Look whats around you now

Eyes wide open, but I was still blind.
Always reliving one moment in my mind.
Had my big chance and blew my shot.
Now my life is stuck there, its caught.

Each day I replay it over and over in my head.
Knowing I messed up with the words I said.
I passed up the opportunity with my dream girl.
Since then my life has been one big swirl.

So for four years, that's all I have thought of.
Wanting that one chance back at true love.
What I've been doing is so stupid, its sad.
Sitting here thinking about it getting mad.

I've just been here letting life pass me by.
Four years of asking myself why didn't I?
To be upset at what you don't have,
is to waste what you do have.
