After school, walking home
Fresh dirt under my fingernails
And I can smell hot asphalt
Cars screech to a halt to let me pass

And I cannot remember
What life was like through photographs
And trying to recreate images
Life gives us from past
And sometimes it's a sad song

But I cannot forget, refuse to regret
So glad I met you
And take my breath away, make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through

And Mama, I've been crying
'Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said the battles almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun

Now moving on down my street
I see people I won't ever meet
I think of her, take a breath
Feel the beat in the rhythm of my steps
And sometimes it's a sad song

But I cannot forget, refuse to regret
So glad I met you
And take my breath away, make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through

And Mama, I've been crying
'Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said the battles almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun

The rhythm of her conversation
The perfect sin of her creation
The sex she slipped into my coffee
The way she felt when she first saw me

Hate to love and love to hate her
Like a broken record player
Back and forth and here and gone
And on and on and on and on

But I cannot forget, refuse to regret
So glad I met you
And take my breath away, make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have gone through

And Mama, I've been crying
'Cause things ain't how they used to be
She said the battles almost won
And we're only several miles
Said the battles almost won
And we're only several miles from the sun
