May I Have A Time Machine

The pain of youth is long and sharp
The feelings of confusion and love run deep
The betrayal and comfort that is received each day
The hope for happiness that seems lost in the fray
The caring embrace of a true friend
The knife in the back from a traitor in the end
The years of high school go on and on
You better start now and race to the dawn

What hapened to your smile?
What happened to the laughter? 
The years of happiness way back when
The elementary experiences we had back then
I would that I could live them once more
To have the warmth that I once felt before
Back when I could not hear the music
Back when the only color I knew came from light

The pain of youth is long and sharp
The feelings of confusion and love run deep
The betrayal and comfort that is received each day
The hope for happiness that seems lost in the fray
The caring embrace of a true friend
The knife in the back from a traitor in the end
The years of high school go on and on
You better start now and race to the dawn

So please may I use your silver time machine? 
To go back and visit the place of my dream? 
 I won't be long, it will be a quick trip
I will leave right now and send back the ship
The high school  years are twisting my mind
I must go back, the truth I must find
The truth of who I am and who I must become
But for now I am lost, and can see no one

What hapened to your smile?
What happened to the laughter? 
The years of happiness way back when
The elementary experiences we had back then
I would that I could live them once more
To have the warmth that I once felt before
Back when I could not hear the music
Back when the only color I knew came from light

The pain of youth is long and sharp
The feelings of confusion and love run deep
The betrayal and comfort that is received each day
The hope for happiness that seems lost in the fray
The caring embrace of a true friend
The knife in the back from a traitor in the end
The years of high school go on and on
You better start now and race to the dawn

The End
