When I saw her standing there, with her bright eyes and shining hair
She was looking back at me
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk and some aren't meant to say a thing
But when she opened up her mouth and that sweet voice came out
I lost track of my own name

[ Chorus ]
Now she's found herself, and I lost mine
And I'm just another guy who can't give her anything

Well the drifter,
He holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank
And Lord knows, I can't change
Sounds better in the song
Than it does with hell to pay

I might as well of slipped that ring on your finger from a window of a van
As it drove away

[ Chorus ]

Dreams are given to you when you're young enough to dream them
Before they can do you any harm
They don't start to hurt, until you try to hold on to them after seeing what they really are
She used to dream them with me, every single crazy one
Until they started hurting her too, now she's got some of her own
And outgrowing me, might be the best thing for her she's ever done

A light that shines as bright as hers can't be kept in the shadows for too long
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give
Can't just sit at home alone
Lord, she's give me everything and never wanted anything I couldn't give
Just what was inside of me

[ Chorus ]
