“Holiday” Lyrics

Love Hilary Duff’s new song, “Holiday“, as much as I do?! Well, here are the lyrics. According to Wikipedia, “Holiday” was written by Hilary Duff with help from her sister Haylie and by Ryan Tedder. Tedder produced the track. Part of the track makes reference to Hilary’s past single, “Beat of my Heart“.

“Holiday” by Hilary Duff (“Best Of” Album) Lyrics

I remember summers, you and me lasting forever
Holidays come and we’d never, never ever be apart
I remember spending, all of my time, every minute
The two of us we had our own rhythm, in tune with the beat of my heart

Now in the summer (I miss you)
And in the winter (I miss you)
It don’t matter (what I do)
Since you went away, since you went away
Now in the summer (I miss you)
And in the winter (I miss you)
It don’t matter what I do
It don’t matter what I say
You left it

[CHORUS]
You took a holiday from us
Took a trip and left your love
If your heart wasn’t down forever
You should have told me where it was
You took a holiday from me
I guess you needed to be free
Would have loved you with no measure
And now you got me asking
Where (where did you go huh?, where did you go huh?)
Where (where did you go huh?, where did you go huh?) did you go?
(where did you go huh?) Where did my heart go?
You took a holiday
Where (where did you go huh?, where did you go huh?)
Where (where did you go huh?, where did you go huh?) did you go?
Why did you leave?
This ain’t no holiday for me

Walkin’, watching you leave there’s no talking
Back in my arms it’s so shocking, guess forever was just a dream
I thing we could have made it, but our history now is fading
My image of the future is changing and baby damn that thing called destiny, got the best of me

Now in the summer (I miss you)
And in the winter (I miss you)
It don’t matter what I do
It don’t matter what I say
You left it

[CHORUS REPEATS]

If I could take a step back, make it turn out different
I would hide those bags, and I’d tear that ticket
Never thought you and me ‘d be done in a minute
Now I’m making new plans and you’re just not in it
[REPEAT SECTION]

(Where did you go?)

You took a holiday from us
Took a trip and left your love
If your heart went down forever
Should’ve told me where it was
You took a holiday from me
I guess you needed to be free
Would have loved you with no measure
And now you got me asking

Where did you go? (Where?) Where did you go? (Where?)
Where did you go? (Where?) Where did you go? (Where?)
Where did you go? (Where?) Where did my heart go?
You take a holiday

Where did you go? (Where?) Where did you go? (Where?)
Where did you go? (Where?) Where did you go? (Where?)
Where did you go? (Where?) Why do you leave?
This ain’t a holiday for me
