Verse 1

I never thought you'd abandon me across the street

With these stinging thorns right under my feet.

But here we are today.

You're gone and you won't answer my texts.

I don't know what to say.

And I don't know what I should do next.

Chorus

But if there's one thing I know about myself,

It's that the day I recoil into my shell,

I'll never ever look back.

It's a quality I lack.

And today I found my way.

And today I heard myself say

I'll never ever look back.

I'll never ever look back again.

Verse 2

We call what we had love, but what kind of love is it

When you just stood there, hands up in defeat?

And here we are today.

You're asleep, and I'm up writing this.

And I think, come what may,

My heart will be intact, just polished.

Chorus

Cause if there's one thing I know about myself,

It's that the day I recoil into my shell,

I'll never ever look back.

It's a quality I lack.

And today I found my way.

And today I heard myself say

I'll never ever look back.

I'll never ever look back again.

Bridge

I used to tell them, you won't feel any pain,

If you just let it go, like the clouds let go of rain.

Yeah, I can't burn the pictures yet,

But I'll give it time, and I bet,

I can shove the memories in the fondest drawer in my chest.

But I'll never look back at it, it's for the best.

Chorus

Cause if there's one thing I know about myself,

It's that the day I recoil into my shell,

I'll never ever look back.

It's a quality I lack.

And today I found my way.

And today I heard myself say

I'll never ever look back.

I'll never ever look back again.
