“Remind Me” Lyrics

We didn’t care if people stared
We’d make out in a crowd somewhere
Somebody’d tell us to get a room
It’s hard to believe that was me and you
Now we keep saying that we’re OK
But I don’t want to settle for good not great
I miss the way that it felt back then
I wanna feel that way again
Been so long that you’d forget
The way I used to kiss your neck
Remind me, remind me
So on fire, so in love
Way back when we couldn’t get enough
Remind me, remind me
Remember the airport dropping me off
We were kissing goodbye and we couldn’t stop
I felt bad cause you missed your flight
But that meant we had one more night
Do you remember how it used to be
We’d turn out the lights and didn’t just sleep
Remind me baby remind me
Oh so on fire so in love
That look in your eyes that I miss so much
Remind me, baby remind me
I wanna feel that way
Yeah I wanna hold you close
Oh if you still love me
Don’t just assume I know
Oh baby remind me, remind me
Do you remember the way it felt?
You mean back when we couldn’t control ourselves
Remind me, yeah remind me
All those things that you used to do
That made me fall in love with you
Remind me, oh baby remind me
Yeah you’d wake up in my old t-shirt
All those mornings I was late for work
Remind me, oh baby remind me yeah
Oh baby remind me baby remind me
Yeah you’d wake up in my old t-shirt
Oh, baby remind me
