Matthew Sweet – Nothing Lasts lyrics

If one could
Stop time, or make it up
If two could realize the best of luck
If I could locate a God above
And you only wanted to be loved
Then I'd try to hang on to the past
But you know that nothing, oh no nothing lasts

Nothing lasts..... It's time to
Move on, let the past go
I waited for you here, but you never showed
Although I asked you to let me know
I only felt a cold wind blow
While I tried to hang on to the past
But you know that nothing, oh no nothing lasts

Nothing's in your way
Now you can stand right up and run
Wouldn't even change things
If you took back what you've done
I have tried to hang on to the past
But I couldn't keep my grasp, cause nothing lasts

Nothing lasts
Nothing lasts
