As I roll back the years
Turn back the clock
Wipe away my tears of regret
Were you ever really happy?
I’ve forgotten your smile
Something rare, seen once in a while
What were you thinking
With the voices inside your head
That played havoc with your moods?
Do you have the answers
To all the things that I seek?
Is it your voice, that calls me in my sleep?
Was it written in the stars?
For your life to end that way
Never saying goodbye on that solitary day
When I look up at the stars
Was it you who just winked at me
Reassuring me with your glimmering light?
Will you blow out a candle
On this day when your life began
When you received your deck of cards?
Was it you who held my hand
All those times when I felt so forlorn?
Is it you who leaves gifts for me everyday?
Perhaps I shouldn’t wonder – I already know.
When I gaze into the mirror and see you looking back at me.
