3 AM, give or take
I’m falling wide asleep, fast awake
In another night’s daydream the mistakes
That I made all play out in my head

An errant memory unprovoked
And it’s embarrassing, I’m exposed
I can feel it haunting me like a ghost
Would- and could- and should-haves left for dead

I know I know I know
There’s no “reset”

But…

Time and time again
I look back at where I’ve been
And I wonder where I’d be
If I’d done it differently
Though they say hindsight’s 20/20

Hah…

In each relationship, friend or “faux”
We spin the wheel of fate, watch it go
And with every choice we make, we won’t know
How the story ends until it ends

There’s no stopping once it’s begun
The moments fall in place, one by one
And at last when all is said, all is done
Though I wear a cracked rose-colored lens

Between the he said, she said, they said, you said, I can’t follow
Replays, misplays, dismays, from today to-morrow
Taken chances, missed romances, joy and sorrow
All decided on a whim

Every now and then
I look back at where I’ve been
Would it turn out just the same?
Maybe I’m the one to blame?
Oh I can feel myself regressing

Whoa, time and time again
When I look back and I pretend
I imagine where I’d be
If I’d done it differently
But is it worth the second-guessing?

Time and time again
I look back at where I’ve been
And I wonder where I’d be
If I’d done it differently
But is it worth the second-guessing?

Whoa, time and time again
When I look back and I pretend
I imagine where I’d be
If I’d done it differently
Though they say hindsight’s 20/20

Hah…
