The Parade (Hearts Made From Clay)

It's about looking back at memories with someone you loved and wondering if they still think of you years later

If only you knew how I loved you

If I could let go of the past I would

Though many years went by, it refused to die

I wonder if you still feel like I do

 

I fell aside, looking back to yesterday

I ponder and dream, of seeing your beautiful face

My heart, once nothing but made of clay

Kicked into life by your laugh, your smile eased me

 

Do you ever recall those easy days

Naive and innocent, life was just an easy parade

I stared into your eyes, but I missed my turn

I wonder what the reasons were, will I ever learn

 

These days I'm broke and unhappy with my fate

But I know the chance has come far too late

You've been happier with better people than me

You've been in the company, of greater people than me

 

I looked back to when we ran

Through this sleeping town, easy and laughing

As we held each others hands

There was nothing we couldn't do

 

Do you ever recall those easy days

Naive and innocent, life was just an easy parade

I stared into your eyes, but I missed my turn

I wonder what the reasons were, will I ever learn

 

Well, here comes the future and it's miserable

A light in my heart, ebbing and turning dull

How I look back to those easy days

It's hard to feel, when my heart's made of clay

 

Do you ever recall those easy days

Naive and innocent, life was just an easy parade

I stared into your eyes, but I missed my turn

I wonder what the reasons were, will I ever learn

The End
