    Long ago
    In someone else's lifetime
    Someone with my name
    Who looked a lot like me
    Came to know
    A girl and made a promise
    She only had to say
    And that's where he would be
    Lately although the feelings run just as deep
    The promise he made has grown impossible to keep
    And yet I wish it wasn't so
    Will she miss me if I go


    In a way
    It's someone else's story
    I don't see myself
    As taking part at all
    The boy that I grew up with
    Finally could see
    The writing on the wall
    Sadly he realized
    He'd left her behind
    And sadder than that
    He knew she wouldn't even mind
    And no there's nothing left to say
    Would she listen if I stay


    It's all very well to say
    "You fool it's now or never"
    I could be choosing
    No choices whatsoever


    I could be in someone else's story
    Someone else's life
    And she could be in mine
    I don't see a reason to be lonely
    I could take my chances
    Further down the line


    And if that boy I knew
    Should ask my advice
    Oh I wouldn't hesitate
    He needn't ask me twice
    "Go now"
    I'd tell him that for free
    The problem is the boy is me
    The story is the boy is me
