You Never Thought Twice

By Bruce Clifford

Born out of a new year
Comes along a missing tear
Side by side beneath the shroud
Hold the course and sailing proud

Taken the time out to forgive
Living large, learning how to live
Deep within these finite walls
All the men coming back for more

You didn't listen the first time I told you
Now you're paying for this for the rest of your life
You could have found a better way, but you didn't listen
But who am I to tell you what is wrong and what is right
You never thought twice

Born out of a new year
Feed the pain and annoy the fear
Setting the pace of long ago
Taking in the glance that none of us know

You didn't listen the first time I told you
Now you're paying for this for the rest of your life
You could have found a better way, but you didn't listen
But who am I to tell you what is wrong and what is right
You never thought twice

You never thought twice about her
You never thought twice about us
You never thought twice about them
You never thought twice about your friends

You never thought twice about leaving
You never thought twice about believing
You never thought twice about walking away
You never thought twice about wanting to stay

You never thought twice about her
You never thought twice about her
About her

Born out of a new year
