The things that I could have done
The songs that I should have sung
But it wasn’t that easy
The times that I could stayed
The love that we would have made
But it wasn’t that easy
These, these are the thoughts
That come back to haunt me late at night
Why can’t I forgive myself

For the road not taken
A path forsaken
And though my heart is breakin’
Ain’t it time to move on

The life that we could have shared
The beauty and the despair
Or so I believed
And yet my greatest mistake
The road that I chose to take
Was to leave
No, there’s no holding on
To something that’s gone and wasn’t to be
Then why can’t I forgive myself

For the road not taken
A path forsaken
And though my heart is breakin’
Ain’t it time to move on (ooooh)
Move on
Ooooh (yeah yeah yeah)

And now the tears have been shed
There are new roads ahead
I can set myself free
Time, time to forgive myself

For the road not taken
A path forsaken
'Cause when your hopes are shaken
You've gotta reawaken
And though my heart is breakin’
Ain’t it time to move on
