Things We Leave Behind Lyrics

Maybe if it ended sooner

I wouldn't feel this way

Maybe if I'd said things differently

You wouldn't look away

Maybe if I sang songs sweeter

You'd still hear me

And I wouldn't have to miss you now

 

Maybe if I just stepped back

You'd have come close

Maybe if I slept at night

I wouldn't hold a dream that froze

Maybe if I timed it better

It be you and me

And I wouldn't have to miss you now

 

The moments that we shared,

For me get intertwined

The things we get to keep,

And the things we leave behind

Don't take everything,

Leave me with a sign

That for a moment we did rhyme

 

Maybe if I’d broke the rules,

You’d know what to say

Maybe if I'd just asked you

You'd say you'd stay

Maybe if I'd grown up faster

You’d be here for me

And I wouldn't have to miss you now

 

The moments that we shared,

For me get intertwined

The things we get to keep

And the things we leave behind

Don't take everything

Leave me with a sign

That for a moment we did rhyme

 

The moments that we shared,

For me get intertwined

The things we get to keep,

And the things we leave behind

Don't take everything,

Leave me with a sign

That for a moment we did rhyme

That for a moment we did rhyme
