When I was a younger man,
I thought the pain of defeat would last forever,
But now I don't know what it would take to make my heart back down.

'Cause I only have to wait a little while
Before I get my
Clean slate.

And somewhere in another place,
Who knows could be another life time,
Everything we gave away returns like a seed from a fugitive tree.

And you only have to wait a little while
Before you
Find the truth.

And I only had to wait a little while
Yeah, I only had to wait a little while (x2)
Before I got my
Clean slate.

    Lyric CorrectionEverything we gave away returns like a seed from a fugitive tree.
    I hear "Everything we gave away returns like a scene from a fugitive dream."
