The Book of You & I

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Well, it all began in the back of her car
I was just sixteen, but I fell so hard
Well, the years went by and she held my heart
But her love ran dry and we fell apart

[Pre-Chorus]
I felt her growing distant
I knew her love was shifting
And all that I could say was

[Chorus]
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started, I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You didn't give a reason, I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

[Verse 2]
Well, I bought a pen and I turned the page
Then I wrote about how I wish you'd stayed
I said all the things that I never got to say
Maybe when it's done, I will feel okay

[Pre-Chorus]
That she had grown so distant
And that her love had shifted
I wish she felt the same

[Chorus]
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started, I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason, I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

[Bridge]
Don't tell me, tell me that you're leaving
My belly hurts and my heart is hardly beating right
I hate to beg, but I'll try one last time

[Chorus]
Don't tell me that it's over, the book of you and I
Now you've scribbled out my name
And you've erased my favorite lines
There were so many chapters that we never got to write
Like cereal for dinner and staying up all night
I remember where we started, I remember how you looked
But now I'm missing bits and pieces from the pages that you took
You never gave a reason, I'll forever wonder why
We never got to finish the book of you and I

About "The Book of You & I"

In an attempt to continue his push for more personal music and a deeper connection with his fans, Alec’s newest single is a ballad about a past relationship.

Alec talks about all of his favorite memories from a relationship he was in at a young age that he feels ended abruptly. He looks back at the relationship somewhat fondly and at all the things they promised to do while in love, but admits that it’s one of the hardest he’s had to get over.

As he watches his now ex move on and remove him from her life, he remains there, heartbroken and wishing that all of the promises that were made could have happened and gone “into the book”, creating another memory. The hardest part about moving on for him is watching her go on without ever knowing why she left him, once again bringing him back to all of his favorite memories, and the pain that comes without the relationship.
