It's Better With The Good Eye

Rating: 4.6


Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be,
Looking back at oh so far away.
Memory’s just another way to see.


A place to go on holiday for free,
Forty years ago if it’s a day.
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.


And was that other person really me,
What changed, why could I not stay?
Memory’s just another way to see


The way things were around us then when we
Thought all our dreams were surely on their way.
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be,


The sky was always blue it seemed to me,
Every day the sun shone so they say -
Memory’s just another way to see,


But now I know that life’s not lunch for free
That bitter fruit is served on many days
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be,
Memory’s just another way to see.
