And this place is still at peace
I think I've found my release
Please don't leave me here
Without another cigarette-smoke embrace
You remember don't you?
Everything is as it always was

CHORUS
It's for the best
And I confess
I'm happy with the way things are

I'm moved, not quite complete
There are things we can't repeat
I will always have this place
And the scent of cheap Italian wine
Can't you remember?
Nothing can be the same again

I remain here like a ghost
I will always make the most
Of doing the right thing
And self-sacrifice is still so blissful
I remember
I still remember

CHORUS

VERSE RIFF ON DRUMS/BASS

And if you don't believe me
Watch me as I quiver at this victory

CHORUS TO END
