I'm looking back
To fantasy mixed
With what is real
To how we felt
By how we feel

I'm looking back!
To the year we questioned life
But made right wrong and wrong made right

I'm looking back!
Even though I want to stay
And having a much better day

You see
I'm trying to learn from history
Made by you and me
You ask why?
For what it's worth I'm better
At hellos than good-byes

I'm looking back!
Don't mind me I'm trying to be
More than what I feel and see!

I'm looking back
At a time that makes it clear
There is more than what we share

You see
Compromising justice for liberty
Doesn't make us free
You ask why?
Life is what we make it for each other
To the day we die

I'm looking back
In the here and now
To find good reason
To know how
