Music and lyrics written by Angela Lewis....
Here’s the story about our last fight
From a past tense that I can write
Here’s the lyrics you and I don’t know
To a rhythm that’ll never go

I would search every city and cross every state
I would climb every mountain and fall from grace
I would search in the shadows to find your name,
Or to see you again

But now it’s far too late
I know, "act like it never happened"
But it’s killing me,
‘Cause I already know I’ll never know
What could’ve happened if I told you

Here’s the verse I was afraid to write
About a dream that I had last night
I don’t know where I’m going with these words
But I sure hope that they work

But no, it’s not too late
I know, ‘cause I’m still standing here
And I know I’m not alone
But if you don’t stay
Then we’ll never know
What could’ve happened if I didn’t let you go

    Song MeaningLewis' comments:
    "This is one of the older songs off of The Common Cure. I wrote it almost four years before recording the album. One day, about a week before pre-production, I found an old recording of it. For kicks, I rerecorded it as is, and sent it to my producer. This and "Yes", and "Call it As You Will" were last minute add-ons. ("Yes" wasn't written until about a week before choosing the songs to track.)

    As far as it's meaning, the song in a nutshell is just a giant 'what if?'.
    I had been talking to this guy for a while, but both of us were too stubborn to admit we had feelings for each other or apologize. I don't even remember what the fight was about. Something trivial, no doubt. I was having a difficult time putting how I felt into words, so I wrote a song. This is one of few that are directly caused by AND about a specific event."
