Where did we go wrong?
When did our innocent laughs
Turn to screams of horror?
We were young.
We had lives to live,
But they were too soon,
Ripped from our fingertips
My chance to smile,
Became my time to cry

If only we had known
I would have kissed you goodbye,
I wouldn’t have cried so hard,
At least knowing you understood
And yet I’m here
Wondering where we got so lost
