Things Since Then


I can't place it
I can't defend it
Something I've known all of my life

I can't hide it
I can't defy it
One way or another where going to get things right

Things since then are memories
All the years and changes
Things since then have carried on

But I can never forget
Things since then

Bike riding down Osborne Avenue
All of the faces that I once knew
Found my pace down Canal Road
Heading down to Port with my pocket full of gold

Things since then are memories
All the years and changes
Things since then have carried on

But I can never regret
Things since then


Smiling faces with tears in their eyes
We never had the chance to say goodbye
Now we're here and we're not going away
The past will always remain


Things since then are memories
All the years and our laughter and pain

Things since then have carried on
How could we ever forget
Things since then

I can't place it
I can't pretend it wasn't real
I can't defend it
Not knowing what to feel

Things since then
Things since then
