What Now

V1: Well the wind pulls me in, a feeling that I thought I lost

But still it affects me like before, there I am and I’m 18

And I’m scared for what’s ahead, too afraid to let someone know

Well the time moves so fast when she’s tied around my hand

And I guess I could never say no

Well it blows me once again and further back I am

I can feel the cold and see the snow

And I’m smiling cause I’m young and I’m ordinary now

And the band is just about to play

 

C: If I knew then what I know now

Well I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now

 

V2: Well old friends line the streets pointing up at me

I feel like I’m on display

Oh yeah we drift apart, but both sides had it hard

I know I can’t be one to blame

Sometimes it’s for the better

And others I feel wrong

Like I decided to forget about my past

Oh where did I go wrong?

Didn’t I start off strong?

Or am I just addicted to the plan?

 

C: If I knew then what I know now

I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Oh it brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now

 

V3: Maybe I’m not doomed, it seems there’s always room

I can change the future in the now

But the past I can’t repeat, no I’d only find deceit

And besides I know those answers now

Well I’m loyal to the bone

I forget that I’m home

Where do I really belong?

This shelter drags me in

And I find a way to swim

Even though I know I’ll drown

 

C: If I knew then what I know now

I know I wouldn’t be here

And I’m glad the worst

Brought me here first

Instead of wasting all the good times out

So what now
