When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

[Breathing]

There's buzzin' and ringin' in my ear

And I wonder, "Where do I go from here?"

The moments missed, the tickin' of time

I suppose this life is mine, all mine

I remember a time when my mind was clean and clear.

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

 

I remember the color of your eyes changed from blue to black

My fingers twist in a fist behind your back

I crumble and I cry

I took a long hard breath and die

I don't remember what I did

I don't remember what I said

I don't remember attackin'

If I could bend the bands of time, if could reel it in

And, in the mirror, who is that lookin' back

And, I'm scared of whoever this is livin' in my skin.

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

 

I'm sweatin' with a pillow over my face

Thinkin' back to exactly the time and place.

Darlin', it was all for you.

I believed all the things you said to me were true.

You know I love you to death, my dear, you know I do.

How can I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?

How do I undo the damage I have done?
