We keep writing, talking and planning, but everything's changing
We all know what to do but no one does it
Now this time has passed, and full of regret
Two in my heart have left me awhile, I stand alone
When they get back, it won't be the same
(Never be the same)

My life, you've always been there
Now you're gone, and my head's spinning
Left the childhood, left the memories, left the good times in the past
Moving on your time has run out
Wishing the clock would stand still, the world can wait
Wasting away once again, once lived as friends

Chorus:
As time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night.

Yeeeaaahhh!

Never will I forget you, and all the memories past,
So rarely I get to see your face.
Growing I looked to you in guidance,
We knew that time would kill us, but you're still so close to me.

To me you were my life,
To me you were my soul companion.
Now you are so far away,
Nothing can take away the times, and the memories we've had.

Come back - To the days when we were young,
Come back - To the days when nothing mattered,
To the days where nothing mattered.

Chorus:
And I feel time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night.

As time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night.

    i love this song because unlike a lot of their other songs, its not really biblical. it tells a story and that gives this song a point. if it were sung, it could almost be a love song kinda like Warmness On The Soul. i love this song. this is A7X at their best. it can easily relate to life and it shows that u never know what u got till its gone then u regret it as in the chorus "As time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
    The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night."
    very deep meaning.

    I LOVE this song. This ties for first on this album with Chapter 4. I also like the fact that it's long, but it is fast and makes me want more of this song.
