Before It's Gone

Childhood has long since passed us by
We'll keep the memories, but never say goodbye
So simple, the summer days we had
The hardships we faced were never all that bad

CHORUS:
Our nostalgia: it's why we all are here
Future causes don't matter to us I fear
We'll never live the future we all want
When we're trying to find the past we haunt
Before it's gone
Before it's gone for good...

Not forgotten are the days of yore
Our youth has left for something more
And now it's gone, torn and all too black
I don't want this, I want to turn back

CHORUS:
Our nostalgia: it's why we all are here
Future causes don't matter to us I fear
We'll never live the future we all want
When we're trying to find the past we haunt

And you won't let
Yourself have a good time
'Cause now you see that
The words you speak won't rhyme

It's not enough to say
It's not at all okay
That's why we burn
The churches of our past
(REPEAT)

CHORUS
