If we smile like we used to

Can the past be erased?

Can we dissolve the wall between us

Etched with my mistakes?

They say that time can heal all wounds

Can it repair ours?

And if we hold each other's hands

Can we ignore the scars?

If we take the box of memories

Down from their dusty shelf

Will you be able to forgive me?

And can I forgive myself?

And if I wrap you in my blackened arms

Can I take away your pain?

Can I lift the life-debt from my shoulders

And bring you back again?
