My first glimpse of something outside
“My window to the world”
We were so much alike
We were so much alike
Cut down in the prime of your life
Watching you slip away, but not the world that you gave me
The world you gave me

That phone call brought me back in a flash
To the place I remember seeing you last
At least the way I paint it in my mind
Regrets I thought I’d left behind
We always left it as “I’ll see you around”
And every chance I had to do so
Getting hard to think about
It’s the letting go for good that before now, I never understood

You answered every “Why?” with “Why not?”
You held everyone so close and never let us drop
But as time went on, missed messages were failed attempts to reconnect

That phone call brought me back in a flash
To the place I remember seeing you last
At least the way I paint it in my mind
Regrets I thought I’d left behind
We always left it as “I’ll see you around”
And every chance I had to do so
Getting hard to think about
It’s the letting go for good that before now, I never understood

You answered every “Why?” with “Why not?”
You held everyone so close and never let us drop
Can’t help but apologize again
For things that weren’t my fault in the end
But knowing that you’re proud of where I’ve been
You're always on my mind until we meet again

That phone call brought me back in a flash
To the place I remember seeing you last
At least the way I paint it in my mind
Regrets I thought I’d left behind
We always left it as “I’ll see you around”
And every chance I had to do so
Getting hard to think about
It’s the letting go for good that before now, I never understood
We always left it as “I’ll see you around”
And every chance I had to do so
Getting hard to think about
It’s the letting go for good that before now, I never understood
