What Now

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

But it still 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 it moves so fast when she's tied around my hand

And I guess I could never say no

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

 

 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

 

 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 forgot about my past

Oh where did I go wrong?

Didn't I start off strong?

Or am I just addicted to plan?

 

 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

 

Oh but 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

I'm loyal to the bone, I forget that I'm home

Where do I really belong?

Well this shelter drags me in 

And I find a way to swim

Even though I know I'll drown

 

 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
