        What's said is said, what's done is done
        you can't relive the past
        The water's blown and so's the bridge
        you can't relive the past
        Memory runs right by your eyes
        so real and so fast
        the dam is burst the acid's spilt
        you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        the dam is burst the acid's spilt
        you can't relive the past

        I sat beauty on my knees
        you can't relive the past
        I ran my guns for Robert E. Lee
        you can't relive the past
        One lesson learned from poetry
        you can't hide behind a mask
        no mask could hide your liberty
        you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        no mask could hide your liberty
        you can't relive the past

        Your life turns grey, the kids leave school
        it's so subtle, it's so cruel
        your knee has gotten rusty
        the wild west got taped fast
        You sit with your remote control
        you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        you sit with you remote control
        you can't relive the past

        Amuse yourself with anything
        you can't relive the past
        mistakes are what they'll always be
        you can't relive the past
        The many things you thought you'd save
        were like stocks in a crash
        your future's now just gettin' up
        you can't relive the past, no

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        your future's now just gettin' up
        you can't relive the past

        Did you really think this world would change
        you can't relive the past
        reality's not what headlines say
        you can't relive the past
        Then suddenly it's all over
        before the sail reached the top most mast
        you're driftin' like a wooden doll
        you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        oh, you're driftin' like a wooden doll
        you can't relive the past

        I walked out to Dexter Street
        at the crossroads I heard a saxophone
        so many loves are dead and gone
        so many lives have crashed
        I'll never know what to make of it
        but you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        I'll never know what to make of it
        but you can't relive the past

        I wake up now that's all I know
        you can't relive the past
        the future's constant tyranny
        you can't relive the past
        Tomorrow I might drew a map
        but most plans never last
        still it's fun thought you know
        you can't relive the past, no

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        still it's fun thought you know
        you can't relive the past

        You can't relive the past
        you can't relive the past
        still it's fun thought you know
        you can't relive the past
