Verse 1:
It starts with
one day in the winter of ’83
February 27'th was the day I was conceived
I still can’t believe that the father of mine
left behind our precious time
(For all I know)
All I know
you might be screaming on the inside
feelin’ that your soul died
contemplatin’ suicide
Fine, fine, fine!
It’s too bad there’s no rewind for this life of mine
(What a shame)
It’s such a shame
This is not a silly child’s game
It’s never fun to place the blame
It’s like you don’t know my name
It hard to be strong when I never really knew
Waste away the memories
(As I watch you fall)
Watch you fall
Fall into the darkest hole as you land on the hottest coal where you live your death so
What was meant to be is now a sad memory of the days when our (lives were right)

Chorus:
Our lives were right
We saw the light
But for now
Nothing really matters
You tried to fight
with evil spite
but for now
nothing really matters

Verse 2:
One day in the winter of ‘83
I wish I would have known just how messed up life could be
When you held me in your arms with tears in your eyes
So young so blind
(I tried so hard)
I tried so hard
Despite all those words you used violently
All the pain inflicted so silently
And you wonder why I’m never smiling!?
Well I’m surprised you got so far!
Wishing things were like they were before
It’s about time that we ended this war
Not that you can’t hurt me again
But at least I know inside (this is the end)
Is the end
End of the times when you made us cry and the feelings of hate dwelled up inside so
What was meant to be is now a sad memory of the days when our (lives were right)

Chorus:
Our lives were right
We saw the light
But for now
Nothing really matters
He tried to fight
With evil spite
But for now
Nothing really matters
(Repeat 2x)

I put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
(Repeat 2x)

Our lives were right
We saw the light
But for now
Nothing really matters
He tried to fight
With evil spite
But for now
Nothing really matters
