lyrics

Sometimes I'd like to wonder how I got here
The answer, I'm afraid, is hard to miss
And though I sometimes tire of the burden on my shoulders
I've seen too many others carry far more weight than this

And I suppose I walked away
It's not as though I ever heard you ask for me to stay
And miss you as I may
I won't pretend that it was a mistake I made that day

Do you remember when the world was all before us?
Every door was open down the hall
Each door I choose now shuts another one behind it
But that's a better life, I think, than choosing none at all

And though at times I may have strayed
All in all I won't disown the choices I have made
I've no desire to masquerade
The cards were dealt and I will claim the hand that I have played

We each have our own passions driving us
We each have our own paths to find
We are all just stumbling in the dark
Through broken trails
By cold starlight

Years have passed and many I will treasure
Despite mementos etched as bruise or scar
And though the path is strewn with the remnants of my failures
I wont' abandon now the course that's carried me this far

And if we meet again someday
There is so much that I would like to show you if I may
Since going on my way
I've seen such beauty in this world it's too much to convey
With any words I say
