I can see you in the distance

like a memory lost in time

its been 6 long years and counting

but you're always on my mind

I see you in my world of dreams

and each day that I awake

I can feel you slipping farther

it's much more than i can take


I try to conjour up your face

but my vision is unclear

i've been wasted daily, killing time

wishing you were here


and if i saw you, just one more time

and if i could feel your presence for one more day

i'd carve the way you look and feel

into my memory

and never once forget the way

that you took care of me


And now that I look back again

I can see the pain you felt back then

I can hear your heart break into shards

I can see why it was so damn hard

And I know that I was just a child

livin' free and runnin' wild

And i know that you don't blame me

For not always being by your side
