Well, it seemed like the thing to do
I never felt right about leaving you
Gave me a chance to show what I had learned
Put my best foot forward on the bridges that we burned

Talked a lot of talk
Dreamed the biggest dreams
Time travel does not
Live up to what it seems

Honey and aspirin
Bitter pills and saccharine

Well, it seemed like the thing to do
I didn't know what we'd get ourselves into
"Hey! How are you? Has it been so long?"
Has something changed, or am I playing it wrong?

Laughed a lot of laughs
Screamed a lot of screams
Made a lot of noise
Better than it seems

Honey and aspirin
Bitter pills and saccharine
Guess I should have known...

I was glad to see you there
I wasn't sure if you'd still care
To reconcile the past, I was not aware
Meant the present vanished in the air

Honey and aspirin
Bitter pills and saccharine
I guess I should have known
When to leave well enough alone
