Off of the Exposure album
It could make me wanna sit down and cry, ev’rything we’ll ever be has to die, ev’rything we ever were is dead, I cannot believe what I’ve had. It could make me wanna turn around, I don’t wanna be lost and not found, ev’rything that I lose, it just turns me upside down. Whatever I did on the way to becoming myself, here, today, all the skins that I shed like a snake have gone astray. I could not be me, I could not feel me, ’cause I realize
I can’t be just what I used to be.
If I could only bring it back forever, if I could only bring it back forever… if I could only bring me back forever…
You don’t know just what it means to me, I could never go back to be the way I used to be – believe me –
deep inside I think it’s killing me I could live I could die, I could pray I could try to be me, but i can’t be me !
I remember me as a child, now my phantasies running wild, like a smell or a taste from the past, this reminds me of me. ev’rything that I used to do, I was so small, ev’rything was new, I never knew, what I’d grow up into. I remember the fear and the pain, I remember the joy just the same, I remember myself like a friend from days gone by.
I could not be me, I could not feel me,’cause I realize I can’t be just what I used to be.
If I could only bring it back forever…
if I could only bring it back forever…
if I could only bring me back forever… forever !
I tried and tried to ease the pain, but now I’m gone and I cannot come home again.
Where’s the little boy, that I used to be, of ev’rything that I’ve lost I never wanted to lose me, use me up like a battery-pack, I never wanted to leave, but now I can’t come back, I never felt it before, but I feel it here today, I wanna make it stay… but the memories fade away!
