I can hardly remember when, no, I can't recall a time when our perfect lives had yet to fall apart. What was once just a fear is now a reality, one that you'll regret to the grave. Counting the chances that we have thrown away.
Now I'm wondering where it all went wrong. We led a life of promise and drive, it makes you wonder why we settled for this life where disappointment thrives, and jealousy resides. If you had a second chance, could change the way it is, then tell me: what would you do now?
We've been living a lie. We say we're satisfied, but we both know our dreams have long since faded out. And so we spend our time fantasizing about the way things might have been, we grasp at strings and hope that we can start again. It's not too late to try, but something always gets in the way.
We will keep coasting through.
No resistance on this path, it's a measure of our conviction. So still we lay here, while some would kill to lead the life that we're all just dying to live.
Life wasn't meant to go this way.
