about

Sapient Network emailed me this awesome backing track, so I wrote lyrics for it and sang them, but I wanted to record an acoustic version, for Honesty And Thorns, so I learned the music and played it all on acoustic guitar.

lyrics

Sitting in the place where we had always shared our time
Remembering when all the words in both our lives would rhyme
Now a single shadow casts its shape across the floor
There's no use looking for you you don't live here anymore

I'd like to see your smile but you're in another land
I'd like to feel that feeling when i used to hold your hand

No use looking back, gotta walk into the future
No use looking back, there's nothing there for me
No use looking back, got to try living without you
No use looking back, it's time for me to see what i can be

Once there was a time when everything was new
Spectrum colours sparkled in the early morning dew
But now the leaves are turning and the nights are getting long
I tell myself it's right though i am feeling like it's wrong

I'd like to hear your laughter but now you're far away
Wish i'd loved you better when i saw you every day

No use looking back, gotta walk into the future
No use looking back, there's nothing there for me
No use looking back, got to try living without you
No use looking back, it's time for me to see what i can be

No use looking back, gotta walk into the future
No use looking back, there's nothing there for me
No use looking back, got to try living without you
No use looking back, it's time for me to see what i can be
No use, No use looking back
No use
