
Always thought that we’d be
Somebody better 

One day when we have it all 
Cos we ain’t going nowhere no way 
We’ll be unforgettable 
But it’s hard to believe when
We are twenty three 
And we swore that we’d be somebody better 
It’s never
How we dreamt it together 
Uh huh
