Looking back on all my years
I still don’t understand those fears
So often confused, so often lost
I made my choices, but at what cost

Looking back on all my tears
A shriek across my leaden ears
I’ve served my sentence, done my time
Written slower, learned to rhyme

Looking back at your young face
Remembrin’ your soft, cold embrace
The time we spent, the dream we shared
The visions that were so impaired

Looking back on all my years
I still don’t understand those fears
And I’ve never lost quite as much
As from your thoughtless human touch
