Pay attention to the people who are around you
pay attention in the here and now
to those who are listening and loving you
and trying to reach you and holding you up
and feeling so sad
feeling like they never mattered
because you don’t see them anymore
It’s right in front of you
but you can’t seem to see it
focused on what was lost instead
of what you kept at hand
it is over
it is never ever finished
still you don’t see them anymore
you can’t see me anymore
What we let slip through our fingers. What we ignore, absorbed in our own little dramas. What we neglect in favor of what’s comfortable and easy. What we forget, in favor of a beautiful lie. What we will regret, once we let the moment fade in our eagerness to grasp something that has already passed.
Ach, und könnte ich doch
Nur ein einziges Mal
Die Uhren rückwärts drehen.
Denn wie viel von dem,
Was ich heute weiß,
Hätte ich lieber nie gesehen.*
Look up. Look out. Look beyond.
See what should be seen.
- Lyrics from Kein Zurück, Wolfsheim.
