I wish there was a turn
Back to when we had peace
In a life filled with joy.
I wish there was a road
To follow back to the place
Where we would share our time.
I wish I had taken the other path
Because I miss you with every breath.
But I didn’t stay on our shared path…
I strayed too far from where it went
Right and wrong and right again
And left the choices I had behind.
And I wish I could leave behind
All the painful moments between us
– But all I can do is hurt and cry –
I will stay on the road
Where you left me alone.
I will reach the end
Even without you.
It’s not like I could decide
To just go backwards in time…
