Lyrics

I used to think
Wherever I wander
I never would ever
Ever come to [want/war?]
But that's all gone now
And I don't worry
If the future's for me and my friends now
I just don't know

'Cause living is with us
[It takes gone?]
Once it has left us
Said the leaver don't know
But I'm still alive now
And I don't worry
When I go down
Don't let me go slow

If love was a word
That no one could follow
It was a message
That was run in the air
I'd rather be lost now
Than following nothing
And really left thinking
Unable to care
