Don't look forward, To what the future holds
Don't look forward, Tomorrow never knows

Another rundown theatre, framing fading glory
A failing dance hall for the faintest curtain call
We faithful few, not laughing at you, laughing with you
We loved, you lost, you fell, it cost the earth

Don't look forward
Past and present, future ghosts
Don't look forward
Do we really want to know?

Just another throw, just another go
No-one's gonna know
Carry on, with the show

We knew all the lines, your finest hour in half the time
There for every step, every ep',
except the final

Heaven knows we need you now, in these strangest times
These strangest days, Strangeways here we come

You made us laugh, you made us cry
You shone for all of us
Tread lightly now our diamond in the rough

We don't look forward
I guess we do not want to know
