lyrics

I stood in the yard of the house that was once my home
Shocked and surprised at the things that had changed since I'd gone
windows were smashed and the grass was too long
Doors left ajar, everything was all wrong
I looked for some familiar thing but there was none

These reflections,
Unhealthy obsessions with the past.
Unanswered questions
Time moves on so fast

I don't know 
but something I was once told
The more things change the more things stay the same
Now I walk with your ghost
Hand in hand through the smoke
The past is past, you can't go home again.

I went through a door
And I walked up the stairs
Saddened by Xmas decorations
Still up from last year
I explored that place
Holding back a tear

Silence the sound
And heartbreaking the sight
I sat down in my old room and started to write

Now I've tried recently to get to the stage where I might
Have the courage to say something real in the things that I write
So here goes, I know I have to say so long
The silver lining of this sad situation may be this song.

Now I know it's true, no matter what I do
The more things change, the more things change
So no more walking with ghosts
Smile as the smoke starts to clear
Leave the past to the past,
