She said promise you won’t forget who I am
When you finally take your words off of Instagram
Remember who it was you first told about your nan
And who it was around when you never had a plan
When they admire you for every sentence you drafted
For every penny, they flick into a fountain, you grafted
You work hard for it, don’t ever let them take it for granted
When you make it to the end, remember why you started
Will you remember the manor you were raised in?
Do you remember every run-down bar you had a rave in?
You might not remember every girl that you played with
But do you remember who’s bed you used to stay in?
It was me who was there when you never had a cigarette
Back before we had more then we could have ever dreamt
Before we felt the need to raise another drink to forget
Before the life, you glamourize, ever materialised with a pen
Don’t forget who read every word that you ever wrote
Who loved you for every line that you never spoke
Who accompanied your lonely heart, wherever you’d go?
I just want to know if you’ll forget the only friend you’ve ever known?
