Rewind

(david m. bailey)
Look at the time we spend climbing ladders made of paper
look at the rules we bend trying to reach a higher rung
look at the fires we tend to when nobody is watching
look at the songs we have sung

Look at the songs that tell the story of your life as it unfolded
look at the songs that carry you into oceans never sailed
look at the songs that make you treasure a solitary moment
look at the songs that kept you going when you thought you had failed

look at the years we waste thinking joy can't be discovered
look at the furious haste that makes us blind when we run
look at the sorrow we taste when we disregard our dreams
look at the songs we have sung

look at the songs that made you dance, the songs that made u weep
look at the songs that made you wish you could leave it all behind
look at the songs that you've forgotten, you thot would last forever,
look at the songs you could never seem to find
Like the love we truly cherish,
like moments that are precious
look at the songs we so carefully rewind

Look at the number of times we made mountains out of molehills
look at the number of rhymes we tried to make to ease the pain
look at the bittersweet crimes of the heart we committed
look at the songs we've sung again and again
just don't tell me we have sung our songs in vain...
We’ll sing them again…
