A Matter of History

Get Flash to see this player.

Sometimes (alwasy?) we do things we can't escape from and they come back to haunt us much, much later. This song was inspired by a conversation about consequences. The message, in so many words, is "deal with it or it will deal with you."

Dust off your memories and think back in time
Dig through the archives and see what you find
It’ll come back to haunt you, no, it won’t go away
It all comes around – it will hurt you someday

You know you’ll never cheat it
You’re doomed to repeat it
You’ll never defeat it
You’ll see
It isn’t really such a big mystery
No, it’s all just a matter of history

You know that you’ll have to admit it someday
That you messed up somewhere … along the way
You gotta come clean, yeah, you gotta confess
Get it out in the open or you’ll die from the stress.

CHORUS, then
We all have to deal with our past at some time
It’s all just a part of the game
You might as well face it the best that you can.
Stand up… and deal with the blame.

You wonder what happened, how did it start
Somebody messed up, and you fit the part
Shoulda been more careful, thinkin’ it through
Gotta blame someone. Looks like it’s you.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
