It's been a while,
I heard you were back
Here in our home town
I didn't believe it though
You disappeared years ago
Fresh out of high school
You went to find yourself
Chase your dreams
Now you're standing in front of me
Tell me who are you now?
Because I know
You're not the same girl
I dated back when
Did you catch your dreams
Finish college
Start a family?
Me?
I'm the same drunken boy you left
The one who wanted to be your man
You left before I had the chance
to ask for your hand
There's a place just for me
At that old bar on Sycamore street

It's been a while,
Yet seeing you now
Brings back the pain
Do you feel it
No
You're happy in your new life
Don't worry about me
I'll be fine
I got a fifth of Jim Beam
No, my wife won't care
She doesn't exist
Haven't loved another
I haven't felt that hunger
You're the only one
I've ever loved
No one else,

It's been a while
Bite my tongue
I'll never say these things
We're over
We're done
Fighting tears
I turn away
You won't even see my face
I'm going back to that place
Just for me
In that old bar
On Sycamore Street
