You know better

Arpan Dey 2004 (West Bengal)

Can I come back now?
I’ve gone too far…
Can I really come back?
You know better.
You know better.
You know better.

What do you think?
Am I really gone forever?
I can come back, can’t I?
You know better.

I was lured down the path
And that does matter:
For I was not myself.
You know better.

Can I come back now?
I’ve gone too far…
Can I really come back?
You know better.
You know better.
You know better.
