What we don't

The first time I met you, you were six foot two or three
I remember you well... I remember
The next time I met you, you were not who you seemed to be
I remember that well... even better

Me, you, a bedroom bathed in blue
A promise left unsaid
Or only in my head
You said to me let's take it to the logical extreme
This place is full of people who are not like you and not like me
Let's see where this could lead?
...I said goodbye

Where would I be if I walked through that door?
Would it all be better than before?
We don't regret what we do, no
Only what we don't

You, me, now I can see all I can see
And it could never be
The life you live is not reality
How could I be taken for a fool?
But I remember how you do the thing you do
...Maybe I just didn't think it through

Where would I be if I walked through that door?
Would it all be better than before?
We don't regret the things that we do, no
Only what we don't....

Counting On Me

If you had given me everything
I'd just walk away
If you could turn the world backwards just for a while so I could see your smile
I'd turn my face
I didn't need the things you promised
Only what was deep inside of me
I didn't want the things you promised
Only the ones that I would choose to be

If you had said here is this golden cage and it's all yours
I would just fly away
If you had given me the life I've always wanted on a table
I'd pass it up day after day, after day
It doesn't mean a thing to me
It doesn't mean a thing

The only one that I can count on is me
If you want a job done right, then do it yourself
Just try it and see
The only one I'm counting on is me

Now if you'd like to come in for a minute
And have some tea and talk awhile
Please come in and have a seat
Tell me everything you're thinking
Let me know that beautiful mind
Let me know what's inside
And when we come to the place and the time
I'll walk you to the door and say goodbye

I want you in my life
If you'll let me live mine

The only one I'm counting on is me
If you want a job done right, then do it yourself
Just try it and see
The only one I'm counting on is me
