From the recording "Life's Rear View Mirror"
Life’s Rear View Mirror is the title song of the album that asks the question, what do you see in your life’s rear view mirror and how does it influence your decisions.
"Life’s Rear View Mirror"
( Lyrics: M. Novak, C. Webster - Music: Mark Novak)
What do you see in life’s rear view mirror
Do we use our memories to see life clearer
Memories change with time so is it real
The recall of the memory is brief and surreal
Do you look in the mirror when you make a decision
Will your past and the present meet in collision
Do you give your past way too much of a voice
Preventing the present from making the choice.
Life’s rear view mirror memories closer than they appear
Life’s rear view mirror recall is never clear
Life’s rear view mirror believe the reflection
Life’s rear view mirror can give you direction
As time goes on the mirror gets cloudy
Memories are yours but become disembodied
A shared memory is not seen the same way
Witnessed by all but a different replay
The mirror holds wisdom for one and all
Select carefully from a cloudy recall
Life’s rear view mirror is there for you
Use it as a filter for the things you pursue
