Money can't change the way you feel
Smoke stains on your fingertips
Made for life is no big deal
When there's something behind you that just doesn't fit

And I can't stop thinking
Always in the past
No, no, I just can't stop thinking
Always in the past
It was always in

Smoke screens up at the break of day
Boy you must had a lonely night
And did your dreams reveal god's plan?
Did heaven say you're gonna make it allright

And I can't stop thinking
Always in the past
No, no, I just can't stop thinking
Always in the past
It was always in

Walk those streets
Paved with gold
You and I we are one and the same
We've got a whole lot of soul
Dance those steps
Of the ancient plague
You could sharpen knives on the famous lives
That were never saved

I just can't stop thinking
Always in the past
No, no, I just can't stop thinking
Always in the past
It was always in

I can't stop thinking
Always in the past
No, no, I just can't stop thinking
Always in the past
It was always in
