lyrics

I isolated myself in a world of space and fantasy,
In ancient worlds long gone under the sea,
remember me,
I used to hear in my dreams,
Like an imprint in my genes,
these childhood memories.

How can you forget the past,
like you have...
You walked away

This is an elegy,
A meditation on memories,
And when I wake myself up,
And find my way back home,
I'll pretend I didn't come here,
I'll pretend I didn't shed a tear,
I'll pretend that I'm OK,
You wouldn't care anyway,
Cause ya hardly ever call to say,
Hello how are you doing today,
Hello, oh and I forgot to say,
Take care tonight when you're going your way.

How can you forget the past,
like you have...
You walked away

Nothing shocks me any more,
Like a dream I've seen many times before,
I try to hold steadfast, be strong and sure,
Cause you say you don't know what you saw,
But you lie so much I've learned to ignore you,
But I never even wanted to,
I guess I lost hope in that idea,
Of respecting you,
You never remember the times that you let me down,
And hell, I still remember the sound late at night like it was all around me.

See my head was in the clouds,
I didn't even know why I was alone,
I didn't even know why when I put my ears to the ground, couldn't hear the earth talking to me, or why I couldn't fly when I wanted to,
Cause dreams and reality melt together slowly when you're only the age of three.

I isolated myself in a world of space and fantasy,
In ancient worlds long gone under the sea,
remember me,
I used to hear in my dreams,
Like an imprint in my genes,
these childhood memories.

How can you forget the past,
like you have...
You walked away
