My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away
But every now and then you come to mind
‘Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game
But when your name was called, you found a place to hide
When you knew that I was always on your side

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent
My demons and my angels reappeared
Leavin' only traces of the man you thought I'd be
Too afraid to hear the words I'd always feared
Leavin' you with only questions all these years

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear?
Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally
“This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be”?

Well they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
And I'm left to carry on and wonder why
Even through it all, I'm always on your side

Is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear?
Or are you left to wonder, all alone, eternally
“This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be”?

Well they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away?
Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
Was it you that kept me wandering through this life?
When you know that I was always on your side
