about

Written for a girlfriend who I had reconnected with years after I hurt her badly. I wondered aloud why she would open herself to me after what happened.

lyrics

Sit back and laugh at yourself
Put your heart on the shelf once again
You remember me then
So how can you open yourself
To the man who gave you such pain
Left you out in the rain again and again

Hey, you remember me now
I'm the one with the mind that wandered
Spoiled and squandered away

Well I know that you had the right
You should fight the good fight and forget
Chase me outta your mind
Only peace you could find

But now it's me wishing that you could see
Through the fog of the years that passed us
But never could last us till now
Still here we are. Never mattered how far
Cause for all of the miles we traveled
Our lives came unraveled somehow

Stop for a while and listen to me
You know that I'd hurt you somehow
Don't know what's meant to be
Be careful how tender your heart
Don't you leave it so open. Be smart
Just hide it from men like me
Who think they can see in the dark

So now you can put it all back
Get your life back on track and just be
You've seen all you should see
Don't you worry 'bout me

Hey, you remember me now
I'm the one with the mind that wandered
Spoiled and squandered away
Still here we are. Never mattered how far
Cause for all of the miles we traveled
Our lives came unraveled somehow
