lyrics

I drove past your old street the other day
And of course I thought of you
How your house was haunted by a man
Who lived there long before you

You always were one of the ones for me
Was it wrong of me to try and keep you here?
Lonely again I will be
Just songs and ghosts for company
Trying not to cry
Trying not to cry

Remember sitting on your bedroom floor
Listening to records all afternoon?
The Raspberries, ELO, The Carpenters
Endless summers, endless tunes

We were so young when we began
Back then, you were my biggest fan
Love was a new discovery
But now it's just a memory
Time enough to cry
Time enough to cry

Don't be afraid of things that change
Cuz nothing's ever gonna stay the same
Not me, and never you
Places that we used to go aren't there
This town has lost all of its flair
Wish you were here

Nostalgia magnifies the loss of you
And paints us in rosy hues
Farewell friend; it's time for me to see
What life is without you

We were so young when we began
Meeting me wasn't what you had planned
So many things to seek and find
But keep in mind, I'll be moving on
Living in the now
Living in the now

Don't be afraid of things that change
Cuz nothing's ever gonna stay the same
Not me, and never you
Places that we used to go aren't there
Sometimes it's more than I can bear
Wish you were here

Don't be afraid of things that change
Cuz nothing's ever gonna stay the same
Not me, and never you
Places that we used to go aren't there
This town has lost all of its flair
Wish you were here
