I’m standing in the alley with a cigarette
smoke drifting away
A lighted street shows a passing silhouette
nothing’s here to stay
Only a dull sorrow
when the hour is grey
Holding off tomorrow
at the edge of the day
And I, still signing ‘lots of love’
and writing down a plot
Perhaps nothing’s ever good enough
but I still say ‘why not’

I’ve heard nothing’s better left unsaid
and I wonder what I think of that
