The thought of getting older
And regretting things that I have done
Only one thing made me notice
How I failed to keep my precious one

And though I know that
You are with me always
It still makes me cry

How time just passes
I can't believe
How much I miss you
Life keeps blowing past us
I can't believe
That you're not with me (with me)

I lost you in the darkness
A place that I have since become
You know I'd take you with me
But I couldn't stand to hurt your mum

Just know that everyday
I see your face
And wish that you were mine

How time just passes
I can't believe
How much I miss you
Life keeps blowing past us
I can't believe
That you're not with me (with me)

If I had my way
You'd be here with me
But that will never be

It's breaking my heart
That you'll never see
How much you mean to me

How time just passes
I can't believe
How much I miss you
Life keeps blowing past us
I can't believe
That you're not with me (with me)

    General CommentI think it's from the point of view of a man who has gone through a terrible divorce or breakup, and now he is feeling the pain of not being able to be with his son. The mistakes he has made have compromised his ability to have a relationship with the boy as he grows, and he can't believe he could have been so stupid. He only wants his child to be with him, but he knows that the mother is suffering from the separation too, and that she needs her baby with her.
