Memory lane is a dead end
where a mind can’t turn
Stuck on a narrow road
with nothing new to learn

CHORUS
The past is going nowhere
I haven’t seen before
Rehearsing life in reverse
say the lines once more
No surprises to be found
the scene’s already set
The future’s looking better, because
I haven’t been there yet

Litter fills the alley
where time stops still
Papers tell of yesterday’s news
with sentimental overkill

Faces fall in a puddle
with half-remembered names
Everything wet and muddied
by history’s blurring rain

Salvage some pretty thing
from the glove-box of souvenirs
As we idle in reverse
down the back-road of years
