Wannabe

Wannabe (Spice Girls 1997) 11/17

If you want my future, forget my past
It is a book, locked in its case, forgetting itself
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is

You could, smash open the gates and release this
Library of evils, could manage to overlook everything
If you want my future forget my past

The dark corners of history, the beliefs held then dropped
At the first sign of wind change
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is

We do this to ourselves, check and mate
I was once a Nazi a murderer a robber a mass of heat
If you want my future forget my past

Swirling in the ether between us
Is this idea : and then…
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is

I absorb your atrocities, and you will take on mine
Is this not what love is?
If you want my future forget my past
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is
