Paramore - Grudges Lyrics




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 a while
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 to 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?

Paramore Grudges Comments
  1. Poderes ao extremo

    I LOOVE THIS SONG

  2. [broken machine]

    I wish pop music was always this good!

  3. barb d

    my mom: comes in and insults me cause she’s mad

    my mom: *leaves the room*

    me: *turns the volume up*

    the song: *laugh till we cry*

  4. Rain5155

    Coming back to After Laughter album everyday is just unleashing all the bad things that are on mind

  5. Matamela Ramovha

    paramore i have to say: YOU....ARE.....MY.....PARAMORE

  6. LineC Art

    I saw so many comments from people they said they prefered their previous albums (pop- punk, pop- rock)... For sure i love them more my style but anyway, they're right to change! And that kind of style, it's pretty cool to tell the truth! For me, i think they changed for the best. It is, yeah, more pop-funk and kind of music from 80's but i pretty like it. But obviously, the base has always been pop so...

  7. Andrea Bathory

    What the fuck is this shiet

  8. Octavio Salinas

    2013 vibes

  9. Maximiliano Porres

    Como que me agarró extrañitis :(

  10. Nom De Plume

    Strange how we found ourselves exactly where we left off
    I know you're shaking my hand like it is the first time

    Could it be that I've changed or did you?

  11. et cetera

    This album makes me feel high.

  12. Yen Gal

    Deep down I wish this was about Josh but I know, it's Zacs.

  13. Harry Cox

    The message of this song is very true. You have forgive and move on.

  14. Katie Ward

    ‘Grudges’ and ‘Forgiveness’ are so contradictory. Hayley, what do want us to do?!?
    ‘Can’t keep holding on to grudges’
    ‘You want forgiveness but I can’t give you this’

  15. Pablo Orellana

    🤴🏼🤴🏼🤴🏼 best song ! I’m recaunting all my faults . Stop asking why we have to wait so much time . Can’t keep holding on to grudges 😇🌾

  16. Alex King

    Slightly influenced by The Cure

  17. M.A. __ C.

    Should have been a single

  18. Cedrick Francisco

    The chorus reminds me of "oh glory" by panic!

  19. hoyhyo

    Stop asking why.
    Stop asking why I have to waste so much time!
    I REFUSE to save time with Locals!111

    [Bridge: Zac Farro]
    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?

    Could it be that I've changed?
    Could it be that I've changed? Or did you?

  21. Yves Mamboundou

    je suis fou de cette chanson

  22. Shina Omisanya

    1:33😭

  23. ALBINO ENRICO JOSIAH

    I like the 80's high school movie soundtrack vibe to this

  24. dogboy0912

    Paramore was a group of homeschooled church kids who played at youth events around town and really truly did grow up together as friends. The band break ups and shifts cut deep when you realize it's not just a shifting of famous musicians. Paramore is from Franklin Tennessee and just happens to be on the world stage. It's really always been a pretty small # of people involved with it. Paramore is making good music, but if Josh came back, that would be a miracle. The gang would be together again.

  25. 08bourquem

    This is like a pop smith songs through a hardcore punk filter... WAT

  26. Katherin Bonilla

    Amo esta canción <3

  27. [broken machine]

    I get summery vibes from this song and a lot of the album, love it.

  28. Josh Forest

    Love this racey style like old Bloc Party

  29. Sad Boi

    Nice ALVVAYS song

  30. Aa Ds

    Paramore will always be a nostalgic childhood band that I loved and will continue to keep listening to indefinitely. Hailey Williams is a freaking legend.

  31. Sk8er Crushcrushcrush

    PARAMORE MORE THAN U KNOW

  32. Véia Roqueira

    Someone think this album is better than any older? My first impression was: "nah", maybe I'll like more in the future, now I'm not used to it.

  33. Makayla Patrick

    This is a bop

  34. Jose Joaquin Claveria

    after 26, their songs have a more optimistic vibe than just crippling depression

  35. Ayesha Sami

  36. Gabriel Corporan Tejera

    I sense a replacement for Where The Lines Overlap in this song. It's so pleasant and bright, gives happiness very easily...

  37. Charlie Lenk

    This is the first song I've ever heard by Paramore (discovered via a clip of one of their shows last year) and oh, how near-flawless it is. Thanks for inadvertently leading me here, Tegan and Sara.

  38. caleb

    PLAY AT 1.5x SPEED

  39. Mis Anthrope

    No matter which era, Paramore will always be the Paramore I will forever love. Oh god im crying....

  40. ghost

  41. Beans

    how tf do you hold onto garages

  42. Outstanding Innovation

  46. Justine Benmark Abrera

    I love this song the most (in after laughter). :(

  47. Jordi Danen

    0:06 That intro is such a child''like thing. Sounds so youthful!

  48. Ur a wizard Harry

    Everyone in the comments screaming about how this is about Zac and Haley and now I have to look back and see what happened to them. Damnit guys, I have exams tmmr I can't do this!!😭

  49. Insomnus_

    Zac admitted he didn't know that the song was about him until that behind the brand interview they had lmao

  50. J C

    I'm very addicted to listening to these songs while I look at the ceiling

  51. NachoFreaK

    Best song from After Laughter.

  52. Izzy Avalos

    This is my favorite song from Paramore! They are so good! Hayley is a wonderful singer! And I love their album after laughter!

  53. Joinner Moreno Bertel

    uno ciertamente crece con la banda, que importa si ya no son como antes... basta con que disfrutes sus canciones.

  54. ayeloysius. yu

    Who's with me? #parahome

  55. diego killua

    Omg this is so fucking... Pop ._.

  56. Nicole O

    I love how people are interpreting this as a weird, stalker kind of song when this about letting go of grudges that Hayley and Zac might have had after the initial split lol

  57. SapphireTheGr8

    And people say paramore sucks

  58. Paramore

    join us at Paramore Art + Friends in Nashville, Tennessee on September 7th - visit http://artandfriendsnash.com for tickets!

    This album follows on from self titled album the feel of it. Especially this song it reminds me of a song from self titled album so it is still in the same direction of last album which is amazing. 😃😄🎉🎧🎶

    I'm a black dude who mainly listens to rap, but for some reason your music yanks my ears and makes me enjoy it so much

  59. Ironinquisitor

    Love the 80s New Wave sound.

  60. Sandro Danica

    it's not the matter of how many fans you have. it's the empact on some people and how you saved them with these kind of music. thank God you exist Paramore!

  68. The Pretty of the Odd

    exZACtly where we left

  69. Shawn Farley

    If youre going to tell the truth, be funny, or theyll kill you.

  70. Wagner Maurente

    0:43 to 0:48 I can swear I've already listened to this exact melody in another random song

  71. Adrián Huamán

    I imagine if this became the next music video, a one where Hayley and Zac appear because the song talks about them, it would be fantastic!

  78. 16 Janeiro 1993 RocketMan

    I hate the word grudges it makes me feel sad

  79. Sigfried Bigcheese Van MemeLord II

    only track from After Laughter that I really like

  80. Tanner Poole

    This sounds like a teen nick intro song about struggling teens in high school.

  81. Emanoel Fonteles

    Hayley is saying she won't keep screaming in her songs anymore, i guess...

  82. NeoKokoro20

    This song reminds me of "Friday I'm in Love" by The Cure.

  83. grace c. t

    The more I listen to the album the more I actually fall in love with it.

  85. h a r p e r

    I’ve never been one to be an “oldschool” person when it comes to music, but I’m LOVING the whole 80s vibe of this album.

  86. Beatriz Uzai

    Could it be that I’ve changed?

  87. Chole

    ok but why aren't y'all talking about them synths in the beginning???
