lyrics

I've never been one for looking back to a misty golden age
And I don't believe that things get worse with every turning page
Evert time that I look around and think that I was wrong
I thank Jesus for the information I was missing all along

Don't take me back to the past, I don't live there any more
If good things never last don't keep pushing at that door
If all I ever earned was that all I have survived
It seems so unimportant now the future has arrived

They say the past is a foreign county, they do things different there
Why did you think those things you thought, and do that to your hair?
I always was so definite in the certainty of youth
At least there are no photographs, god bless the burden of proof

Don't take me back to the past, I don't live there any more
If good things never last don't keep pushing at that door
If all I ever earned was that all I have survived
It seems so unimportant now the future has arrived

That's not to say it was all bad, we were quick and we were young
There's much to recommend being free and having fun
Try not to second guess yourself, demean or undermine
But leave that foolish boy behind and be a child of your time

Don't take me back to the past, I don't live there any more
If good things never last don't keep pushing at that door
If all I ever earned was that all I have survived
It seems so unimportant now the future has arrived
