Works Out

one day you’ll look back on that moment
you could have but didn’t because
it just didn’t seem to be worth it
so you put the potential on pause

one day you’ll look back on your reasons
to levy your options against
to find they have passed like the seasons
and like me they came and they went

then instead of wondering how you brought yourself to kiss me
you’ll wonder why i haven’t called and realize you miss me

and when you see me except it’s a better me
you’ll wish that you’d been there to cheer me

dear me

one day i’ll look back on that moment
you could have but didn’t ah well
it probably didn’t seem worth it
i didn’t know and i couldn’t tell

i had an idea of your reasons
the details didn’t matter to me
because i was changing like the seasons
becoming a much better me

and if by the end the change makes me a better than you
then it’s for the best maybe i’d find reason to be through

with you

it all works
it all works out in the end
it all works
it all works out
