The Way It Should Have Been
Sometimes I see it in your eyes ---
This hope I share with you.
Sometimes we talk about it ---
But, we know it can't come true.
If it can never be the way
we thought when it began,
we'll take it one day at a time ---
knowing that it should have been.
I see the way it should have been
reflected in your eyes.
We knew when it all started
we'd have to pay the price.
Inside our hearts, I'm sure we knew
that we could never win.
But, we found the strength to let it be ---
Knowing that it should have been.
We knew it should have been
much more than it is now.
Though the chances were so slim,
we tried it anyhow.
It breaks my heart to realize
that someday it must end.
So, let's just always share the dream
of the way it should have been.
