lyrics

Could it be true
The past he never knew
His reflection in your eyes
Looking back in surprise

Searching for answers
Not knowing where to go
A letter whispers hope
A pink envelope

It’s so hard to go back to his mistakes
His lost loves a page full of heartbreak
If he just had known
How life felt alone
He’d go back and change everything

He’s up in the air
On his way to repair
A mysterious clue
He doesn’t know what to do

Each love a question
A different transgression
Interrupts the status quo
His age starts to show

It’s so hard to go back to his mistakes
His lost loves a page full of heartbreak
If he just had known
How life felt alone
He’d go back and change everything

His life a collection of scattered pieces
There’s nothing left to leave you
He tries his best to mend the fences
Since there is not way to undo

His story ends in the street
Hoping you’d be there to meet
But a stranger driving by
places doubt in his mind

It’s so hard to go back to his mistakes
His lost loves a page full of heartbreak
If he just had known
How life felt alone
He’d go back and change everything
