That time was then
Past not to return
A chance not taken
A lesson now learned

What could have been
Is pointless to guess
It will never be
It was always less

To dream of flying
Leaving life once more
Will forever be tempting
Will always have draw

The choice was easy
Barely even a thought
I left for home
I turned and walked

The people I love
A city I know
Why would I leave
Where could I go
