Light the match, it’s all I have
I struck the book with my last match
The candle burned so soft and slow
I felt the warmth; I felt its glow

Salt-tasting tears, they roll off of my lips
One for each day I’m inside this
House; it’s a trap, one I can’t quite escape
So pretend it’s the place that I love

I won’t let it pass me by again
I won’t let it pass me by again

The grass was clipped, the summer sun
Was beating down on my front yard
All the boys and girls would laugh
I watched them through the cupboard’s crack

Place all your bets and watch me lose
The life that I got, but never used
Dream every night that one would come true
But only bad ones ever do

I won’t let it pass me by again
I won’t let it pass me by again

My heart beats way too fast to let regret sit in my lap
I won’t let it pass me by again
I won’t let it pass me by
I won’t let this one pass me by

I won’t let this one pass me by
I won’t let this one pass me by
I won’t let this one pass me by
I won’t let this one pass me by again
