slid back and watched the year turn sat still walked through what i learned jerked tears then grined to cheeks and yearned for what had been lost and what had been found tables turn when knocked down let's stand them upright and follow our sights to where we belong slid back and watched the year turn sat still walked through what i learned jerked tears then grined to cheeks and yearned i yearned can't think of turning back clocks can't run for what has been lost and we can't sulk in what once drowned us because we will drown again and cease to win the constant battles that we wake up with now stronger and warned we should live without scorn and renew what we can no year could cut us like that one is we don't sit and drown in wonder time passed we failed we crashed but who is to say we can't start over start now start right stay tight and we can live side by side

    General CommentFrom the Live at the Hardback booklet:

    I see this song as a story of crucial turning point in two peoples lives. Two people who found a peace through love they thought they would never know, and learned how to keep it.
    One cold New Years Eve in Richmond, I realized exactly where I was, where I have been, and where I belonged. She wasn't around but I knew she felt the same. Though we had split and frayed the blessed romance tike and time again, it seemed like it had never really ended.
    So, from the rooftops then, to the rooftops now we've seen why we're still here and who we're both about. It's been three and a half years since I fell, watching her play solo through the window in alley of the Hardback. The same place I found myself, later, writing down the words to this song. Now like the color of the light on her dress then, I'm still on fire.

    General CommentThis song, like many HWM songs is about strength in the face of adversity, and pain. Always keeping an optimistic eye on the future and accepting the troubles of the past as things that can not be changed, only learned from.
