"It's All Been Done Before" as written by and Alfie Zappacosta....
He was the son of a loving business man,
Young days filled with affluent affection.
Late nights all alone, walking along those suburban roads,
Searching for some cosmic connection.

And as he walked those tree-lined roads,
He would swear himself a sacred oath
To always reach up endless toward the sky.
Walking through the midnight dew
He would curse the lack of something new
And he'd stare up at the sky and wonder why'

Why it's all been done before
And so it will again.
'Nothing new left for me to do,' he said.
And it's all been done before
It''s all been tried and true and said,
There must be something somewhere out there someone left.

She was the daughter of a military man,
Each year marked by a different direction.
Seasons spent in the solitude of some transitory plan
Running from any constant connection.

And just as she might settle in
The orders came to leave again
And she'd stare down at the ground and refuse to cry.
Bags packed and off to go
She would swear herself a silent oath
To someday stay in one place just for a while'

Because it's all been done before
And so it will again.
'Nothing new is ever new,' she said.
And it's all been done before,
It's all been tried and true and said,
And it makes no bit of difference in the end.

They met on a moonlit night when the evergreens were waving
Ever so slightly in that misty western wind.
He walked along his usual path
And she sat upon her brand-new, old fence
And through the haze of the streetlight their eyes met.
Their eyes met'
Their eyes met'
And then they started up a conversation,
Just a simple little conversation
And that was it.

And though it seemed like endless nights and days
It did not take long for him to say,
'You''re the one for me, I'll buy you a diamond ring.
And together we will see the world,
Walk every inch upon this earth,
We will climb the highest mountains,
Sail the shining seas,
Do everything.'

And she said,
'No, it's all been done before.
Worry not your head.
Me and you is something new,' she said.
And it's all been done before,
It's all been tried and true and said,
'I want you, not something new,' is what she said.

And he lifted up his head,
Looked her in the eye,
And said, 'I think I understand
For the first time in my life.
That it's all been done before.
And it's all been done before.
Ain't it beautiful
It's all been done before.'
