You drive down
Your old street
Familiar smiles
From those you meet

You’ve been around
Been everywhere
But objects in the rear view mirror
Are closer than they appear

Looking back is bittersweet
When the world was at your feet
Love would make your life complete
No one makes it on their own

You’ve come so far
In your comfortable car
Now objects in the rear view mirror
Seem closer than they are

And looking back is bittersweet
All the world was at your feet
Love would make your life complete

Yeah, love could make your life complete
Teach your heart to skip a beat
Lift your eyes above the street
This is where you once belonged

Come on now, it’s not so bad
Thinking back on the fun we had
We can stitch a life together
From the fibres of the past

But you cannot make a fleeting moment
Promise it will last

Been everywhere
And now you’re here
And objects in the rear view mirror
Seem to disappear
