If I could turn back the clock
It would be third-period government
Second week of senior year
And you’d have just said hi
With the meeting of our eyes
And not a hint of all the anger or the lies

But I’d have never learned to question
All the passing glances and stares
I’d have never seen what honesty I need
I’d have never understood that hearts
Can only fail without the mind

But if I go back in time
That love that we both shared
Would still be going nowhere
Going nowhere

And you’d have just said hi
With the meeting of our eyes
And not a hint of all the anger or the lies

But I’d have never learned to question
All the passing glances and stares
I’d have never seen what honesty I need
I’d have never understood that hearts
Can only fail without the mind

And so what if you really loved me
Love could never save us from our minds
From your mind
