Always Never Now

This song is by Tim Finn and appears on the album Before & After (1993).

Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now
It was the best decision that he ever made
Now he's living with the consequences
He was still a bit green
Like a sheep in a ballroom
She had the devil in her
He couldn't stop himself experimenting in secret
Fire was a constant theme
Now he's glad that it's over
And the horrible feelings gone away
Nothing prepares you
He said "I'd do it all again
Just to be where I am"
Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now
Once he thought it would last forever
But it's always never now
And it seems so long ago now
When he didn't have tha peace in himself
Two overlapping circles
But you can't find the centre in somebody else
And the hardest of hearts
Couldn't fail to weep
Now he's on his way
Throw him a line as he walks in his sleep
Now he's on his way
Like the scales on a fish
They flash and flicker in the sea
But they're dull in the heat of the sun
When his back was to the wall
In a dirty bar in London
He didn't care about the Beatles
She would be angry and frightened
He would be hopeless and guilty
They had to discover that country for themselves
He went through life always
Looking to turn it around
The only way he can work it
Is from the inside
Making things happen from within
Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now
