Looking back upon my life
And the places that I've been
Pictures, faces, girls I've loved
I try to remember when
Faded memories on the wall
Some names I have forgotten
But each one is a memory
I look back on so often

I looked into the past
And I want to make it last
I was there
I was there
I looked into the past
And I want to make it last
I was there
I was there

Looking back what I have done
There's lots more life to live
At times I feel overwhelmed
I question what I can give
But I don't let it get me down
Or 'cause me too much sorrow
There's no doubt about who I am
I always have tomorrow

I looked into the past
And I want to make it last
I was there
I was there
I looked into the past
And I want to make it last
I was there
I was there

Looking back upon my life
(Wild life)
Faded memories on my wall
(Why now?)
Looking now at who I am
(Who am I?)
I don't let it get me down
(Why somebody get me down?)

Looking back upon my life
And the places that I've been
Pictures, faces, girls I've loved
I try to remember when
But I don't let it get me down
Or 'cause me too much sorrow
There's no doubt about who I am
I always have tomorrow

I looked into the past
And I want it make it last
I was there
I was there
I looked into the past
And I want it make it last
I was there
I was there
