Lyrics for Nevertheless

Nevertheless

© 2011 Stephen K. Roberts

Tell me what’s wrong,
Why are you cryin’?
Tell me it’s fine,
I know that you’re lyin’.
Can I ask a question?
Is there anything that I can do?
Do you know the reason?
Nevertheless, the whole world sees you’re blue.

Distant and cold,
Words ringing hollow,
Pulling away,
To where I can’t follow.
Why is this all happening?
Where were you last night (just let me in)?
Who were you this morning?
Nevertheless I’m right here by your side.

We danced in a rain shower (soaked our clothes),
We dried by the fire (in its glow),
Nevertheless you turn and walk away.

Into your past,
Far from our present,
Are you feeling the need,
For something to lament?
Who am I to ask that?
How dare I presume to know your thoughts?
What good is an answer?
Nevertheless, the question still gets asked.

Remember in Paris (what we found),
Turned losing each other upside down,
Nevertheless you turn and walk away.

BRIDGE:
Wait in the wings,
The starlet passing on the spotlight for a ring,
To wear in place of glory.
Cast it aside,
History writes this as the day you lived or died,
It’s time to change the story.

You’re no longer here,
Where are you going?
What becomes of me?
I’ve no way of knowing.
What time are you leaving?
Why can’t you just cash that ticket in?
I’m not done believin’
Nevertheless I’ll help you pack your things.

I’m not gonna shed a single tear,
You go find your future without fear,
Nevertheless you might come back some day.

We danced in a rain shower (soaked our clothes),
We dried by the fire (in its glow),
Nevertheless you turned and walked away.
Nevertheless you turned and walked away.
Nevertheless you turned and walked away.
