They say hope begins in the dark
That faith is the bird that flees light when the sky is still dim
But with every tomorrow we carry our past
It echoes beneath our feet
There are no clean slates.

Second chances are earned in choices we make
In what we choose to forget
And in what we forgive
With each choice we make
We are somewhere new

But with each step I take
Your memory haunts
I never used to dream
But till now, when I close my eyes
I see you
