As a movie plays, so are our memories, as remembered, just the same
All the while with the passing of years, we have changed
Looking at you, I can see the reflection of who I used to be
And I wonder, when you pass me by, if in me that too is what you see
Sometimes when I hear our song on the radio, I fight back tears
And for what, I’m not sure, because even if I could, I would not undo the years
That brought us to where we are now, and even though I’ve yet to understand how
I am breathing without you, living without you, because sometimes I hear the sound
Of my own heart breaking all over again. For the dreams we dreamed together
Believing that we were each other’s living, breathing forever.
But despite the fights to hold on, the fights to let go, it was not meant to be
And I walked away with your heart, and you mine, for you see
Love is love despite debate, opposition, trial, heartbreak, and fate
I’ll never comprehend why something so beautiful, could fade
And so quickly, maybe we were too slow to the fight to salvage
But would the salvage have been nothing but a pile of wreckage?
As I pass you today, I am taken back to yesterday, laughing and so in love
And I wonder if it takes you there too, because you avoid my eyes, looking ready to run
But life was the sweetest we’d ever known, there was no past, no future with you
Just the present, where every precious moment was treasured, not stale and past due.
But now you just half smile and ask how I’ve been, and we make small talk.
And as we part, it still feels strange, like walking away from one’s own heart.
If ever given the chance to go back, I’d follow the same path that lead me straight to you
And even if I could foresee the end ahead, I’d love you like it was all I was meant to do.
