Yesterday arrived too quickly
Caught me right off guard
My defense moved in too slowly
Missed it by a yard

I'd just settled down
With a bottle of gin
So I moved on to whiskey
And it hit me again

Memories were raining punches
Down on my head
Knocked me into the past so quickly
They almost raised the dead

So I drank some more booze
And it helped me to sleep
Where I dreamed of my youth
And the secrets I keep

Oh, history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place and we have a good time
But the memories, she sometimes brings with her
Get out of line, they're out of line

Show me things, I don't want to see
(Wanna see, wanna see, wanna see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(Gonna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(Used to go, used to go)
A long, long time ago

When I woke, I remembered nothing
Suppose that's just as well
And although my head was aching
I could hear a bell

So I put on some clothes
And I reached my front door
When I pulled it wide open
She joined me once more

Oh, history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place and we have a good time
But the memories, she sometimes brings with her
Get out of line, they're out of line

Show me things, I don't want to see
(Wanna see, wanna see, wanna see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(Gonna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(Used to go, used to go)
A long, long time ago
A long, long time ago
