Verse 1

If I had a nickel for every time

I said, hey, look, it's gotta be a sign!

Well, for what it's worth, you were worth the dimes

Spent on wishing wells back when you were mine!

Pre-chorus 1

Wasn't it so beautiful

When the days had a touch of magic?

And the brush of your fingers

On my shoulders made my knees grow weak.

Chorus

But these days I wake

Realizing something's amiss.

Cause when your heart breaks,

You lose a precious fragile piece.

So here's to the brave dreamer

Floating on the clouds of optimism.

And here's to the believer

Seeing darkness as colors through prism.

Here's to the me that's lost

In meadows of time as I pay the cost.

Verse 2

If I had a nickel for every dream

That I mistakenly thought had come true!

Well, for what it's worth, you are worth the screams

That echo in my heart when I miss you.

Pre chorus 2

Wasn't it so beautiful

When each day brought us new happiness?

And the sound of husky voice

Through your lips brought a smile to my face?

Chorus

But these days I wake

Realizing something's amiss.

Cause when your heart breaks,

You lose a precious fragile piece.

So here's to the brave dreamer

Floating on the clouds of optimism.

And here's to the believer

Seeing darkness as colors through prism.

Here's to the me that's lost

In meadows of time as I pay the cost

Bridge

Of loving you the way I did.

Looking back, I look so stupid.

Everybody told me I had lost my mind.

And I swore you were one of a different kind.

Chorus

But these days I wake

Realizing something's amiss.

Cause when your heart breaks,

You lose a precious fragile piece.

So here's to the brave dreamer

Floating on the clouds of optimism.

And here's to the believer

Seeing darkness as colors through prism.

Here's to the me that's lost

In meadows of time as I pay the cost.

Outro

And these days I wake

Realizing something's amiss.

Cause when your heart breaks,

You lose a precious fragile piece.
