I used to walk in the rain
I used to play in the sun
I used to hide my pain
Everything and everyone
I used to cry on my pillow
I used to scream at the sky
I was a weeping willow
And I used to wonder why
*And I feel I could live a thousand lifetimes
Yet I'm, I'm afraid of letting go
You know my days, I wish they could last forever
But my tomorrows would never come*
I used to work in my garden
It's where I hung up my clothes
I worked 'til my hands were hard and
Smelled flowers 'til they stung my nose
I used to play in the sand
Build my castles by the sea
They'd never be there in the morning
But it never seemed to bother me
**
Now I just sit in my chair
Watch the world race by
Wear those flowers in my hair
And I never seem to wonder why anymore
And I have lived a thousand lifetimes
And now it's, it's time for me to let go
You know your days can't last forever
'Cause your tomorrows will never come
