"History Repeats" as written by and Cain/murray/tapper....
I got this whole thing figured out
I guess I'd better write it down, now
Cause presently my memory?s not terribly sound
Everything is twice around
Now

It shouldn't be this hard
I guess I'm not as smart
As I'd like to think I am
And even though you won't
Admit it now
I know
You know
I know
You know

I guess it isn't any use
This keeps on coming round in twos
If history repeats itself then what can I do?
Nothing I can say is news to you

It shouldn't be this hard
I guess I'm not as smart
As I'd like to think I am
And even though you won?t
Admit it now
I know
You know
I know
You know

Let's get this calendar straight
I shouldn't try to make sense
Of anything that goes on
But it goes on
Again and again and again

It shouldn't be this hard
I guess I'm not as smart
As I'd like to think I am
And even though you won't
Admit it now
I know
You know
I know
You know

    General Commenti quite like this song but dont have any idea what its about really. i think it could be about a guy whos had an affair and realises that his partner (that hes cheated on) knows.

    anyone else any ideas?

    General Commenti just heard this song for the first time today, and right away it struck me as someone being scared of what has happened before happening again.

    just as an example, say you let yourself love someone very deeply, and they died or you lost them somehow in a way which was out of your control... maybe you're scared to get involved with someone else because history repeats. everything happens again, because we need the repetition to learn from it.

    i dunno, it just seems it was reaching out to love but being afraid and not wanting to admit it.

    General CommentThis Song Is Dedicated to Luke Smith.

    This song is about a child genius, who has grown up to not reach his full potential. They are then criticising their own power, and the close ones around them, who have realised this long before, are now trying to console them.

    And History repeats aims towards people like Mozart who have drove themselves into insanity over their own potential.
