'No matter how much you think you want or need it, the past has to remain just that, the past'

Could've given you everything that you need
But I cannot turn back the years
The perfect love was all you wanted from me
But I cannot turn back the years

So we have to be strong, and I'm finding that hard
We have to move on, but no matter how hard I try
If your heart's in pieces, you look for the truth
And when I look deep down inside I know, it's too bad I love you

Sometimes. hits me in the morning, hits me at night
That I cannot turn back the years
So I look out my window, turn off my light
