1a.
Fifteen years old at my first dance
  In the dress my mother picked
  Twenty-five years out of date
  I stand there feeling sick
1b.
Cheerleaders, bullies, mean girls, jocks
  Each one stuck inside their box
  A nerdy girl, that's all they see
  They're picking out a box for me
   
chorus My life's been built on memories
  But something's getting clearer
 

I'll never find my future in

  A Broken Rear-View Mirror
   
2a.
Trying to be cool, riding shotgun
  The engine roars and sputters
  Racing on a learner's permit
  One wheel in the gutter
2b.
A boy who thinks he is a man
  That's how games get out of hand
  My best friend underneath a sheet
  Wreckage on a tear-wet street
   
chorus My life's been built on memories
  But something's getting clearer
 

I'll never find my future in

  A Broken Rear-View Mirror
   
bridge (3b.) And when my tears turn into dust
  I'll see what's underneath the rust
  Good or bad this too shall pass
  Stars shine up from broken glass
   
chorus My life's been built on memories
  It's finally getting clearer
 

It's time that I stopped looking in

  A Broken Rear-View Mirror
   
coda

I'll never find my future in

  A Broken Rear-View Mirror

"At my last high-school reunion, a person I didn't remember thanked me for something I did that meant a lot to her. I realized how much I trusted my memories, and how faulty they might be."
