lyrics

It's true, my life has been full of regrets, baby

For me, it's been the only way it could be

Maybe
Remember the night I broke your favorite chair?

Perfectly
We threw the pieces into the fire
It was January
And watched the fire burn through the night
Then woke to ash in winter light

And I'd drag you off to bed, sleepyhead
As the sounds of the school yard drifted through Our dreams

It's strange going back there
Every one's gone

It's natural
People move out
People pass on
Like my mom

We slept in her hospital room every night
Together

And when she couldn't talk any more

We sang to her

And when you're all alone, pretty baby
I'll meet you in the deep
Til you're fast asleep

And when the cities burning, little baby
I'll climb to your window,
And carry you away

It's true my life has been full of regrets, baby

Sometimes I wonder if you'd take it all back

Never
You're still the only one I can talk to

Whatcha gonna do
You've gotta journey around the bend
To make it start again
Make it start again
Make it start again
Make it start again
Make it start again
