A Long Way Past the Past by Fleet Foxes


[Verse 1]
More than I had in mind
More than I wish I knew
And now it’s near on me
Some rush of red fear
And my worst old times look fine from here
[Verse 2]
I know you walked this route
And you might help me out
You said what’s done is done
I can’t turn the hand ’round
But still it looks a long way down
[Chorus]
Oh man, was it that much better then?
We were left alone, we were proud of our pain
And so I want to walk out in the night
See the wide young river flood rain
[Verse 3]
We’re not on one straight line
I made my own way through
And when the track goes cold
I’ll know that it’s true
That rebirth won’t work like it used to
[Chorus]
Oh man, was it that much better then?
We were left alone, we were proud of our pain
And so I want to walk out in the night
See the wide young river flood rain
[Interlude]
And I can’t let go
Of a lot I’ve left
I’m holding nothing
But what I kept
And it all got dimmer
Each passing step
And I need you with me
And you read the writ
Are you now insisting
Is it not worth it?
But I’ve got no option
I inherited this and I’m overcome
[Outro]
That’s that, we’re a long way from the past
I’ll be better off in a year or in two
