lyrics

I was like you
I was afraid to stoke the fire
There was something to fear
About the flames getting higher
But now we both know
That it was nothing but a light
Just hoping to guide us into the dark
And right through the night

And the night did come, but we let the fire die
And when we carried on we were already blind

If we knew then what we know now
It would be different but I don’t know how
If we knew then what we know now
It would be different, I just don't know how

You were like me
You never liked the rain
Always searching for the drylands
Whenever the storms came
And over some time
We both forgot how to swim
Kept creeping along the shore lines
Instead of diving in

And when the waters rose we climbed the highest ground
But they kept on coming, finally pulled us down

If we knew then what we know now
It would be different but I don’t know how
If we knew then what we know now
It would be different, I just don't know how

We can stretch the truth like a shadow in the afternoon sun
We can sell our side of the story like it’s the only one
Maybe we’ll convince them that we never had a chance
But we’ll always know it was only in our hands
