You can sell your soul 
But you can't buy it back 
I've spent my whole life 
Working to give you 
Everything you lack 

I would gladly trade 
All of my sympathy 
For sorrow 
If I could have you 
Here with me tomorrow 

So many wasted days 
The past is so hard to get out from under 
So many words that I wish I could say 
The future rattles my bones weak like thunder 

I wish you were here 
So we could walk and talk 
In the soft rain 
Now all that's left of us 
Is a picture sitting in a frame 

Everything I wish for 
Is everything I see 
I remember when your kisses were for me
