"Looking Forward To Looking Back" as written by Mandy Moore, Deborah R. Talan and Steve Tannen....
Drove to your house in the hills
Where I wanted to be
The lights were all on
And I knew you were waiting for me
And that road became familiar
Like the mystery shape of your heart

[Chorus:]
And I know you loved me in your way
I'm looking forward to looking back on these days
And I'm fine, but I'm not OK
I'm looking forward to looking back on these days

The fog in the morning clouded the world that we knew
It was almost enough being lonely and living for you
And the rain came to our window
And I wish I could've stayed

[Chorus]

Let it go
Let it go sunshine
Now you know
Now you know it's time
It's time

You were asleep while I gathered my things in the dark
The burns on my fingers were all that was left of the spark
Didn't want to wake you
'Cause I knew I couldn't say

[Chorus]

I'm looking forward to looking back on these days

    General CommentSuch a great song about breaking up, and looking at things from a future perspective when they are lesss raw.
    The line "You were asleep while I gathered my things in the dark
    The burns on my fingers were all that was left of the spark"
    really gets to me. I think its such a strong thing to say about breaking up.

    General Commentyeah, i love this song also...i think its about a relationship that ended on a good note. it didn't end in a fight or anything, its time was just up. unlike many relationships that end in regret, she is able to look back on it and smile
