I can feel her breath
As she’s sleeping next to me
Sharing pillows and cold feet
She can feel my heart
Fell asleep to its beat
Under blankets and warm sheets
If only I could be in that bed again
If only it were me instead of him

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts
When you’ve seen it a million times?
Does he sing to all your music
While you dance to Purple Rain?
Does he do all these things
Like I used to?

Fourteen months and seven days ago
Oh, I know you know
How we felt about that night
Just your skin against the window
Oh we took it slow
And we both know
It should have been me inside that car
It should have been me instead of him in the dark

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts
When you’ve seen it a million times?
Does he sing to all your music
While you dance to Purple Rain?
Does he do all these things
Like I used to?

I know love
(I’m a sucker for that feeling)
Happens all the time, love
(I always end up feeling cheated)
You’re on my mind, love
(Oh darling, I know I’m not needed)
It happens all the time, love, yeah

Will he love you like I loved you?
Will he tell you every day?
Will he make you feel like you’re invincible
With every word he’ll say?
Can you promise me if this was right,
Don’t throw it all away?
Can you do all these things?
Will you do all these things
Like we used to?

Oh, like we used to
