You're a senior double major
You got such big ideas
We were searching for a savior
To guide us through those restless years

If only I could steal you away
From those paths we were led astray
I would take back all those things I said
That new year's day
If only I could make you see
That all those dreams belonged to me
I'd take back all those things I said
That new year's day

The October autumn twilight
The chilling of our breath
I had dreams I've found redemption
And a past full of regret
And the clouds on the horizon
Look like a thousand paper cranes
And I heard your voice
But couldn't scream your name

If only I could steal you away
From those paths were led astray
I would take back all those things I said
That new year's day
If only I could make you see
That all those dreams belonged to me
I'd take back all those things I said
That new year's day

So let's drink to forgiveness
Let's drink for regret
Let's drink to the ones we've loved and lost
Let us never forget
The mannequin shields her glowing eyes
We'll all too human, yeah
We're always searching on
Until that gift of isolation has been won

If only I could steal you away
From those paths were led astray
I would take back all those things I said
That new year's day
If only I could make you see
That all those dreams belonged to me
I'm haunting them the way you know you're haunting me
If only I could steal you away
From those paths were led astray
I would take back all those things I said
That new year's day
That new year's day
