I go to bed at night
Wondering how I got here
And you are not here
I dream of the time
We were together
Our bodies discovering side by side
Our carefree way

But that was once upon a time
And happily ever after
It’s time to start a new chapter
And I can’t stand to turn the page
You taught me how to love
And now I’ve got nothing to show for it
The time we had was so short
And I can’t stand to turn the page

I woke up to the beautiful day
But somehow it didn’t seem that way
As my memory fades
I can still hear you whisper
I miss you
And I hold on
To my song
And I sing
Just like I want it to be

But that was once upon a time
And happily ever after
It’s time to start a new chapter
And I can’t stand to turn the page
You taught me how to love
And now I’ve got nothing to show for it
The time we had was so short
And I can’t start to turn the page

We’re finding our way
We’re finding our place
Going nowhere
Without a care

That was once upon a time
And happily ever after
It’s time to start a new chapter
And I can’t stand to turn the page
You taught me how to love
And now I’ve got nothing to show for it
The time we had was so short
And I can’t stand to turn the page

    General CommentI can't believe no-one posted comments! This Song is amazing. I think its about having to leave a stage of your life. Getting into the adult world. This song is reallly good ! I head it in the OC when they were in the pool.. it went really well with the show!

    General CommentAwesome song. I think you can relate it to any transition stage in life, but I see it especially as about leaving home and growing up. Maybe graduating, although that could just be because of where I am now or where I heard it. Regardless, a really moving song.
