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

    When we used to run together I never felt better. I feel in love with you on that bike trail, you made me realize what my other was doing to me. You gave me the courage to make the change. You showed me that there was better out there. I remember sticking our tongues out at each...

    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...
