Wipe those tears away
Keep as still as you can
Hold your breath and dig deep
And stop those trembling hands

Make yourself pretty
Just for one last time
No one will ever know
You ever left your prime

The future has been here forever
The future's still unclear whatever

This place it left me
A long, long time ago
But it still keeps me here
It still keeps me close
When i start to break free
It calls me back again
Like the Godfather 3
I never can escape

My future has been here forever
The future's still unclear whatever

When you can't shake off your yesterdays
When you can't rewrite your histories

When you let some love break through the light
When you let someone come into your life

    General CommentGreat song.. love the trumpets... lyrics are quite self-explanatory, like a lot of Postcards From A Young Man, it's about looking at your personal past. I can imagine Nicky writing this when he was feeling old but still wanting to jump about :)

    General Comment'It's just that idea really that everything's been done. You can trace everything back, everything's been said, and y'know the idea is to find your path along that kind of secret journey and then just try and visualise and sort of become eloquent and in those things you learnt around the way... it's probably the best vocal I've ever done.'
