How have I come to this
How did I slip and fall
How did I throw half a lifetime away
Without any thought at all

This should've been my time
It's over, it never began
Facing a world, for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran


I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
But I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late


I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
I learned it a little too late


People have faith in me
I think I once did too
I promise whoever has a hold on our lives
I'll see the bad times through


This should have been my time
It's over, it never began
Facing a world, for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran


I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of shift in the stars
But I know the truth and it haunts me
It's flown just a little too far


I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
It's flown just a little too far


I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
But I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late
