Standing on the side of the highway
I can't help but to look back, shaking hands aren't for holding so you gotta run fast.

How am I to choose who to love if I can't even love who I am

Big mistakes and some heavenly faith, almost lost myself to darkness for goodness sake!

I left behind a good one, the one who loved me back. Now I'm stranded in between my family and the past..

Who would I of been to you if I wasn't so confused?

Maybe you'd be here right now, and we'd be tying these little shoes.

I doubt you'll ever hear this, so I guess I'll write it so it lasts.

Sometimes love is crazy, wild and fast. I should of took the risk for you.

I left behind a good one, the one who loved me fearlessly.

Someday I hope to see you, and I hope you see me too just know I'm sorry and this love I'll always have for you.
