I don't wanna go to school today,
Because I'd rather stay at home.
The bells are all off, I fake a little cough,
Just so I can be alone.
I skip my first class, I forge a hall pass,
But still she finds a way to appear.
I avoid looking her in the eye, so I don't have to recite a goodbye,
But why is goodbye never clear?
Kisses slowly ended, our dates are never splendid,
I apologize I let you down.
(Bells ring, hear me sing, why I let you down)
I acknowledge that I dropped you, never meant to lose you,
But erase your memories and forget me now.
(Hurry and forget, I'm not worth it, forget me now)
When the bell rings, peer through the halls and glance,
At me still standing, in this academy.
The same academy where we had our first dance,
How you wrapped your arms around my neck and swayed with me.
So don't say I never gave us a chance,
Although, today seems to be quiet, surely.
And remember every moment we had in this romance,
Don't let it wash away with the sea.
I stop by your locker, open it up and I,
Steal your sweatshirt one last time.
Winter weather and movie nights, squeezing my hand from your moment of fright.
All the memories I keep reserved in my mind.
But our kisses slowly ended, hearts became unattended,
What happened to all of the love?
Arguments always left a scar, how'd we travel so far?
For once in my life, I'm giving us up.
Kisses slowly ended, our dates are never splendid,

Don't let it wash away with the sea.
When the bell rings,
Will you hear me sing?
Although we no longer speak,
You'll still mean everything to me.
