I wish that I could hold a memory
Even one that never was to be
And it kills me that we came so close

I've been staring at a photograph
From when I thought
You'd always be my better half
But I guess that we'll just never know

Standing so far from you now
Would you ever come around and

Say what you used to say to me
When I could still believe it
Be like we used to be
When I thought that you could mean it
Because no one else
Can fill up the space you left
And there's only empty promises

I think about the plans we never made
I was sure that the hurt would finally fade
But I guess I never let you go

Could we repair it somehow?
Would you ever come around and

Say what you used to say to me
When I could still believe it
Be like we used to be
When I thought that you could mean it
Because no one else
Can fill up the space you left
And there's only empty promises

And the days are far away
Like pictures starting to fade
While we're living our own lives
And I wonder if you even care
And I still wish you were here
With me tonight

Standing so far from you now
Would you ever come around and

Be like we used to be
When I thought that you could mean it
Say what you used to say to me
When I could still believe it

Be like we used to be
When I thought that you could mean it
Because no one else
Can fill up the space you left
And there's only empty promises
