Oh yes I remember days
Talking about how we would one day get out.
Yes I remember high hopes and lofty dreams.
When did we learn the taste of dirt?
When did we figure out how to hurt?
Oh when did we fall so far down?
Forever in a cage of your own making;
Why am I the only one whose heart is breaking?
Please remember with me
All the things you wanted to be,
The places we said we’d go.
Yes I know,
The world has broken all of us down;
But even crippled I’ll cross this broken ground
I just wish it wasn’t alone.
So young with high hopes and lofty dreams,
How long ago it seems.
Now the hole you said you’d never dig
Has gotten too big,
All I can hope is that it doesn’t become your grave.
I wish I could save
I wish there was a spark to turn to flame
But I can’t push what isn’t there.
Can you even remember,
Our high hopes and lofty dreams?
How we always said tomorrow
But tomorrow has come and gone.
Now all that remains
Are shadows and old songs.
I took my tomorrow
And I made it my today
And even crippled with dust in my mouth
I can smile because I found a way out.
