Your picture was in the paper today
You know, you still look good in white
I guess you found someone that makes you smile
For awhile I thought I might

You're the talk of the town today
And your friends are all aglow
Don't think I'm not happy for you
But I guess I wish I didn't know

There's a time to take a breather
And there's a time to move along
You can find a new perspective
When you shift to "retrospective"
But you just can't stay too long

And there are times that I miss those days
But I won't regret a thing
My life right now is where I want to stay
I guess that takes away the sting
