I’ve had my past remastered

I’ve had my past remastered
 
I’ve had my past remastered
so that when it plays
I don’t seem quite the bastard
I was in bygone days.
 
I’ve had my memories whitewashed.
They look pure white to me.
The witnesses are dying 
who see what I won’t see.
 
The stories that I never told
will never sound the same.
I’d like to hear them just one time
without the sting of shame.
