She looks at her prospects
Error isn't seen
Overlook the one
Who could turn this all around
Wants to believe
But her faith keeps sinking
She once saw it clearly
Now she doesn't find life worth living
She'll treat him this way
Until he's gone and moved on
One day she'll say
All she has lost
She doesn't know
All the pain she's caused
Misunderstandings
Only go so far

Another day....passes by
Another whim....starts to die

In retrospect she sees
Happiness was so close
Capricious and narrow
Decision was invoked
She had too many chances
Guess she forgot to care
Was always there
All the help was given
She took it for granted
Figured it was driven
One day she'll see
Everything she has lost
She doesn't know
All the pain she's caused
Misunderstandings
Only go so far

Another day....passes by
Another whim....starts to die
Another day....passes by
Another whim....starts to die

Recalls how it was then
Longs for the past
Was always there then
She wishes it again
Regrets will stay with you
If you pretend not to care

Another day....passes by
Another whim....starts to die
Another day....passes by
Another whim....starts to die
A deadly whim
A deadly whim

    General CommentI randomly clicked on this song and i'm completely amazed I seriously started crying after reading them. These lyrics are amazing, I have never even heard of this band or this song and wow they just blew me away with this one. Here's my take on the song: This girl has this guy and he's like perfect for her and well she does something or goes somewhere or something and she leaves the guy behind and then she starts to regret it and how she feels she has lost her one chance at happiness or something. Just a thought i may be completely wrong.
