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'
