lyrics

This is the place where I used to play,
In those just remembered childhood days
Of summer sun and brown leaves in the fall
An this is house where I used to live
Where family love kept me protected
In arms that held me safe when I was small
And nothing's really changed with the passing of time
Just that post in the front yard with the "For sale" sign

So I drive away alone, turn my back on all the things that I've ever known
And if i never see this place again, why should I care?
The past is another country, and I don't live there.

This the porch where we first kissed
In a moment that left us both speechless
A long goodnight beside that old screen door
And here is the drive where I parked my car
The night we took it a little too far
Going somewhere that we'd never been before
And nothing's really changed on the surface, anyhow
Just another families memories that live here now

So I drive away alone, turn my back on all the things that I've ever known
And if I never see this place again, why should I care?
The past is another country, and I don't live there.

And I can't live on memories now, those days are gone
No looking back, just keep moving along

So I drive away alone, turn my back on all the things that I've ever known
And if i never see this place again, why should I care?
The past is another country, and I don't live there.
