lyrics

And So It Goes

i can't bear the thought of ever going back
my head was full of nails my heart was broke and black
i never understood that glimmering you chased
i found it useless so i turned and walked away

where were you when the sun went down
where were you when that sense of loss left town
i don't care if you're worried now
it's too late

the wind blew through the square last night like haunted souls
flags were snapping hard and rattling their poles
i drove down third street and it felt like i was gone
the ghosts of things we said were smoking on the lawn

where were you when the sun went down
where were you when all that hope left town
i don't care if you want me now
it's too late
it's too late

and so it goes
watch it go
watch it go
and you won't know
until you know

i hold no grudge no more though i did for a couple of years
the hate you harbor only welcomes what you fear
i wrote this song while the sun fell behind the hill
the stars look cold but there's a warm light on the sill

where were you when the sun went down
where were you when that sense of loss left town
i don't care if you want me now
it's too late
it's too late
