This song took years to write, and when i finished it it went on a limited edition split CD EP that i did with Tim Holehouse.


It's not a question of being afraid, no no no, i just can't be bothered
It's not a question of getting laid, no no no, i just can't be bothered
And it's not a question of being in love, no no no, live your life in tatters
And it's not a matter for God above, no no no, it's here and now that matters, yeah

t's not a question of a broken heart, no no, you gotta keep it together
It's not the question of a brand new start, no no no, just that it's not or never... never?
And it's not a question of what to do, no no, no no, just keep on living
But it's not a matter of me and you, me and you and who needs forgiving, no no no...
