Now I see the time we had before
Is just a passing moment that we can't share anymore.
And I've learned that written words are not the same
As when you take the time to say it
And let the clouds release the rain.
And I wish my dreams alone would bring back my old friends.
Yesterday's just something I can't mend.
And I broke down for my lost brother and I've died for mama, too.
Now my tears fall down for you. For you.
And I say one thing each day before I lay me down.
I thank God for your sweet smile although you're not around.
And I can't overcome your memory in my mind.
It's a bridge I'll never cross until the end of time.
And I wish my dreams alone would bring back my old friend.
But, yesterday's just something I can't mend.
'cause I've broke down for my lost father and I've cried for sister, too.
Now my tears fall down for you. For you. You.
