A Foregone Conclusion

from by Asela Perera



There's a map with the lines and dilemma,
I'm quite sure that I leave tonight,
A foregone conclusion, a quiet conversation,
In the dawn, the breaking of light.
And I will be just a flickering scene,
Just a frame in the story of you and another,
A foregone conclusion, a fallback solution,
To your convenient dream.

Dream. Dream.
There's a map with fault lines and conclusions,
Of where I should go and where you should be,
A foregone conclusion, a silent realization,
These lines were all drawn in by me.
So I take belief while you find your peace,
Not one fault is bigger than the other,
A foregone conclusion, a calming surrender,
To love, to life and to dreams.

Dream. Dream.
If you should find a day that you would call my name,
Remembering me right by your side,
For hopes of a dance, for a minute, one last chance,
Just think twice and please realize.
That I’m a foregone conclusion,
A foregone conclusion,
A foregone conclusion, a foolproof delusion,
To your convenient dream.
