This tune's about a star junior hockey player in a small town in Ontario. He's the toast of the town until he misses an empty net in the championship game. Now, he spends his days remembering what might've been as he cleans the same ice surface where the near miss took place.

Lyrics

Woke up lying on the ground / head was spinning
Another night out on the town / don’t remember
Know I’m late the kids are skating on ice that ain’t been cleaned today

I was king of this old forgotten town
I skated faster and was tougher pound for pound
On that night their hearts were broken
Frozen moment in time / I can’t forget

I’ve seen the ice
I’ve scored the goals
I’ve felt the pain
I’ve seen the sun rise on a cold November day
But for all the time that passed away I still recall
The way they looked at me the night I went and lost it all

In thirty years I’ve realized
Just before was the best second of all time
Now I know that in that moment
I controlled everything that would happen in my life

I was king of this old forgotten town
I skated faster and was tougher pound for pound
On that night their hearts were broken
Frozen moment in time / I can’t forget

I’ve seen the ice
I’ve scored the goals
I’ve felt the pain
I’ve seen the sun rise on a cold November day
But for all the time that passed away I still recall
The way they looked at me the night I went and lost it all

I drive alone
