Umphrey's McGee > Songs > Rocker Part 2 > Lyrics

Sooner over later is when I'd hoped to see you again
The note that ended last time still rings in my head
Never was a way for me to offer any help
And when I looked for reference it wasn't on the shelf
And all the while through every mile I should have spoken up
Living here in retrospect it makes it tough
Finally forever seems to be too far away
As soon as I stop reaching you'll forget my name

The closer that I look into the offerings we've made
Feeling more the orphan than your last mistake
And any reason given, had I listened, couldn't say
Enough to be an answer that I wouldn't even take
But ultimately you could never be the only one
Something sad about the fact what's done is done
And turning over everything there's nothing more to say
Burning all the pages til the ashes blow away
