Video

Just the other day
I was watching a home video
Of a young me at a party
Surrounded by my many friends

And in the video
I was happily dancing around
While the DJ played my favourite sounds
But inside, I was sad

Four months from then
I had lost all my friends
And I made a bad choice
And moved in with a boy
Oh how I wish I could go
Into that video
And give myself some good advice

If I could go
Back in time
I’d say stop and take a look around don’t do what you’re about to do
Don’t throw life away to make him stay

In the video
I was putting on a brave face
I’d had my heart broken yet again
I wasn’t really having fun

And in the video
No one knew what I was going through
I danced alone because I needed to, I had to hide the pain

Four months from then
I was broken and spent
And life had changed forever
It wasn’t very clever
How I wish I could go
Into that video
And give myself some good advice

If I could go
Back in time
I’d say Stop and take a look around don’t do what you’re about to do
Don’t throw life away to make him stay

If I could go
Back in time
I’d say stop and take a look at just you how lucky you are
There will be no easy way to make him stay

Don’t throw your life away
To make him stay
There’ll be no easy way

CHORUS

Don’t throw your life away
To make him stay
There’ll be no easy way
To make him stay
