Lyrics

 

Livin' in the past. Livin' in the past.

Things they change they always change. You know they never last.

Livin' in the past. Livin' in the past.

Things they change they always change. You know they never last.

 

It's a ten year anniversary and we've come a long, long way.

From the loneliness and the misery. From the darkness to the day.

We've gone from simple people. To hardened country men.

What's done is done is done my friend you can't go back again. But you're....

 (repeat chorus)

 What's the use of livin' for tomorrow if you can't live for today.

If all you do is spend your time in sorrow. And nostalgically waste away.

Well the times they are a changin'. As the ancient poet said.

If long gone memories is all there is well you might as well be dead. Instead of....

 (repeat chorus)

 Now it's a thirty year anniversary and you're still doin' the same thing.

Trying to recapture the old memories. And the good vibes that it brings.

But it's really kind of sorry. Yeah, it's really sad to see.

Now it's just one big staged event broadcast on MTV. And they're all...

 (repeat chorus)
