Alexander 23 – High School Lyrics

High School by Alexander 23


We were high school friends and high school lovers
Got a fifth of jack from your big brother
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Didn’t know that cop was undercover
‘Til he pressed your hands against each other, oh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Because you were my very fist love
And I thought you’d be my last
‘Til I found out that days go fast

How did we get here?
How do we get back?
Wish I could do it all again
We were just kids then
Doing our best when
All of the rest got in the way
And I miss my best friend
Drunk at the dead end
All of the stress, we’re bound to break …
How did we get here?
How do we get back?

We were high school friends and high school lovers
When the bell would ring we’d find each other, oh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh, imagine if we went to the same college
Would we still lock lips
Or maybe you would hate my guts
Oh no, we’ll never know
And you were my very fist love
And I thought you’d be my last
‘Til I found out that days go fast

How did we get here?
How do we get back?
Wish I could do it all again
We were just kids then
Doing our best when
All of the rest got in the way
And I miss my best friend
Drunk at the dead end
All of the stress, we’re bound to break
How did we get here?
How do we get back?
Oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh

Take me back to your basement where we’re still face-to-face
And your mascara’s on my nose
But you look good in all my clothes
Take me back to your basement where we’re still face-to-face
And I can taste the coke and rum
That you borrowed from your mum
Take me back to your basement where we’re still face-to-face
And your mascara’s on my nose
But you look good in all my clothes
Take me back to your basement where we’re still face-to-face
And I can taste the coke and rum
That you borrowed from your mum

How did we get here?
How do we get back?
