"I Am the Past" as written by John Wesley Harding and Eleanor Friedberger....
I am the past, you'll never forget me
I'd probably come back and stay, if you'd let me
I am the past and you cannot ignore me
You've got no idea what happened before me

I'm your first time, I'm the worst
I'm the best time you ever rehearsed
I'm the ghost of ex-girlfriends
But mostly I'm me, I'm the past to infinity

I am the past, so please fill your boots
With memories you can pull up by the roots
I am the past, a glint in the eye
A million hellos and one less goodbye

I'm your first time, I'm the best
I'm the worst you were ever obsessed
I'm the ghost of old girlfriends
A nursery rhyme, I'm the passport of time

I am the past, would you like to banish me?
Kiss me once more and I'll vanish, you'll see

I'm your first time, I'm the worst
I'm the best time you ever rehearsed
I'm the ghost of ex-girlfriends
But mostly I'm me, I'm the past to infinity
