Blackboard Jungle – This Time Last Year lyrics

Oh this time last year
A friend of mine was still alive
Now it's twelve months later
And we've both been buried for quite some time
Oh this time last year
Who'd ever dream I'd write this song
Ain't it kinda sad how time moves you along

Some people say looking back
Can do nothing but drag you down
That when you climb the hills of life
You should never let yourself turn around
Others like to live in yesterday's dawn
And let old memories keep them warm

Yeah this time last year
Someone was up someone else was down
And if you look today
Both their lives have flipped around
Oh this time last year
So many memories were born
But today my blood drips from their thorns
Yeah today my blood drips from their thorns
Ooh yeah
Ooh yeah-eah-eah
