Lyrics
(Chorus) Living in the past
I can't hold on and I can't let go, because I'm
Living in the past.
Today belongs to the future.

Today is just a step toward tomorrow,
And tomorrow is a dream that never comes,
So today is just a stepping stone to nowhere.
Yesterday is places I have gone.

Yesterday's reality is always.
Today's reality just fades to dream,
A promise of tomorrow, ever broken,
That drives me back to old familiar scenes.

That's why I'm
Living in the past
I can't hold on and I can't let go, because I'm
Living in the past.
Today belongs to the future.

I wind my way back down the path that brought me
To the crossroads where I stand today,
And I pass the long-familiar landmarks
That kept me company along the way.

I'm sitting on that southbound commuter train to Boston
Every time I hear that whistle moan,
Staring out the window, riding though the back yards
Of people who don't know us sitting here alone.

(bridge) Here am I, traveling through space and time,
Now standing on the Green Line, headed for Riverside,
Gazing out the window of the crowded subway train,
And seeing our reflection standing in the darkened window pane.

I travel back to places that were better,
To things and times and friends that I once knew,
To see and touch and smell the things I care for,
But, most of all, to stand again with you.

That's why I'm
Living in the past
I can't hold on and I can't let go, because I'm
Living in the past.
Today belongs to the future.
