From the recording No Need for Nostalgia

Lyrics

Another quiet Sunday and I’m cleaning house 
I sift through boxed up memories sorting things out         
Funny how a matchbook can tell a story all its own 
Of a couple in a restaurant then of a boy and a girl alone
 
And I go back in time, I go back in time  
Then I focus my mind on today  
 
There’s no need for nostalgia  
When a no good thing is gone 
There’s no need for nostalgia 
When you’re trying to move on
Baby I’m trying to move on 
 
 I flip through faded photographs to find a cast of characters  
At dinner parties and holidays while I’m the absent narrator
Then suddenly he appears on a hillside in the sun 
He’s squinting and he’s waving with no hint of what’s to come 
 
And I go back in time, I go back in time 
Then I focus my mind on today 
 
There’s no need for nostalgia  
When a no good thing is gone 
There’s no need for nostalgia 
When you’re trying to move on 
Baby I’m trying to move on 
 
I lay everything out 
I line everything up 
I’ve finally figured out   
The sum of all parts was just never enough 
 
So there’s no need for nostalgia  
When a no good thing is gone 
No there’s no need for nostalgia 
Cause I’m fine, and I’m moving on   
Baby I’m trying to move on
