Too many irreversible things have happened
Too many irreversible things have happened


Like when you broke the beautiful vase my mother had given me
Like when he kissed your hands in that cafe

Like when I said he must love you
Like when you said he didn’t mean it


Too many irreversible things have happened
Too many irreversible things have happened


Like the war in Syria
Like the little boy found on the Mediterranean shores

Like when Trump got elected


Like when you said I’m sorry
Like when I said I love you


Too many irreversible things have happened
Too many irreversible things have happened


Like when I left home and I never returned
Like even when I returned, there was no home anymore

Too many irreversible things have happened
Too many irreversible things have happened
