Regrets

She came to me one sunny afternoon
I Think it was September, maybe June
She asked me if I had the time, I said 'It all depends
Eternity goes on a while, in fact it never ends'
And she looked at me and said that I would never understand.
I never did, oh I never did

Now life is both upsetting and ubsurd
When words that are unspoken are unheard
This road is not as straight as some
I should have seen the signs
I didn't see the sun go down and I didn't know the time
And she looked at me and said that I would never understand.
I never did, oh I never did

Too many hearts are left broken in this world
Too many lives are lived alone
Too many dreamers are abandoning their dreams
Too afraid, or so it seems, to let another be the other in their schemes

She left me when the winter winds blew chill
I wonder if I thought of her would she be with me still
Would she be with me still?
If I had found the time to let her know that she was mine...
I never did, oh I never did
I never did, oh I never did
