The Nights We Lived

Eli Lieb


When I was 20 I moved to New York City
Couldn't wait to feel the pavement beneath me
Couldn't wait to act just like a fool
Tripping home with someone who was pretty
Not going to sleep until the light hits the city
And waking up in the afternoon

Cause those were the days to remember
And those were the nights we lived
Making our lives to remember and say
Those were the nights we lived

When I was 25 I buried my father
But before he severed his karma
There was one thing he said to me
He said live your life like there's nobody stronger
Live in Love with your mom and your brother
Cause nothing lasts except the memories

Cause these are the days to remember
And those were the nights we lived
Making our lives to remember and say
Those were the nights we lived

When I was 29 I fell in love with a monster
Hidden in the sly cloak of a charmer
Plotting to destroy all of me
That's when I learned what love and abuse was (yeah)
I think I still have a few of his scars
If you look closely you can
But those were the days to remember
And those were the nights we lived
Making our lives to remember and say
Those were the nights we lived

Cause these are the days to remember
And those were the nights we lived
Making our lives to remember and say
Those were the nights we lived

Cause these are the days to remember
And those were the nights we lived
