Lyrics


History


You know me, you think you own me,
But there’s still time to console me.
You may fight it, while I write it,
And you might find, I’ll change my mind.


Still today, you want to play,
With deadly toys awhile in style so you say.
And if we keep, the ways of past,
A wave of History will cover us at last.


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.


Hey Baby, try maybe,
And if it works, will you still hold me?
Can you see her? I used to love her,
But after time, she changed my mind,


So watch it now, come see how,
The world of girls and boys performs and takes its bow.
And if we open the ways of past
A wave of History will cover us at last.


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.


We run for you, we’ll see it through
The gates of depth that our time drew.
And if you steal, hearts of another,
The gates will open up in time for another.


And you cannot say, which yesterday,
I saw the open door and now the path will stay.
And if we seek the ways of past,
A wave of History will cover us at last…


And you cannot see, you’re affecting me,
You think the ways and means of love all come for free.
And you cannot know, but your feelings show,
I can’t see why you wait to tell me I don’t know.
