And if I see you stumble 'round my way
past the corner, by the college, next to your house or something.
I'd probably turn my head and look away.
Not to smile but to let go of some tears I stored away just for you.

I'd like to know where you have been
but I'm afraid to ask
and I'd like to know if I'll see you
or am I in your past?
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know.

Do you remember when we laid out on a blanket
in the grass and stared into the open sky those summer nights?
'cause I'd give anything to be there now.
And when you think about me now,
do you think of all the times I tried to make you laugh
and no matter what, I kept on striking out,
or don't you think of me at all?

I've got these pictures that I'll always save
of a girl far too beautiful for me to ever tame.
And I think I see you, but you turn and walk away
and your scent still lingers 'round me whenever I think about the way I came and went.

Did you know that I loved you or did you just miss that fact?
Because I can't stop thinking of what we had, and I want it back.

Do you remember when you led me through the bookstore
with your arm wrapped in mine, telling me I was your favorite friend.
I just can't seem to forget that day.
And all that I want now
is for you to be by my side
like all those winter nights in Bethlehem
when you were still around,
but you don't care for me anyway.
