  • Lyrics: FOUND A PHOTO IN THE BASEMENT, IT TOOK ME BY SURPRISE, YOU AND ME WITH ARMS AROUND EACH OTHER, SUCH HAPPINESS IN YOUR EYES, BUT THE PICTURE FRAMED IN MY MIND, PAINTS A VERY DIFFERENT SCENE, IT'S ME WALKING AWAY, LOOKING BACK AT YOU, YOU'RE WEARING TEARS FROM A VERY BAD DREAM. AND IT STILL HAUNTS ME TO THIS DAY, IF I COULD CHANGE ONE THING, IT'S BE THE LINE WE CROSSED FROM FRIENDS TO LOVERS, NEVER ABLE TO RETURN TO THE OTHER SIDE. IF I COULD CHANGE ONE THING, LIKE PUTTING QUARTERS IN THE CANDY MACHINE, WHEN YOU REALIZE YOU'VE MADE A MISTAKE, AND IT ALL SPILLS OUT, AND YOU CAN'T GO BACK, WHICH IS WHERE I WOULD TAKE US, IF I COULD CHANGE ONE THING. LAYING UNDERNEATH THE PHOTO, WAS THE CARD YOU GAVE TO ME, THE ONE THAT HAD THE LIPSTICK SEAL ON THE ENVELOPE, AND SAID THAT OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE, FOREVER, AND ALWAYS, WAS HOW YOU SIGNED THE BOTTOM LINE, AND THOUGH I KNEW THE TRUTH, I STILL FUELED THE FLAMES, OF A FIRE THAT RAN OUT OF TIME, AND IT STILL HAUNTS ME TO THIS DAY. CHORUS BRIDGE: I REMEMBER THE FEELING OF OUR LAST GOODBYE, AS I HELD YOUR FACE IN MY HANDS THINKING I WAS SO CLEVER. BRUSHED AWAY THE HAIR FROM YOUR CRYING EYES, TURNED AND WALKED OUT OF YOUR LIFE, FOREVER, AND IT STILL HAUNTS ME TO THIS DAY. CHORUS WITH: BUT YOU MADE ME SEE, IT WAS JUST ME, THAT NEEDED THE CHANGING, IF I COULD CHAN GE ONE THING.
