It’s way too late to forgive and forget
Keep wasting all my time
Holding back
All this time I knew you were going behind my back
I’m done

It’s too late to turn around
Your mistakes keep coming back
It’s too late this time

You think you’d notice and know that its over
You’re far too blind to see
All this time
Out here waiting all alone
To make it right
I’m lost

Are we regressing?
Are we in love?
It's so hard to say when you’re never around
You keep on saying we’ll be alright
It's just a lesson we need to learn
Can’t keep expressing
You’re breaking my heart
It's so depressing how bad it hurts
I keep on waiting for it to stop
I think its too late now
I’m stuck

It’s too late to turn around
Your mistakes keep coming back
Can’t face you one more time
Its too late this time

Roosevelt gives me some kind of self confidence. In their blurry songs i feel stronger and authentic

Had a moment with my Dad going back 10 years. We were into BRMC and Cooper Temple Claus, we watched them at every venue in the UK. Time passed, 10 yrs in fact. Im 36 now thinking those days of being into a band have gone. Until one day the PS4 and Switch wasnt doing it for me. Searched the net for a new band thinking nothing will top what me and my Dad had. Well well well.... I found Roosevelt, introduced my 15 yr old son and roles have reversed. All those amazing memories came back. You boys are amazing, not a single track on the album we skip. Absolutely in Ore at what you do. Keep up the great music and PLEASE come to Manchester UK. ( u know Oasis, Joy Division, Stone Roses, Smiths etc....). P.S best song on the Album. 👍👍

I love Washed Out, and to hear these amazing vocals with this beautiful music is a gift

I don't know what people are talking about. I think the collab is great and it's not lackluster and the vocals are certainly not terrible... I don't know I've been a big fan of both Washed out and Roosevelt but I guess some Roosevelt fans don't like Washed Out lol? I think theyre both great and this song is exactly what I expected!

Oh wow, I wouldn't have even dared to dream for such a collaboration. You guys need to do more!
