History Never Repeats. Split Enz. Produced by David Tickle. History Never Repeats Lyrics. History never repeats I tell myself before I go to sleep Don't say the words you might regret I lost before, you know I can't forget. There was a girl I used to know She dealt my love a savage blow I was so young, too blind to see But anyway that's history. I say history never repeats I tell myself before I go to sleep Don't say the words you might regret I lost before, you know I can't forget. History never repeats I tell myself before I go to sleep And there's a light shining in the dark Leading me on towards a change of heart, ah. History never repeats History never repeats. Deep in the night it's all so clear I lie awake with great ideas Lurking about in no-man's land I think at last I understand.
