He left home man, in 1999 yeah
He was searching for something, somewhere, someone, sometime
From city to city, pretty girls to bar room fights, yeah
You know death was a breath away, every moment of his life
And he wouldn't let himself think about her for too long
And she couldn't forget him, though she tried to just move on
Of course he never knew this, or maybe he misconstrued it
Yeah maybe we all go through it
But this time there's no rewind, no second try, no last goodbye
The day she died

The next time he saw her, eyes shut and pale white
Straight face for her father, but he cried alone that night, thinking
If he'd never left her, maybe she just might have stayed, head down
In his hands now, watch old memories replay
And he couldn't let himself think about it for too long
We all make decisions, shut the door or carry on
Hands shaking, sweating, he'd spend too much time regretting
Made his choice, the sun was setting
And this time there's no rewind, no second try, no last goodbye
The day he died
