# Acollective - Had It Once

November 16, 2015

## Lyrics

we had it once not long ago
i wasn't sure but now i know
what we lost and what we gained
i was standing at her place and i was calling out her name
once we're broke we play to win
keep it stored behind our eyelids and hide it deep within
forget to learn it's so far away
it's only for short while we should play it day by day

so much empty space too many loud unwelcome guests
and i fell down to my knees
i told her she'd be sorry that i'd never let her leave
I thought she knew thought she'd tell
i kept her boxed up in the attic to make sure that she stays well
we'll play it smart
ignore the tearing at the edges and the thawing of the heart

we got so old.
we got so old.
we got so old.

what you learned what we named
i knew we had it once and i thought you knew the same
please stop ripping up my chest
i got you motivating blinders leave them on when we undress
what is lost we'll
retrieve i'll keep
you underneath my mattress and i'll never let you breathe
now i'm sure
now i know
i promise you, now i'll never let you go

No I'll never let you go
no I'll never let you go
no I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
no I'll never let you go
I'll never let you
go.

no i'll never let you go.
