Lyrics
The story begins
Once upon a time
I was asleep
I couldn't read the signs
I just didn't see
What I had back then
I'd hold you tight
If I had you again

You should have hit me with a hammer
Something suitably blunt
So I might have realised

I didn't know
Any better
You couldn't wait
For me forever
I had you
I held you
I found you
I lost you
I love you
What else can I say
Why did I let you walk away

The fool on the hill
I stood looking down
And I played the king
But I was the clown
You said 'come closer
Lean in if you must
Listen closely
For I'll say this only once

'don't they say time waits for no man
And neither will I
So I guess this is goodbye'

I didn't know
Any better
You couldn't wait
For me forever
I had you
I held you
I found you
I lost you
I love you
What else can I say
Why did I let you walk away
You can lead a horse to water
But I'm such a dumb ass
I would have you back in a blink
You wouldn't need to ask
Angels rushed while I thought I would think

I didn't know
Any better
You couldn't wait
For me forever
I had you
I held you
I found you
I lost you
I love you
What else can I say
Why did I let you walk away

Walk away
