"A dream will only be a dream until you work hard to make it a reality."

Your smile haunts my memory
You were the only one who completely understood me
It’s such a shame; we could’ve been more than friends
But I was too afraid to love you like that
Wherever you are in the world tonight
I bet you know I hope your life is going right

And I taught you how to dance with me in the rain
You memorized every little etch on my face
You helped to ease my blindness, see the world in a whole new way
It’s so sad…I never got the chance to say
I love you

Taking a leap of faith is oftentimes the way to go
It’s too bad we were both naïve and didn’t know
You never held my hand or kissed me in some special way
But your eyes said everything we could not explain
At fourteen, starting high school together, the beginning of everything
Looking for love in all the wrong places


When you hear me on the radio someday
I hope you know that rags to riches doesn’t mean a thing
When I find the courage to find you one day
I hope we will learn, trust, and say:

I remember teaching you how to dance in the rain
Do you still think about me every day?
You eased my tension, taught me how to fly
It’s a shame it took me this long to realize…


The author's comments:
"Lost Chances" is about somebody looking back on a certain love. They didn't realize it was love until it was all over and they had gone their separate ways. This song is about how they regret not knowing their friendship was something more and what they would do if they could go back and realize it.
