regret lyrics – anathema

“regret”

as i drift away… far away from you,
i feel all alone in a crowded room,
thinking to myself
“there’s no escape from this
fear,
regret,
loneliness…”

visions of love and hate
a collage behind my eyes
remnants of dying laughter
echoes of silent cries

i wish i didn’t know now that
i never knew then…
flashback
memories punish me again
sometimes i remember all the pain
that i have seen
sometimes i wonder what might
have been…

visions of love and hate
a collage behind my eyes
remnants of dying laughter
echoes of silent cries

and sometimes i despair
at who i’ve become
i have to come to terms
with what i’ve done

the bittersweet taste of fate
we can’t outrun the past
destined to find an answer
a strength i never lost
i know there is a way
my future is not set
for the tide has turned
but still i never learned to live
without regret.
