"Looking Back on Today" - Lyrics and Music: Kristopher Roe

30th of April, seems like yesterday
Bought a house above the ocean
Where our kids could laugh and play

I called you from Paris to tell you that I
Wrote our names on the observation deck
of the Eiffel Tower.

Remember those nights playing "Summer Wind"
on the jukebox of the bar we used to go

We made out in the bathroom
and you walked me to my house.
I tried to convince you not to go home.

If only I had more time,
I'd take you where you wanted to go.
Italy isn't the same without you here.

If only I had one wish,
I'd want a million trillion lifetimes that I could spend with you.
I'd fall in love with you again and again.

1st of November 1998,
I was thinking of what to say when I would call.
Come over to my house 'cause you're the one for me,
We'll drink cheap wine and watch for shooting stars.

Remember our first apartment
Our couch was never big enough for two,
Still we'd fall asleep in each other's arms
and wake up on the floor
Now looking back it was made for me and you.

If only I had more time,
I'd take you where you wanted to go.
Japan is really nice this time of year.

If only I had one wish,
I'd want a million trillion life times that I could spend with you.
I'd fall in love with you again and again.
