Looking back so much has passed
Through and through you've held steadfast
Memories that serve me all to well
A story time and time again will tell
Through all these years
Despite my efforts I'm the same
Always changing rearranging
But never learning from mistakes i've made
Just when I think I've got it right
I realise just how wrong I am
But I got hope for better days
Hope in the light of grace
And even though I know I'll fail
Your loving mercy will prevail
Through all these years
Despite my efforts I'm the same
Slow to learn and slower to turn
Back and walk the path from where I came
And now I know I know it's right
Trust has to pre-empt my own might
Through all these years
Despite my efforts I'm the same
Always changing rearranging
but never learning from mistakes i've made
So I'll turn to you
Your love will see me through
Complete I'll find the end.

    General CommentA bit of a fan-favourite. One of the best off the second EP. Plus it's really good live, and they play it all the time
