I was what you wanted
I saw your eyes reaching toward it
The one you never thought you'd get
Now I'm a picture in your wallet

Everything was simpler then
Nothing gained no one losing
We held the future in our hands
Now we've got nothing but the present

Tell me I'm a little bit
Like I was when I met you
It didn't end the way that we wanted it
Now we're just breath in a statue

I am here to love you
But I don't know if I can
What if all I ever will become
Is nothing but a man

I am here to love you
But I don't know what that means
I just want to feel how I feel
Not wonder if it's real
I want you to be real

I knew what I wanted then
I was living for the summer
Soon we would be growing up
And we could finally have each other

Now that I am looking back
All I needed was to wonder
But we let ourselves forget to forget
And so we ended in an answer

I am here to love you
But I don't know who I am
If only I could just forget to ask

Take me to my younger years

Running round the woods
With all my useless dreams

No one could tell me what was real
When you're young you can forget
anything at all
And you wear it like a mirror
