When you see the light
You could imagine
Where you can go
And when you walk outside
You could've had it
You felt alone
You felt alone
So why'd you say those words to him
If you could start over again
When you asked for this
It was a gift, yeah
They let you have
And once you've seen the light
You will remember (you WILL remember!)
Where you could go (you WILL remember!)
When you would go
Away
So why'd you say those words to him
If you could start over again
Yeah, you turn it around
And see how they came to be there
Oh, but you've never seen
The lives in between
No they won't care
No they won't care
And when you tell those words to him
Be sure to start over again
And when you tell those words to him
Just be sure to start over again
Yeah, just be sure to start over again.
