Third 2 None - Holding On lyrics

Why can't you see the difference now?
Does it offer the same things it did before?
It won't be a long time now
The times and troubles that you've known won't be seen anymore

Tell me what you see in me
Is it something that should be?
The end of what we know,
Or encouragement to go?

I tried so hard to be
The way I thought I should
But now as I look back
I realize I've wasted all my time

Is it just a spoiled dream?
Or is that the way it seems?
We could have done it all
But we never even tried

Why did it have to stop
We could have reached the top
We never saw the chance
And we can't change the past
