Tame Impala – Posthumous Forgiveness

Posthumous Forgiveness Lyrics:

Ever since I was star boy
No one else compared to you, no way
I always thought heroes stay close
Whenever troubled times arose

I didn’t know
Ain’t always how it goes

Every single word you told me
I believed without a question, always
To save all of us, you told us both to trust
But now I know you only saved yourself

Did you think I’d never know
Never was up as I go

And you could store an ocean in the pools in any of the explanations that you gave
And while you still have time
You had a chance
But you decided to take all of your sorries to the grave

Did you think I’d never know
Never was up as I go
Did you hope I’d never die
Never want to work it out

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

You were runnin’ for cover
Do like any other
Fallin’ out with a lover
You didn’t know that I’d suffer
What a thing been to discover
There was time to recover
Move on with each other
Just a boy and a father
What I’d give for another
Everything that I have
Wouldn’t need this for long
Never speak of the time
But you left us alone
Mystery, while I roam
I wanna tell you ’bout the time
Wanna tell you ’bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Nonetheless, sing along

Wanna tell you ’bout the time (This time)
Wanna tell you ’bout my life (I know)
All the time that I had
Mick Jagger on the phone
Thought of it when you spoke
Wanna tell you ’bout the time
Wanna tell you ’bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Here you are, sing along
I wanna say it’s alright
You’re just a man after all
And I know your idea now
Hard to say I left my own
Think you passed on along
Wanna tell you ’bout the time
Wanna tell you ’bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Here you are, sing along
