You're not looking back

God speed, darling

Fare thee well

Take care on the road ahead

Tonight i'll rest 

This weary heart

And climb into an empty bed

As voices on the midnight air

Sing lullabies we used to share

But you

You're not looking back

-

No, you just walk

And i just watch

Wishing we could turn back time

As all past ways

Are better days

Never to escape my mind

There's torture in these trembling hands

And footsteps on the fragile sands

But you

You're not looking back

-

And memories rest

As feelings fade

But how can i forget your kiss?

When all our signs

Were so aligned

Who knew we could come to this?

Dead leaves fall on holy ground

And i'm begging you to turn around

But you

You're not looking back

-

No, you just walk

And i just watch

As rosy dawn turns cold and grey

Once we loved

Now we lose

And now there's nothing left to say

So tears descend from darkened eyes

And whispered words are sad goodbyes

But you

You're not looking back
