All that matters now

Don't look back and tell me there's a lifetime to

Be saved. You know we're done and now is now

And there's a future in the way. Don't sell me stuff

That's got no life or one foot in the grave. You're tired

Of me and I'm tired of you so tell me 'what's to save?'


I cannot love a wooden heart or one that's gone to stone

Nor can I warm an arctic heart or a ticker made of bone

I don't pretend that you're at fault I know where blame

Belongs, so don't look back, I've got a plaque that says

'I got it wrong'


I'm sorry life was wasted and if I could work the clock

I'd take us back to where we met say 'Hello' and just

Walk off. I know you've got a reason to maintain this

Cold façade, but surely all that matters now is that we

Both click on 'Restart'
