A THING OF THE PAST
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Aaron Raitiere)

We were going to climb the mountains the world put in our way
Hanging on to each other and taking it day by day
Reckless ambition from two kids who couldn’t know
How the story went and which way the end would go
We were going to take the world on and show it who was boss
All we thought we needed was us

But those memories in the making won’t be happening now
We were burning bright but the fire went out too fast
We had it going on now all our going to’s are gone
And our future is a thing of the past

We were going to swim the oceans against the raging tide
Saddle up some unicorns take a magic carpet ride
Dance through fields of flowers as yellow as the sun
And we were going to do it all before each day was done
We were going to take the world on and show it who was boss
All we thought we needed was us

But those memories in the making won’t be happening now
We were burning bright but the fire went out too fast
We had it going on nowt all our going to’s are gone
And our future is a thing of the past

We put our hearts together
Thought love would stay forever
But the truth is that was too good to be true

And those memories in the making won’t be happening now
We were burning bright but the fire went out too fast
We had it going on now all our going to’s are gone
And our future is a thing of the past
Our future is a thing of the past
