Lyrics

Don't Place Me in the Past © Paul J Rogers 2019

The cynic man inside of me
Said 'Why did this begin'
And if I have to lose it all
Was nothing like I planned
You cannot watch a movie twice
Life's linear one way
You cannot deviate fixed path
My fault lines brought you shame

And the road will fall amongst
The everyday we planned
So cut and dry you are
You moved on in one day

I said you moved

But don't you place me
Don't you place me
Don't you place me in

The past with your other boys
On the shelf of discarded toys
With no reason for embellishment
Well we diminish what the journey meant

Then you banned me from the dojo
And I can't go back again
And I've never seen a dojo
Come un-rattled by one man
You sunk my pride in borrowed loans
My voice without consent
You turned the dial of freedom up
Some months before I left

And the road will fall amongst
The everyday we planned
So cut and dry you are
I said you moved on in one day

So glad you moved

Don't you place me
Don't you place me
Don't you place me in

The past with your other boys
On the shelf of discarded toys
With no reason for embellishment
Well we diminish what this journey meant
Well we diminish what this journey meant

Thank God that my friends were there
Thank God that my friends were there
Thank God that my friends were there
Thank God that my friends were there

So glad you moved

Don't you place me
Don't you place me
Don't you place me in

The past with your other boys
On the shelf of discarded toys
With no reason for embellishment
Well we diminish what this journey meant
