I know that I should go
But in spite of what I know
I am still compelled to stay here for awhile.
And if I fall apart
Around the remnants of my heart
I'll never say that it wasn't all worthwhile.
So I can take my life as is
Or I can be jealous of his
The one with you in it, that is
And the place that I long for.
And I confess it so sincere
I never meant to fill you with my fear.
As I tried to guide myself away from this.
And though I appear so self-involved
I took note of everything as it dissolved
And I will sing it back to you and reminisce
So was this all by my design?
Will they put me in the firing line?
And if offered would I decline
The things that I long for?
Don't look at me that way
I'm not some tired old cliché
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need
But while I hoped and dreamed
Leaving you alone and unredeemed
You picked up and carried on with stunning speed
So I'll look on and smile
And with every passing mile
I'll be with you all the while
Towards something you long for.

And then one day you find 10 years have got behind you. And I guess I'll just begin again. You say we can still be friends. But now that I'm older my heart's colder. Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing. There is no reconciliation that will put me in my place. Tides that I tried to swim against have brought me down upon my knees. The feelings I could not release became a bitter part of me. Looking back through time you know it's clear that I've been blind. Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved. Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts. Maybe I don't really wanna know how your garden grows. The finest day that I ever had was when I learned to cry on command. I never said I was a victim of circumstance. Weep little lion man, you're not as brave as you were at the start.
