ALMOST FORGOTTEN

SOME DAY, SOMEHOW, ONE DAY I WANNA SAY, THAT YOU WERE ALMOST, FORGOTTEN

 

I WILL PASS THIS WAY AGAIN

I WILL WALK THESE SACRED GROUNDS

I WILL LAY DOWN A FOUNDATION 

FOR THE YOUNGER ONES TO COME

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, I KNOW 

IT WILL ALWAYS BE FORGOTTEN

 

I’M HEADING DOWN THIS ROAD

TRACING EVERY STEP I TOOK

EVERY CROSSROAD HOLDS A MILESTONE

OF A MEMORY UNTOLD

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, I KNOW

IT WILL ALWAYS BE FORGOTTEN

 

BUT I SAY, TAKE BACK, TAKE BACK FROM THE PAST 

TAKE BACK THE THINGS 

THAT I THOUGHT WERE GONNA TO LAST

FOR A LIFE TIME

 

TAKE BACK, TAKE BACK FROM THE PAST 

TAKE BACK THE THINGS 

THAT I THOUGHT WERE GONNA TO LAST

FOR A LIFE TIME, OR EVEN MORE

 

SO I ASKED ABOUT FORGIVENESS

AND THE TRUTH THAT I WAS TOLD

AND THE MEANING OF SURVIVAL

BUT PERHAPS I AM WAY TOO OLD

IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER NOW BECAUSE

IT WILL ALWAYS BE FORGOTTEN

 

WE WENT SAILING TO THE ISLAND

WE WENT FISHING UP THE STREAM

WE WENT PLOWING THROUGH THE FIELDS

SHOOTING DOWN THE RIVER TO THE LAKE

NOW MEMORIES OF INNOCENCE GROWING OLDER DAY BY DAY

WILL BE FORGOTTEN

 

AND I SAY, TAKE BACK, TAKE BACK FROM THE PAST 

TAKE BACK THE THINGS 

THAT I THOUGHT WERE GONNA TO LAST

FOR A LIFE TIME

 

TAKE BACK, TAKE BACK FROM THE PAST 

TAKE BACK THE THINGS 

THAT I THOUGHT WERE GONNA TO LAST

FOR A LIFE TIME, OR EVEN MORE

 

YOU WANNA TOUCH THE MOUNTAINS

YOU WANNA ROAM ACROSS THE LAND

YOU WANNA FIGHT FOR THE BEGINNERS

AND LEARN THING YOU DIDN’T UNDERSTAND

FROM SOMEONE WHO IS OLDER AND A MUCH WISER MAN

WILL BE FORGOTTEN
