So Much For The Past

Lyrics: Brent Mydland
Music: Brent Mydland

Recorded by Brent Mydland with the band Silver, but not included on their debut LP. Instead, it was issued as the B side of a single, with the A side being "Memory" (a non-Brent-Mydland song from the LP)

I've been seeing pictures
That've been forming in my mind
And like solid fixtures
They haven't changed in quite some time

People keep on changing
Changing every day
They keep re-arranging
Enough to turn a man's hair gray

Saw some of my old friends
The other day when I went home
They're all living their lives
Seems like everyone's grown

Sometimes when I think back
I was living in a dream
Just like in those pictures
But life flowing like a stream

Oh, so much for the past
Maybe the future will be more sound
All my friends are going somewhere
But I'm just hanging around

Everybody's changing
They have something to pursue
I keep seeing pictures
Seems like there's nothing else to do

Wasn't how I pictured
Everything would be
Guess that I've been living
In a fantasy

Oh, so much for the past
Maybe the future will be more sound
All my friends are going somewhere
But I'm just hanging around
