THINGS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

Copyright 2006 william galison/ waking up music


There’s a place I go

Down a lonely road                                                 

Where the ruin of a home remains


And when the moon is right   

I can see a light

In its empty window panes


Things that might have been

If I had only seen

What I see now,

Back then somehow

And turned around


And there’s a old playground

Nearly fallen down

Broken swings on rusted chains


And when the autumn breeze

Rushes through the weeds

I can hear the children playin


Things that might have been

If I had only seen

What I see now,

Back then somehow

And turned around

Things that might have been

If I knew then  what I know now


Two roads

But just one taken

Two roads

And on forsaken


Leading to a life I’ll never know

One heart,

Two Roads


Well, the card arrived

with your name inscribed

And another name below


Though regrets I send

Shall not attend

There’s a place that I must go


Things that might have been

If I had only seen

What I see now,

Back then somehow

And turned around

Things that might have been

If I knew then what I know now
