Now That It’s Over

Now that it’s over I want to let go
Memories burn like a flame through the snow
It doesn’t feel like it was so long ago

Memories torture as only they can
Broken hearts rattle like rocks in a can
It’s hard to imagine you’re even a man
When that used to be all you could know





Somebody said that the past is not past
When you were present I thought it would last
But time has a habit of running out fast
And everything runs out someday

Do you remember when flames were a spark?
When there was nothing could keep us apart?
Or are you also alone in the dark?
Waiting for something that’s gone

 

I know that it’s over but I can’t let go
I follow the footsteps you left in the snow
You’ve gone above and left me here below
And I don’t know how to move on

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
