Dancing with the Past

Childhood memories of fairy tales
Dragons, kings and queens and Holy Grails
Why did I believe life would always be a game
And the playground would entertain
I fought with troops and crossed icy lakes
I was Robin Hood and Hulk, I raised the stakes
A castle in the sand, built by children’s hand
And the kites would never land
 

Chorus
Dancing with the past
Just can’t last
Images return, feelings flash by
Dancing with the past
The die’s cast
There’s no way back, don’t ask me why

Letters carved in the trunk, autumn breeze
It’s 1963, a life of ease
I fell in love with you, you were my dream come true
But I was shy so you had no clue
 

Chorus
Dancing with the past
Just can’t last
Images return, feelings flash by
Dancing with the past
The die’s cast
There’s no way back, don’t ask me why

But the song’s different now
We all had to bow
But this song’s out of tune
We’ve been deceived
These lies we’ve believed
But the taste of the truth
Is still there to soothe
