    I Just Didn't Realize It At The Time

    Now, its too late.  Or I am letting it be too late.  Sometimes when you go through a door, you can't go back again.  I just wish I could go back in time, don't we all, and change things.  I know now that things would never be the same.  But when I look...

    Went To Bat With A Broken Heart And Swung Long Past The Strikeout.
