What Did We Know?

from by Rachel Rose Mitchell

lyrics

It's been so long since we began.
It seems so long ago
that in the name of loyalty
we started on our own.
Answering the call of a house we once called home,
we knew that we were right.
What did we know?

We swore that we understood this wasn't a game,
but somehow we found ourselves fanning the flames.
Those who cautioned and abandoned us, they were the same.
I saw them turn away.

It's easy to look back and say what we'd do
if only we'd waited, if only we knew
nothing in this world could make up for what we'd lose,
the price we had to pay.

Oh, what did we know?
We gambled an unknown price.
I don't know where I'm going, but I cannot stay here.
The lights have gone out and it's over.

Though we could ask ourselves "what have we done?"
maybe our regrets are best left unsung.
Wishing won't absolve us of all that we have won.
And what scares me more than anything...

If we would choose the past,
we'd probably choose the same.

Oh, what did we know?
We gambled an unknown price.
I don't know where I'm going, but I cannot stay here.
The fires burned out and it's over.

What happened to our guiding light?
When did the dream decay?
It's too cold out in the night
when starlight melts away.

We swore that we understood this wasn't a game
but somehow we found ourselves fanning the flames.
What we have lost we can never regain
and I'm sorry.

Oh, what did we know?
We gambled an unknown price.
I don't know where I'm going, but I cannot stay here.
There's nothing left here now it's over.

Oh, what did we know?
We gambled an unknown price.
I don't know where I'm going, but I cannot stay here.
No life in your eyes. It's all over.
