Lyrics: Looking Back

I remember the times

We used to stay up all night

Not a care in the world

The future looked so bright

Growing older's not an easy thing to do

But I'd be alright

Because I'd do it with you

But how could I know

About the secrets you keep

Hiding all that darkness

In your heart so deep

If you gave me a chance

I would've held your hand

We could face it together

I would understand

Sometimes life's not what we expect to be

But you didn't have to give it up and leave

If you gave me time

I could have known

I'd have stood by your side

We would have held our own

I'd have stood by your side

You didn't have to go

Now that you've said goodbye

I have to stand alone

As I pick up the pieces

Of my broken life

I can't fit them together

I can't make it right


All my memories are fading to the past

But I can't let go

And face the aftermath

And though I've tried

To shed the blame

It doesn't matter if I feel the pain

And as my walls

Come crumbling down

It's hard to rebuild

When you're not around

Sometimes life's not what we expect to be

But you didn't have to give it up and leave

If you gave me time

I could have known

I'd have stood by your side

We would have held our own

I'd have stood by your side

You didn't have to go

Now that you've said goodbye

I have to stand alone
