After the Fact

I wouldn’t ask if I saw you were in a rush, but it’s half past ten and I’m the only one on the bus

Please slow down, let me have a look
The roundabout here was a corner before and it was there we took

An oath of allegiance
Just look what time does to a promise

Something I brought upon myself
(Think what I did could be seen as something of a brave thing)
(What I did was the least expensive thing)

If I saw you now, I could say that I kept the pact
I could say I’ve been true, but that’d be after the fact

To be honest It wasn’t something I thought I’d do
To be honest, I never planned to give up anything for you

Now look where it brought me
Just look what time does to a promise

Something I brought upon myself
(Couldn’t do something like this without intention)
(Not as if I did it behind my own back)

Here to the right, my only proper home
(Told them I would bring all the money on Monday)
This is my only proper home
(Anything on two wheels and my blood runs cold)
