WHAT WE ARE
(MARK)
 

OVER THE LAWN AND THROUGH THE TREES,
DIRTY FACE AND SKINNED UP KNEES,
MAKE THE RULES UP AS WE'D PLAY,
IMAGINATION RULED THE DAY,

'CUZ I WAS GONNA BE A BASEBALL PLAYER,
SHE WAS GONNA BE A MOVIE STAR,
BUT LOOK AT US NOW, AND WHAT WE ARE.

LATER ON AT THE AWKWARD AGE,
CONFUSED IN OH SO MANY WAYS,
BROKEN HEARTS WOULD NEVER END,
I GAINED A LOVE, I LOST MY FRIEND,
'CUZ I WAS GONNA BE THE NEXT JOHN LENNON,
WHE WAS GONNA DRIVE A PINK JAGUAR,
BUT LOOK AT US NOW AND WHAT WE ARE.

REGRETFUL AND RESIGNED AT BEST,
THE GUILT IT WEIGHED UPON MY CHEST,
I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR FOR FORGIVENESS,
I PICK MY SHIRT UP OFF YOUR FLOOR,
AND SLOWLY WANDER TOWARDS YOUR DOOR.

IT'S SO EASY TO WALK AWAY

BUT LOOK AT US NOW AND WHAT WE ARE.
