Anyway you look at it
The end is just not clear
And I don't want to pretend
There's so much unfinished here
That's the way it is these days
As far as I can tell
In the silent hours that linger on
Beyond all farewells

And I could say a thousand words
and some might be true
and not one of these words
can change you
I know that now

It doesn't seem alright
I pass through the night
it cannot touch me now
it cannot touch me now
just this pulsing heart
on an empty subway train
your voice like a stranger
is a subtle refrain
ringing round my mind
ringing round my mind
ringing round my mind
all the time

And I could say a thousand words
and some might be true
and not one of these words
can change you
I can't change you
No, I can't change you
So, goodbye

    General CommentI love this song! So peaceful-sounding, but the lyrics are so sad. And I love the way the song starts!
