I traveled back in time,
but made the same choices again.
If I had made different choices before
I wouldn't be who I am.
I still ordered the chocolate,
There are chocolate stains on my shirt,
I still didn’t say I love you,
Though I knew how much it’d hurt.
I still couldn’t bungee-jump
My future depends upon that fear.
I still let her have my son,
Knowing he wouldn’t last the year.
I still didn’t call you back
After your message on my phone,
And I still kick myself sometimes
Because I ended up alone.
I wish I could be different,
I’m just not sure who’d be left.
We are who we are,
so should leave little to regret.
