Hindsight

By Metaphorest

A song about someone getting older and looking back.


Lyrics



Up in the attic is a faded photograph
of your wedding day
that's the way time goes these days


Out of your window is an unfamiliar scene
You remember when it was all empty and green


You remember when people said
exactly what they meant
You remember when a spade was called a spade


You remember when the universe felt young
and so did you
You remember when your love was fresh and new


Down in the basement is a box of broken dreams
Promises  pulled apart, torn at the seams


Phantoms and ransoms you picked up along the way
In a life lived right, that's the price you've got to pay


You remember when people said exactly what they meant
You remember when a spade was called a spade


You remember when the universe felt young and so did you
You remember when your love was fresh and new


You remember when people said exactly what they meant
You remember when a spade was called a spade


You remember when the things you held onto were owned, not lent
You remember when the people you loved stayed
