Lyrics

How have I come to this
How did I slip and fall
How did I throw half a lifetime away
Without any thought at all

This should have been my time
It's over, it never began
Facing a world for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of shift in a star
But I know the truth and it haunts me
It's flown just a little too far

I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
Oh, it's flown just a little too far

People have faith in me
I think I once did, too
I promise whoever has a hold on our lives
I'll see the bad times through

This should have been my time
It's over, it never began
Facing a world for once not on my side
I simply turned and ran

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late

I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
I learned it a little too late

I try to blame it on fortune
Some kind of twist in my fate
I know the truth and it haunts me
I learned it a little too late

I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
Oh, oh, yeah
I learned it a little too late

Yes I did
