Looking back
I think of the time I spent with you
Everyday was amazing
As we dreamed up something new
Sometimes the times were tough
We had frustration and strife
But now I’ve come to realize
It was the best time of my life

What I would give if I could live
That year again
If I could unlearn all the things I’ve learned
About life and one best friend
If only I could go on from here
Knowing what I knew then
My life would be better
If I could forget

People say they’d like to go back
Knowing what they know now
I’d like to go forward
With what I had somehow
Ignorance is happiness
That’s all that I want
Time goes on and memories
Are all that I’ve got

What I would give if I could live
That year again
If I could unlearn all the things I’ve learned
About life and one best friend
If only I could go on from here
Knowing what I knew then
My life would be better
If I could forget

So I’ll quietly leave through the door
And maybe pretend
Things are the way they were before
I’ll relive it again and learn the hard way
I don’t care what it takes or what people have to say
“It’s never easy”
Well what was?
“It doesn’t matter”
What does?
As long as I’ve got you and what I had then
Then I will be forever content

What I would give if I could live
That year again
If I could unlearn all the things I’ve learned
About life and one best friend
If only I could go on from here
Knowing what I knew then
My life would be better
If I could forget

Looking back
I think of the time I spent with you…
