It would be nice if we could put away and throw out everything except what really mattered.
But reality is just cruel.

In such times, I see you laughing whenever I close my eyes.
Until the day I reach eternal sleep, that smiling face will have to stay with me without fail.

People are all sad, so they and forget.

For that which I should love, for that which gives me love, I will do what I can.

Back then when we met, it was all awkward.
We went the long way, didn't we?
We got hurt, didn't we?
We went the long way, didn't we?
We got hurt.

Until the day I reach eternal sleep, that smiling face will have to stay with me without fail.

People are all sad, so they go and forget.

For that which I should love, for that which give me love, I will do what I can.

Back then, when we met, it was all awkward.
(And it should've stayed that way.)
We went the long way, didn't we?
We got hurt, didn't we?
We went the long way, didn't we?
We got hurt.

We went the long way, didn't we?
We got hurt, didn't we?
We went the long way, didn't we?
We got there in the end.

    General CommentI think this song was written about the pains of an old relationship and not being able to block them out but still trying to hold on to the good things that they remember of the person.
