lyrics

The nostalgia has not gone away
It’s just not as strong as the other day
I’m travelling time in my head
I’m seeing the fire that we lit
And I can touch it
But I can’t snuff it out
But I’m touching it

And I’m protected because it’s not real anymore
So why does it feel like it’s more real than before?
Because I’m travelling time in my head
And there are colours that don’t exist yet
Where we met

And faith, it just enhances the day
The sun streams through and lights my face
And this time, when I think of you
I don’t want you
I just want you well to do
‘Cause I can see you
But right now I don’t need you
But I can see you

And I’m disconnected because it’s not here anymore
So why does it feel like we’re chained forever and then some more?
It’s because I’m travelling time in my head
And now there are shades in the silhouette
So no regrets

Hoping history will repeat itself
So, presently, I won’t disgrace myself
I’d like a chance to make it right again
But I want you to choose to hear me out, old friend
Because I owe it
But I’ve never known it
But I owe it and I wanna show it
I owe it and I wanna show it
So just let me show it

And I’m resurrected ‘cause I don’t kill myself anymore
And I’m not scared ‘cause I don’t know fear anymore
And because I’m travelling time in my head
There’s no more time to be upset
Just to reflect

I’m travelling time in my head
And the reverie burns like a cigarette
Just so we don’t forget

I’m travelling time in my head
And there are shades in our silhouette
No regrets
