Can't things be back the way they were?
Can't we try to turn the pages?

We lost our love when said you needed to grow
I said, "How come?" you said, "I don't know"
Cause every afternoon I'd call to see
How you were, or maybe to hear that you need me
Ask you what you bought or what someone else had said
It'll be okay, baby, it's only in your head
You loved me more than anyone would see
I told you that you'd leave me but you never agreed
And I never think nor look nor believe much in hanging on
Cause my dreams are still breaking down with the dawn

Every early morning when you'd wake me up
You made late night exceptions when I woke you up drunk
Never did I think nor look nor to see between the lines
My love for you darling was unsurprisingly blind
And somehow the black and white eye blindfold untied
Wrapped me up, gone put me out, and took a hold of my spine
Now I'm there again beside you and I don't know what to do
I don't know how to feel anymore after the pain you put me through

Every night the lights will shine down on this
But the sunlight in the morning next to you is where I'll miss
And I'll ask you why you screamed last night in a dream and you'll insist
It was only a nightmare, and our love now still exists

Can't things be back to the way they were?
Can't we try to turn the pages?
Can't love go back to from where it came?
Can't any one thing be the same?
Can't any one thing be the same?
