There was a place we used to go
When we were young, the gravel road
We wasted all our summers holding hands, oh
I went to college out of state
A path so sure I had to take it
We promised that we'd be the same
When I got back, you were gone

Now I'm driving around my old hometown
Wondering how I let you slip away
And just when you think you've got it figured out
Everything changes, yeah

Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
What would happen if you ever did it differently
'Cause just trying to live a life, can be unpredictable
Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
Do you wonder if you ever should have stayed with me?
'Cause just trying to live a life, can be unpredictable
And it's unpredictable

I got back home, the weather changed
They called for sun but we got rain
The gravel road must've been rearranged
'Cause I was waiting there, just like we planned

I did the party thing at school
Got over it, pretty soon
I graduated, thought I made it
But oh no, oh no
So I'm back at the place where I started from
Feels like I haven't moved at all
When all of the things that you count on begin to fall

Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
What would happen if you ever did it differently
'Cause just trying to live ypur life, can be unpredictable
Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
Do you wonder if you ever should have stayed with me?
'Cause just trying to live your life, can be unpredictable

I don't belong here
Where did I go wrong, here?
And I'm feeling older

I can feel the changes all around me, here the come again

Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
What would happen if you ever did it differently
'Cause just trying to live my life, can be unpredictable
Do you ever think you made the wrong decision?
Do you wonder if you ever should have stayed with me?
'Cause just trying to live a life, can be unpredictable
And it's unpredictable

    General CommentThis songs meaning is pretty obvious. It's about having a romance when you were younger, and promising that you'd continue where you left off after you finish college. However when you come back, you realize that everythings changed, and it's not the same as it was before. When you left you thought that everything would start right where you left off, but it hasn't, and you're right back where you began. Now the person that you thought would wait for you as moved on, and you're wondering what would have happened if you stayed together, and how sometimes things don't always go the way as planned.
