‹ Prequel: My Saving Grace

Four Years

'Cause dear, four years hurts less than five.
I am sorry for all my crimes, and the wandering gaze of my unfaithful eyes.
It's clear I am an awful mess.
Soon the only thing I'll have left, is your memory and promises never kept.

Four years have passed since I ran to Chicago. Four years since I last saw them. I thought I'd never see them again. But, Pete's been hiding something. Something that'll change our lives forever.

I do not own Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, or anyone used in this story.
  1. 01.
    Smile real wide for the paparazzi everywhere.
  2. 02.
    I'm a sucker for their gossip.
  3. 03.
    I'll lay low and you'll never know.
  4. 04.
    I think I'm ready to leave, I'm ready to live. I'm ready to go.
  5. 05.
    I wonder what I'll find.
  6. 06.
    Four years hurts less than five.
  7. 07.
    I've hidden so well.
  8. 08.
    He sings a song for her he hopes she will know.
  9. 09.
    You got these little things that you've been running from.
  10. 10.
    It's the end of a broken heart. I went on without you.
  11. 11.
    I never needed your sympathy.
  12. 12.
    So I stare until you shout.
  13. 13.
    It hurts remembering how it felt to shut down.
  14. 14.
    These are fighting words I'm getting off my chest.
  15. 15.
    The memory convinced itself to tear me apart.
  16. 16.
    Don't sweat it, it's over now. Our time ran out.
  17. 17.
    Nothing more than a casual *** - isn't that just how we operate?
  18. 18.
    Don't go, I can't do this on my own.
  19. 19.
    Being alone is starting to take its toll.
  20. 20.
    Now you're famous, do you know the price you pay?
  21. 21.
    What are you waiting for? Kiss her, kiss her.
  22. 22.
    Get back to old days and old flames you never let burn out.
  23. 23.
    I do the best I can to ruin what I have.
  24. 24.
    I won't sing one single thing until we can get this right.
  25. 25.
    Here in my arms is right where you belong, slow dancing every night.
  26. 26.
    Oh, I only have eyes for you, and it's so true.
  27. 27.
    So come a little closer, tell me those three little words.
  28. 28.
    Just smile to forget the past, but on the inside, she's still torn apart.
  29. 29.
    These friends are golden.
  30. 30.
    Could you feel it when you broke into my head?
  31. 31.
    I won’t make the same mistakes. I’m dying not to hurt you.
  32. 32.
    I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me.
  33. 33.
    I'll keep you warm and won't ask you where you've been.
  34. 34.
    Boomerang my head back to the city I grew up in.
  35. 35.
    Boys like you are overrated.
  36. 36.
    It's gonna be one hell of a messy night.
  37. 37.
    I am sorry for all my crimes and the wandering gaze of my unfaithful eyes.
  38. 38.
    Pack my shit up and go. I'm getting wasted.
  39. 39.
    I just wanna drown you out with southern poison.
  40. 40.
    My lungs gave out as I faced the crowd.
  41. 41.
    I didn't mean to make you hurt.
  42. 42.
    Don't know the person inside it and that's never been any clearer.
  43. 43.
    We're sitting on the kitchen floor on a Tuesday afternoon.
  44. 44.
    We can't leave till you tell me everything. So come clean.
  45. 45.
    Give me therapy.
  46. 46.
    We should make a verbal agreement to only to kiss each other.
  47. 47.
    Is this what you call a family?
