|When we were livin' in squalor, wasn't it Heaven?
Back when we used to get on it, four out of seven
Now even though that was a time I hated from day one
Eventually, terrible memories turn into great ones
* So if they call you, embrace them If they haunt you, erase them
** 'Cause it might've been somethin who's to say It doesn't help to get lost in yesterday
And you might've missed somethin', don't slip 'Cause it hurts to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday You've been pickin it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might've been somethin', don't say 'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
Matty said life didn't go the way that he planned it
Said, "Oh, what I'd give to start over, boy, I demand it
So, what was I ever afraid of? Why did I worry?
And why was I ever so brainless? Head in a flurry"
If it calls you, embrace it
If it haunts you, face it
I know it's mad, I understand It's only Snakes and Ladders
The period you never had There's only one that matters
And if it calls you, embrace it
If it haunts you, erase it And face it
