In another life
We were all dressed up like our mothers and fathers
In another life

In another time
We all could’ve been just a little more prepared
In another time; maybe some other time

In another place
There’s a person waiting who we’ll never get to know
In another place
There’s someone waiting who we could’ve learned to love

In another way
I know these last five years have been something of a waste
But in a better way
I feel the entry unwound and awaking on the wind

The words we did not think to say
And the one that somehow got away
Were never really right
Games we thought we should’ve played
And the ones that left when they could’ve stayed
Were never really right

Every step and every other mile
Every other world
Every second
Every other day
Every other life
