Lyrics

Before all the sadness
Before all the pain
We could have been [something]
We might have held hands in the rain

Before all this happened
Before it was done
We still had forever
We still could have played in the sun

Chorus:
Take me back...
Take me back...
...is all I can say
since the cold wind has blown you away.

Before all the darkness
came for your soul
Before everything just
spiraled all out of control

Before you were broken
Before things went wrong
You could have been happy
There seemed like a way to get home.

(Chorus)

bridge
If I lived a thousand years ago, at least you'd be getting closer
Now every passing second just takes you further away
If I could say one word to you, out of the millions I've been saving
Maybe I'm being selfish, but all I can think of is "stay"

Before I was empty
Before you were gone
Before things exploded
Before things went wrong

Before life had meaning
Before you gave me a clue
Before when I met you
I had nothing to lose

Before childhood ended
and you had to grow up
Did you take a good look and think
It wasn't your cup?

Before you had worries
and you knew life too well
to have faith in the future
or faith in yourself

Was there ever a time
Before you were sad
When the world was a happy place
Or at least not too bad

Before all the anger
Your heart was twisted and torn
Before life betrayed you
Before you were born
