Go back
Go back to the time from before I left
When your heart was not broken
And breathe in
Breathe through your lungs to clear your head
And wipe those tears
That fall like rain onto your chest

And I’ll touch your cheek
The way that I did when you first met me
Before we changed
And before the wind took me away

Past tense,
Thinking of all that was said that day
I can hear your heart beat from another place
But I wish
I wish that I knew why it went that way
When I lifted my eyes,
And I could’ve sworn that I saw your face

And when I heard your voice
I knew that I made the poorer choice
On this sea I’ve crossed
As the ice grew thinner before it was lost
And this winter’s passed —
The spring is on its heels again
And I thought you changed
But it was me who took our spark away

And I’ve been searching for awhile
Looking for you, hoping that you would somehow hear me
And I understand that sometimes love’s not for the best
But I wish I stayed
Before the wind took you away
