Million Years Ago

After Million Years Ago by Adele

 

I only wanted to have fun

Learning to fly, learning to run

I let my heart decide the way

When I was young

Deep down I must have always known

That this would be inevitable

The piper would call, I’d have to pay

And bare my soul

 

I know I’m not the only one

Who regrets the things they’ve done

Sometimes I feel it’s only me

Who can’t stand the reflection that they see

I wish I could live a little more

A few more rounds before the door

I feel like my life is flashing by

And all I can do is watch and cry

I miss my lovers, I miss my friends

I miss my mother, I miss it when

Life was a party to be thrown

But that was a million years ago

 

When I walk around the empty streets

I remember what I used to see

But I no longer have those eyes

I’m afraid it was all me

I try to think of things to say

Like a joke or pleasantry

But the people then and now

Are fading away

 

I know I’m not the only one

Who regrets the things they’ve done

Sometimes I feel it’s only me

Who can’t stand the reflection that they see

I wish I could live a little more

A few more rounds before the door

I feel like my life is flashing by

And all I can do is watch and cry

I miss my lovers, I miss my friends

I miss my mother until the end

Life was a movie to be shown

But that was a million years ago

A million years ago
