Looking at a photographic memory,

I’m looking at tomorrow and what I can’t pretend to be.

So much has happened in the years gone by,

I’ll think about it someday, on that I can rely.



But I can’t depend on this to bail me out,

Because I’ll be living in the past, making the same mistakes.

I’m losing, I can’t win,

The past has taken everything away from me.



Blocking out the bad things from your memory,

I’m looking at the future, whatever that should be.

And I’m drowning sorrow in a sorry state,

I look up at it someday, but you can’t compensate.



But you can’t depend on this to bail you out,

Because you’ll be living in the past, making the same mistakes.

You’re losing, you can’t win,

The past has taken everything away from you!



Away from you.



Looking at a photographic memory,

I’m looking at tomorrow and what I can’t pretend to be,

So much has happened in the years gone by,

I’ll think about it someday, on that I can rely.



Chorus



Away from me...
