Lyrics to Sweeter in History by Gabriella Cilmi

It all looked so good in your memory
But it didn't taste as sweet as it was meant to be
How did I end up caught between two cities?

Heaven knows that now I'm so out of touch
Lost in time need to find, wanna feel that rush
Still hear your whisper in my ear Like you did before

[Chorus:]
Oh, I heard you didn't get what you came for, baby
I heard it wasn't all you thought it would be
Time is a healer, but sometimes, baby
Some things are sweeter in history,
Sweeter in history

Lord knows I tried but I can't let go
Stuck hanging on to something that we used to know
You never wake the dead while they're sleeping

You show up thinking we can pick up where we left before
I hate to tell you this but only ghosts can walk through walls
Wishful thinking never took you where you need to go

[repeat chorus]

Oh there's a reason why I locked you away
Because I'm trying to keep the memory the same
Too good to be true, I knew
I don't know what you're hoping to find
Oh, did you think that I'd just fall into line
With your perfect design
And everything would just be how it used to be?

Sweeter in history [x4]
