When we were young the things that mattered
Could break or shatter
The world in a day.

Girls could talk about guys for hours.
Their graceful powers would keep us [away/awake]

But people—
Have ways of growing old.
Stories that we hold
Are legends now.

Falling forward, looking back
Falling forward, looking back.

About the way things happen.
And the way they had been
But aren't now.

Because the things that matter
Still break or shatter
Either way.

Falling forward, looking back.
Falling forward, looking back.

And this is where he lives
And this is where he falls to pieces
Laughing at things she'll never see
[Dreaming of things he'll never see]

And this is how it is:
When all the colors come together,
It's black
And you can never go back.

Falling forward, looking back.
