He waved hello silent like a mime
We met, there's no changing my mind
I won't walk the stairs with you tonight
Going nowhere

The clock moved a quarter of a turn
The time it took a cigarette to burn
She said you got a lot of things to learn
Going nowhere

I saw you move a certain way
I missed you a lot
Return to this abandoned place
It should've been forgot

Echoes drown the conversation out
Echoes that only seem to bring about
A silent expression, easy read aloud
Going nowhere

The steps made a pattern I'd never seen
I felt like a kid of six or seventeen
I was off in some empty daydream
Going nowhere

It's dead and gone in a matter of fact
It maybe for the best
He said some things you can't take back
Honestly I guess

The old records were sitting on the floor
The ones I can't put on anymore
He walked over to her like before
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Going nowhere
