Goodbye to Old Times

from A Scientific Search by Erik Ritland



Inspired by: playing piano, George Harrison, Alejandro Escovedo, self-doubt, existential crisis


I find
Most times
I lose

But when it matters
I will be gone

Don't cry
It's fine
Those were the days
But now they're gone

It's just a sweet dream
That has to end

Goodbye to old times
They're ours to lose

There's a purpose
It's in your heart
But it will die
If you ignore it
Watch how your dreams float out of reach

We don't have reasons
Only excuses

Goodbye to old times
They're ours to lose


from A Scientific Search, released August 16, 2020
