Lyrics:
Wasn't The Same

Play it back in rewind
'Til I hit the beginning
in the back of my mind

I paid a visit to the old familiar dreams unsated
Tried to retrieve a piece of you but the old roads were gated

oh oh it wasn't the same
oh oh it wasn't the same

And time goes by
fading the memory of what our
life was like
I thought that I could just try it
one more time
before I gave it up but
oh oh it wasn't the same

All the mementos I held onto
quickly lost their meaning
Like a mirage, my eyes were full
but my heart still was thirsting

oh oh it wasn't the same
oh oh it wasn't the same

Day to day I been slippin' away
I been slowly decaying
but I never paid it no mind
Through the atmosphere I tumble
I'm shipwrecked, I'm crumbling
I took a walk and I stopped in a cemetery
There was a momentary tear in the very fabric of what
My life was worth
It's a gift and a curse when you settle for earth
It's a gift and a curse when you settle for earth

Did I romanticize the glory days so far behind me
decades have oxidized a dream and still I tried and tried
and tried and tried
