Out of sight is out of mind

Verse

People don’t drop coins in a jukebox

To play a song anymore.

They don’t let you smoke in a bar room

Or throw sawdust on the floor.

Pre chorus

Outdated relegated

Reserved for the past.

Unwanted, disregarded

Life goes by too fast.

Chorus

Out with the old, in with the new

Keep up or get left behind.

Like memories in the attic.

Out of sight is out of mind.

Verse

People don’t buy stamps the send e mail.

They don’t shop in retail stores.

They go online, pick from a menu.

The goods show up at their door.

Pre chorus

Outdated relegated

Reserved for the past.

Unwanted, disregarded

Life goes by too fast.

 

Chorus

Out with the old, in with the new

Keep up or get left behind.

Like memories in the attic.

Out of sight is out of mind.

Bridge

Newer doesn’t make it better.

Some things ought not change.

I supposed I am old fashioned

But I still ride trains.

Hi Carroll,
I liked these lines. Due to Corona you can't do much these days, therefore I thought I'd record what I hear when I read your lyrics. Sorry for the bad vocals.

All the best
Robert

This is really good. Love the melody. Noticed Suzi was tapping her foot in tune. I saw Ian was complaining he was bored. Been at home 5 days now. I suggested he pass the time working on songs as well.

I enjoyed the listen. Catchy melody. To me, the best line is "I still ride trains." 

I may or may not be an enigma
