no matter. try again. fail again. fail better.


it's good to see you're feeling better
it's good to see you at all
arriving in your favourite sweater
yer boots are still in the hall

and you won't get let down this time
if you don't let me lift your hopes too high

take consolation from the small things
nobody died I suppose
nobody lost an eye, nobody lost their life
but we came pretty fucking close

you return and all the joy in the world is in your eyes
it's tempting to lift my hopes up high

i'm sorry for all the deceit
i'm sorry I did not grow up
all the things I said didn't matter
they mean a million times as much as they did at the time

so come on, let's lift our hopes up high
