better things to think about

Have you ever thought back to the past
wishing you could be there
now that it all makes sense
now that everything is clear
so easy in a life pre-charted
you'd always make the right call
what potential would be reached
avoiding where you used to fall
And it's a nice thing to think about
when your filled with doubt
when everthing's chaotic
you just want to get out
It's a nice thing to think about
as mistakes will pile high
and if the were correct
the limit would be the sky
Some times it's the only compensation
to change what once was real
but you know that it would last
and pain is all you'll feel
You go about lamenting
the consequence of what you didn't know
but we're all in some way ignorant
and time must let it show
It's a nice thing to think
about when your with doubt
when everything's chaotic
you just want to get out
It's a nice thing to think about
when there nothing else to do
but there is something to be done
and you know that's it's true
Now each day that passes by
you may ask yourself "why?"
but if you've questioned what you've done
then the truth's already won
so hold on to what you know
and never let yourself go
history's not gravity
why let regret be you undertow
