Split Enz — History Never Repeats lyrics

(N Finn) - Waiata

History never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
Don't say the words you might regret
I've lost before you know I can't forget

There was a girl I used to know
She dealt my love a savage blow
I was so young, too blind to see
But anyway that's History

I say [chorus]

You say I always played the fool
Well I can't go on, if that's the rule
Better to jump than hesitate
I need a change and I can't wait

History never repeats
I tell myself before I go to sleep
And there's a light shining in the dark
Leading me on towards a change of heart

History never repeats, history never repeats

Deep in the night it's all so clear
I lie awake with great ideas
Lurking about in no-man's land
I think at last I understand

Never repeats!...
Hey.... Hey....
Never repeats!

And I say, that's all
Remember til the next time

[all?:] thank you!

won't you stay, stay a while with my own one
one more day, one more day with my own ones
this old world, is so cold, don't care nothing for your soul
you share with your own ones...

Haul away, haul away, heave away, haul away, haul away, heave away
