Broken glass shattered my old past
Keeps me here in the present
And these words I say, may you go …
Maybe they just keep you guessing

And broken past..
I cannot change what I have become
And here I am showing myself to you
And then you’ll see the broken past in me

Seize the day, what is there to…
To fight all my battles
And keep the faith and keep us strong
The past …

And broken past..
I cannot change what I have become
And here I am showing myself to you
And then you’ll see the broken past in me

Whoo oooo

And broken past..
I cannot change what I have become
And here I am showing myself to you
And then you’ll see the broken past in me
The broken past in me

The broken past in me
The broken past in me
I’m beyond the past and now I’m free

History

Greyson debuted “Past” at the 2010 BlogHer Convention at the Hilton Hotel in New York City on August 6, 2010. This was one of Greyson’s first real performances after getting signed to a record deal. Prior to playing the song, he explained to the crowd that he had been inspired by a commercial for a child abuse charity that he had seen while flipping through TV channels. He said that his sister had helped him write the lyrics and that the song was about “a boy, who was abused as a child and he breaks free saying that his past can’t affect him and he is going to be a new person in the future.”

There is no known studio version of “Past”.
