One More Time

What if we suddenly awoke,

Realized it'd all been a dream?

What kind of feelings would be evoked;

For us what would it mean?

 

And if I could give back all this time,

Run back across the line,

Wings guided by the wind;

Would you let me back in?

 

What if none of this was real;

If I was still by your side?

Could you imagine how I'd feel,

To realize you still wanted to be mine?

 

And if I could trade in all this time,

I'd blow away the lines,

Your wings guided by the wind;

Eager to let you back in.

 

But what if this is true,

Your love forever gone?

Could I live without you?

Would dusk ever return to dawn?

 

Somewhere, inside!

I fear, sunshine!

So scared, I hide!

Broken wing, still try!

But I cannot fly,

When I cannot see my butterfly!

So I, get high!

Silence, the cries!

Justify, my lies!

So I, hide!

Inside, terrified...

 

And if I could give back all this time,

Run back across the line,

Wings guided by the wind;

Would you let me back in?

Can I trade in all my time?

Join you side by side?

Hold you one last time?

One more time, I'd call you mine...

 

I'd give everything!

I'd trade anything!

Just to hold you one more time,

I'd give away my life,

If that meant I got to kiss you goodbye,

One more time...

Nice story, too bad it's a lie.

If he hides ... it is not true that he would change anything.  That is another lie.
