In the dawn of my reflections,
down the road that I used to roam
When I had not a friend to call my name,
and my time was spent alone
You lit up my path like a burst of light,
and I’d tell ya if you were around
I hate to say that after all this time,
I only miss you now

What adventures we’ve had, oh they’ve come and gone,
what I’d give if you gave them again
I’ll play them through my head, while you instead,
forget them in England or Spain
I can hear your voice like a harmony,
but it always seems to drown out mine
I hate to say I’ve only missed you now,
after all this time

Why, go? Look what you’ve left behind,
this screaming voice of mine,
Saying, why, go? I know you’ll find love ahead,
but that’s not what I meant

Now I know I just can’t stay, I think I’ll head out West tonight
Still there’s nothing left to say, to you,
but we both know that’s alright,
Though I lost my muse, now I’ve got a friend,
And she’s wonderful the same,
Even if we start, to drift apart, and forget each other’s name,
Oh how bittersweet, is losing dreams,
but what I’d give if you gave it again
After all this time, I’ve realized,
love means the most in the end.
