How Good are the Oldies?

Listening to music from my past
Parts of every song there you are
Clouding every thought brought forward
Oldies from years together still scar

I’m punished believing in magic
Nostalgia overcomes us all
So I’m bent down in reverie’s revenge
Overcome now, fighting to stand tall

If only we could celebrate again
Returning for us would help love rekindle
Tapping toes to the beat of used to be
Looking up at our mountain of life dwindled

Now listening to new memories
New loves have broken through once more
Because being gone as long as you were
Old songs shared are again slamming doors
