Living in the past will bring you nothing but regret
The longer that you stay away the sooner you’ll forget
About the blessings of the present and the life that we have built
You can’t hold on to love if you are holding on to guilt

I feel you growing distant, more with every passing day.
I’ve tried to make it better but I don’t know what to say
You say you need some space and time, I guess I understand
I f I cannot change your mind, I’ll still do the best I can
But don’t stay away too long…
Please find a way to make your way back home

We all have our issues that we’re trying to figure out
Until you search your heart and soul there will always be that doubt
Of what you might have been or had or did if you had tried
Until you reconcile your past you won’t be satisfied

You have a man who loves you, but I guess it’s not enough
Will you be fit to handle it when the road we’re on gets rough?
So take some time to think it over, really think it through
And when you’ve found your answers I’ll be waiting here for you
But don’t stay away too long…
Please find a way to make your way back home

The love I thought we shared is now a game of hide and seek
I try to touch your heart but it is always out of reach
I wish that I could make you see you have all that you need
But what good are my words if you choose not to believe

I feel you slipping far away to where I do not know
If you need to leave for a while I’ll sadly let you go
Before you walk on out that door make sure you take your key
But that those locks will be the same I cannot guarantee
So don’t stay away too long…
When you come back then I just might be gone
