If I could see you now the way I saw you then
All those years ago back when we were still friends
The light in your eyes as you laughed and you cried
Hear the fear in your voice as you stumbled over lies
Would I make the same mistakes and say the same things
Or could I change the future in which I now live
By becoming what I should not fighting to stay the same
Understand where I was going rather than in the past remain
Grow as you hoped to be the man you need
Let our future play out as it always should have been
The final note heard from our song should never have been the last
My dying breath I’d give right now to hold you in my grasp
But yet now when I see I can hold the past no more
The picture of what should have been my faith does still restore
