The deadbolt on that door was made for you
It waited 20 years for that afternoon
And I should have seen it coming there weren’t no other way
Looking back I guess I knew you couldn’t stay

The answering machine was made for me
Made for all those nights I couldn’t let it be
You told me I’d think different if I knew where you had been
Looking back you always knew how it would end

Looking back it’s all crystal clear of course
All the mysteries I recall in reverse
I can try to make some sense of the events but it’s a fact
That I only understand it looking back

The month of June was made for you and I
It was perfect ‘til the days all passed us by
And you gave me what I needed up until you had to go
Looking back I feel like now at least I know

Looking back it’s all crystal clear of course
All the mysteries I recall in reverse
I can try to make some sense of the events but it’s a fact
That I only understand it looking back

I would do it all so different if I’d think before I act
But I only understand it looking back
