When I look back and grin

About that time you shed your hoody to give us a seat

You leaned your head on mine

As we shared secrets so a love we could begin

Inside your arms my heart by yours did dwell

Your lips touched my forehead

As you told me you would be my comforter

So I let you look in my eyes as I fell under your spell

 

I write it down so I know

The facts are in my words

What you did, the pain you brought

I’ll endure only one blow

When I miss the memories we made

And the promise we laced in our fingers

I’ll read this and remember you’re afraid

You let it win, and it won’t fade.

No, you won’t fade.

 

But I turned when you moved to kiss

I told you I was sorry, that I wanted you too

Little did I know that it would be the last

We never had a chance at bliss

Once in a while I wonder if we tried

What we may find in what we started

If we could still be what we need to thrive

All the goods from our hands we’d supplied

 

I write it down so I know

The facts are down in my words

What you did, the pain you brought

I’ll endure only one blow

When I miss the memories we made

And the promise we laced in our fingers

I’ll read this and remember you’re afraid

You let it win, and it won’t fade.

No, you won’t fade.

 

But I won’t let myself get in that red car

You revved your engines then said not ready

The gun went off, and you idled

Without passing the starting line, we can’t go far

My cries maintain to maintain the bond only echo

So how can I know what you mean

You left the stage before curtain call

Come time for the encore, it’s only me who’ll go

 

I write it down so I know

The facts are down in my words

What you did, the pain you brought

I’ll endure only one blow

When I miss the memories we made

And the promise we laced in our fingers

I’ll read this and remember you’re afraid

You let it win, and it won’t fade.

No, you won’t fade.
