Nostalgia sad or happy - Things or Walking Back

Postby Adam » Fri Sep 30, 2005 10:07 am

Looking back at some songs about looking back, I found these two lyrics that I do like.

1. A sad looking-back song ;

Things, by Bobby Darrin.

Every night I sit here by my window
Staring at the lonely avenue
Watching lovers holding hands and laughing
Thinking bout the things we used to do

Thinking bout things like a walk in the park
Things like a kiss in the dark
Things like a sailboat ride
Oh what about the night we cried
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinking bout the things we used to do

Memories are all I have to cling to
And heartaches are the friends I'm talking to
When I'm not thinking of just how much I love you
I'm thinking bout the things we used to do

Thinking bout things like a walk in the park...

I still can hear the jukebox softly playing
And the face I see each day belongs to you
Though there's not a single sound and there's nobody else around
Well there's just me thinking bout the things we used to do

Thinking bout things like a walk in the park...

And the heartaches are the friends I'm talking to
You got me thinking bout the things we used to do
Thinking bout the things we used to do



2. A happy looking-back song ;

Walking Back to Happiness, by Helen Shapiro.

Funny, but it's true
What loneliness can do
Since I've been away
I have loved you more each day

Walking back to happiness, woopah oh yeah yeah
Said goodbye to loneliness, woopah oh yeah yeah
I never knew I'd miss you
Now I know what I must do
Walking back to happiness
I shared with you

Making up for things we said, woopah oh yeah yeah
And mistakes to which they led, woopah oh yeah yeah
I shouldn't have gone away
So I'm coming back today
Walking back to happiness I threw away

Walking back to happiness with you
Said farewell to loneliness I knew
Laid aside foolish pride
Learnt the truth from tears I cried

Spread the news I'm on my way, woopah oh yeah yeah
All my blues have blown away, woopah oh yeah yeah
I'm bringing you love so true
Cuz that's what I owe to you
Walking back to happiness I shared with you

Walking back to happiness with you
Said farewell to loneliness I knew
Laid aside foolish pride
Learnt the truth from tears I cried

Spread the news I'm on my way, woopah oh yeah yeah
All my blues have blown away, woopah oh yeah yeah
I'm bringing you love so true
Cuz that's what I owe to you
Walking back to happiness I shared with you

Walking back to happiness again
Walking back to happiness again

Listen -
