Mother can we start over?
I wanna be the boy I was back then
Before the world came, made me colder
I wanna feel the way I did back then
With love in my heart.

We live in a beautiful place
Let love take away all this pain
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh
We wasted so many days
Our hearts are as dark as the rain
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh

Father, can we start over?
Take me to the places that we lived
Before the days came, made us older
I wanna feel the way I did back then
Before my heart grew cold.

We live in a beautiful place
Let love take away all this pain
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh
We wasted so many days
Our hearts are as dark as the rain
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh, ah oh

Our hearts are as dark as the rain, ah oh
Our hearts are as dark as the rain, ah oh
It's a beautiful place if we make it
It's a beautiful place to be wasted, don't you know?

We live in a beautiful place,
Let love take away all this pain,
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh
We live in a beautiful place,
Let love take away all this pain,
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh, ah oh
We wasted so many days
Our hearts are as dark as the rain
We live in a beautiful place, ah oh, ah oh

    i really have to agree with Raicho,
    i understand what she means by relating to the song.and i myself cry everytime this song comes on.and also a few other GC songs.i think it's amazing that GC can put so much meaning into a 3-4 minute song. and that people can give there own meaning to how they see it.and interprate it.then they can relate to the songs.
    GC you guys rocked london last month (Y)keep it coming !!

    I totally agree with linny-pinny! however, just to add to this, I cry everytime this song comes on. And believe me, that's pretty amazing since including this song, there's only two more that make me cry.

    Anyways, I relate to this song in so mny ways. And I know that people say that all of the time but it's true. Being a teenager in this world is shit. I usually say to people that I hate every moment of this stage in my life. Kids are cruel, sick, and demented on so many different levels! But, if I look back, I can better, happier times that I over looked just because I was hurt and angry.

    I took it out on my mom and my dad. My little brother suffered, too. So, when I see this song, it makes realize that it's time to get myself together. You only have so long to live and when you waste time hating the world, you just kill yourself faster.

    GC's always got good messages in their songs. So rock on guys and keep kickin' ass! -Rae

    WOW..I did this song for a school project and I had to infer what the meaning of the song was and give proof...I thought the meaning of the song was that the world would be a beautiful place if people took the time to make it.
