And Never Look Back

This song is by Matthew Ryan and appears on the album From A Late Night High Rise (2006).

People and cars on the avenue
But I can't hear a thing 'cause I'm looking for you
I've been haunted by all that I can't have
I should make a list of every near miss
Everything that fell and brushed my fingertips
I'm shattered, gone is the wait and see

Now I'll say goodbye to all of that
Lower my head, turn away and never look back

A quitter never quits, he just changes his mind
This song I sing is true and sublime
It comforts me but it won't pay the rent
I leaned in for to give her a kiss
I spilt her drink, I burnt her wrist
With my cigarette, I'm clumsy when I get close

Now I'll say goodbye to all of that
Lower my head, turn away and never look back

I wanted it all but I'll settle for some
At the end of the day it don't matter what you want
Come the end of days all you get is the truth
On needles and pins the story begins
The world outside, the house lights dim
Well anyway what else can a poor boy do?

Now I'll say goodbye to all of that
Lower my head, turn away and never
Now I'll say goodbye to all of that
Lower my head, turn away and never look back
