I see my world today
It’s twisted and it’s wrong
And now I have to play
A lonely sad old song

If only I knew then
All that I know now
I wonder would I have
Changed those things somehow

Regrets a stinking thing
Choking up the hope
Like a pendulum that swings
Weighing down the rope

What do I know now
After all this time
Through memories I plough
In search of one sublime

If I had it all again
A start that I could feel
Beginning without stain
A chance that could be real

If only I could see
All that will transpire
A path that sets me free
And in my heart desire

I’d see the world today
A world that’s filled with song
A world where we could stay
A world where we belong
