Strange how we found ourselves exactly where we left off
I know you're shaking my hand like it is the first time
Are we alright?
Are you recounting all my faults?
And are you racking your brain just to find them all?
Could it be that I've changed? Or did you?

Stop asking why
Why we had to waste so much time
Well, we just pick up, pick up and start again
'Cause we can't keep holding on to grudges

Time is a bastard
I won't break my neck to get around it
But aren't we so brave to give up a fight
And let the years go by without us
'Cause now I feel you by my side
And I don't even care if it's been awhile
I can feel that we've changed and we're better this way

Stop asking why
Why we had to waste so much time
Well, we just pick up, pick up and start again
'Cause we can't keep holding on to grudges

And if you wanna call me up or come over
Come on, we'll laugh 'till we cry
Like we did when we were kids
'Cause we can't keep holding on to grudges

Why did it take so long?
Why did it take so long?
Why did it take us so long to just let it go?
Why did it take us so long?
Stop holding on

Stop asking why
Why we had to waste so much time
Well, we just pick up, pick up and start again
'Cause we can't keep holding on to grudges

And if you wanna call me up or come over
Come on we'll laugh 'till we cry
Like we did when we were kids
'Cause we can't keep holding on to grudges
We can't keep holding on to grudges
Could it be that I've changed?
Could it be that I've changed?
Could it be that I've changed?
Could it be that I've changed? Or did you?

Song facts

[Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe:]
Hayley: "Grudges" needed to happen so bad. I wanted to write about Zac, I just knew it. Somehow that didn't paralyze me, it just happened. I sat up in my bed all day singing to myself. But I just knew I wanted it to be about the band. I knew how good Zac's voice would sound on it because his voice is brilliant. And I just thought, "Man, I don't know if he'll do this, but if he would do this…"
