LOOK FORWARD

I guess no one ever taught you how to say goodbye
They let you proceed, naive
They never taught you how to close your eyes
But never gave you anything to see
After all, when you’re driving away
Looking forward and in the mirror are the same
After all, everything I’ve had to say
The silence they gave you is all you have to blame

So you’ll keep driving, driving, driving, driving
Hope to come across another life naturally
Just as you did with me
You’ll keep on driving, driving, driving, driving
I hope you’ll look forward rather than back at me

Because you can’t move on
If you don’t go down the road
You can’t move on
If you never leave your home

Big city lights will guide you down the line
I imagine they’ll lead you straight into sin
And those iron and concrete walls won’t respond to your crying
They’ll only trap all of your fears within
Where no one can hear you
Where no one will know your name
But they’ll know you will donate trust
And the silence they’ll give you is all you’ll have to blame

So you’ll keep driving, driving, driving, driving
Hope to come across another life naturally
Just as you did with me
You’ll keep on driving, driving, driving, driving
I hope you’ll look forward rather than back at me

And then you’ll piece it all together
No one can live forever
No, not even you
Despite what you knew
But you’ll shrug it off like whatever
Though no one can live forever
No, not even you
What did I tell you?
