The dreams I had when I was young Were like a race I could never run I'd stay up through the night to see the sun But I was wasting time I took a train to a barren town Got caught up in feeling down I kept on waiting for a turnaround But it never arrived Now I can tell you just what went wrong I once thought things were working out But it didn't last for long Now I can tell you just why I'm here Everything I say and do Is cloaked in doubt and fear I had a friend who I pushed away I was in love, she didn't feel the same Then she left for good and I remained On the losing side The past has given so perspective, so... I understand the things I used to know Nothing stays the same, but so it goes I know I still have time Now I can tell you just what went wrong I once thought things would never change That's why I sing these songs Now I can tell you just why I'm here Everything I say and do Is a fight against the fear

I don't have much control over my memories It seems like they come and go almost as they please And no matter what I do to try and frame them The picture's never what it seems Everything fades in time Moments that were ours are now only mine And I can't decide if that makes them worthless or if I should try to keep them alive Everything fades given time Moments that were ours are now only mine And I just don't know if that makes them worthless or if I should fight to keep them alive

It's been a long time since I last saw you I know I'll never see you again No matter what's been won or lost Some things will always remain, so... Here are my last kind words to you Take care of yourself in all you do Don't forget to be honest and true And let your inner light carry you through They'll be times when everything feels wrong When that happens remember this song If you need the strength to start all over again, then... Look inside yourself my beautiful friend And remember. Please remember... That if the sun gets too bright Or it's a dark lonely night I will always be right there with you Because I love you
