You never liked this place where we'd been living all along
So, you packed up your things and bought a one-way ticket home
Leaving never hurt as much as being left behind

I would change my life, I would make it right
I would change my life, if you would only change your mind

I have spent my hours on some misbegotten dream
I have spent my money on some foolish hearted things
I have spent my memories on old embittered wine

I would change my life, I would make it right
I would change my life, if you would only change your mind

Birds are flying out to spend the winter time
The skies are turning blue to grey
The fire we started here will soon be burning out
And he gets golder everyday

I wish that I could find the words to make you come back home
I wish that I could say the things you needed for so long
I wish that you could see me now maybe then you'd find

I would change my life, I would make it right
I would change my life, if you would only change your mind

I would change my life, I would make it right
I would change my life, if you would only change your mind
