Now I see the truth...
Now I see the truth

I've given up everything that's right, I pray
That it's all the same
And now I can't even sleep at night, it may
End up canceling, everything
All that I've gained
Like a child I lost sight of all those things
And I dove right in
And now I'm faced with the regret
God, I'm still the same
Still the same
Who can I blame?

And banking on the one thing
That I chose to give up
Step aside for, in a sense, a joy ride
'Cuz it was hard to see through all the smoke
And what I felt was going nowhere
Was really all I had

Now I see the truth...
Now I see the truth

And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
Wait for you

Wait for you

Wait for you
Now the one that I can do
Is wait for you
No, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't

And see I dwell on the past
I chose to slay
And regret remains
Now I forge on
And it's all in vain
All in vain
What can I say?

And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you

And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you
And these memories keep dragging me down
And I can't wait for you

    General CommentObviously about regrets. The writer took his relationship for granted and committed acts which ended it. Although he wants his lover back, he knows that his the aforementioned acts will likely never be forgiven.

    This song is gorgeous, possibly the best piece musically the band has ever written (with the exception of "...Built Us A House".)
