TEN YEARS AGO

Tenyearsago

(Zanetti R. – Toni S.)

I’M BRUSHIN’ UP MY MEMORIES
MY BRAIN IS LIKE A CAMERA
IT’S SHOWIN’ ME SOME PICTURES OF MY LIFE

AMONG THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS OF MIND
AN UNFORGETTABLE IMAGE
CAN MAKE ME RECOGNIZE YOUR FACE
A SWALLOW

TO STRIKE THE BALANCE OF MY LIFE
IS SIMPLY USELESS NOW FOR ME
MY WATCH IS ALWAYS SLOW YOU KNOW I’M WEAK

YOU WANTED ME TO BE SO STRONG
I COULDN’T TAKE A CHANCE ON YOU
AND NOW I KNOW THAT I WAS WRONG
A REAL FOOL

IF I COULD BUY THE YEARS I SPENT
I’D PUT THEM IN A MONEY-BOX
SO I COULD LIVE THAT TIME AGAIN WITH YOU

I WASN’T THERE TO SQUEEZE YOUR HAND
WHEN YOU NEEDED ME AND NOW
IT’S LATE TO REALIZE THE PRICE
I’VE LOST

TEN YEARS AGO ALL MY LIFE WAS JUST A VIDEOGAME
TEN YEARS AGO REMEMBER
TEN YEARS AGO I WAS SURE THAT I COULD BUY THE WORLD
TEN YEARS AGO

HOW STRANGE IS SOMETIMES TO RECALL
YOUR MIND CAN FLY BUT YOU CAN FOLLOW
‘CAUSE YOUR BODY IS NOT SO FREE AND I
I’D LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU’RE IN LOVE
IF YOU JUST THINK OF ME SOMETIMES
BUT TO MY QUESTIONS NO REPLY
IT’S TOO LATE

TEN YEARS AGO ALL MY LIFE WAS JUST A VIDEOGAME
TEN YEARS AGO REMEMBER
TEN YEARS AGO I WAS SURE THAT I COULD BUY THE WORLD
TEN YEARS AGO
