Now

Now

Don’t ask me where im going
Don’t ask me what I’ve done
Don’t ask for my prediction
For a race that’s still to run
Don’t ask me why I’m turning
Don’t ask me why I’m through
Why I’m running from what they’re all running to

Don’t ask me if I worry
If you care about my fate
Don’t ask me if I’m carrying
My share of someone’s hate
Don’t ask me which I’m taking
Of the steps your life has laid
What I’m making of my choices still unmade

I was drowning in the questions
Till I made it to the sea
And the fire among the dunes had just one thing to ask of me
What would you like to leave behind you now?

The glasses that disguise you
From the colours of the sun
The uniform that you’ve outgrown
Now you’re the only one
The backback full of burdens
That were never yours to choose
Remind you just how much you have to lose

You were laden by your luggage
But you made it to the sea
Inviting you to throw it on the fire and you’ll be free
What would you like to leave behind you now?

Don’t ask me to believe in any blood that stains the clay
When we could leave it for the waves to wash away

Because the moon’s the only master
Of the sand we claim to own
Living in the past is as fruitless as a stone

What would you like to leave behind?

What would you like to leave behind you?

What would you like to leave behind you now?
