I should have given you
That dance you wanted
All that time ago
I should have given you that dance.

It was so long ago now…
But with you gone forever
The regret hits hard.
The thoughts shouldn’t be a concern
But with your death
The regret and the memories
They hit hard.

We were only kids…. Not even teenagers
But I must have been
Such a **** at the time…
I should have given you
Just one dance…
It’s probably all you wanted.

And now in hindsight
I can’t even apologize
These thoughts shouldn’t be of concern
But with your death
The memories… of how I acted
… We were only kids, not even teenagers
But I should have given you
That dance you wanted
All that time ago…
This one has a sort of sad back story. Basically, way back in middle school (I'm currently in college) this girl named Paige had this huge crush on me and would always want me to dance with her just once at every single one of the school dances (these were nearly every week). Well I would always say no every time naturally (at one point I even think I screamed in her face... or maybe it was her friend), and looking back I must have been pretty mean. So about 2 years ago I found out that she had died, and as I look back at her Facebook page all I can think is how mean I must have been all that time ago.
