Like a Memory

It comes from the bones of old trees
Floats like dust on a cold breeze
Made its way, all this way
And found us today, us today

Like the smell of a memory
Can you remember the one
Never realized when it had
Gone away, it went away

A tired moment on repeat
Replayed a million times
In my mind, but never twice
The same, never quite the same

It was heard in the vibrations of old guitar strings
Swam in the trickle of forgotten springs
Made its way, all this way
And found us today, us today

The feel of my first touch of skin
And looking deep into your eyes
Never wanted to watch
Them close, hoping they’d never close

The way the light carried me home
Listening to songs on repeat
Wanting to hear your voice
Saying you love me, you love me

Deep in the recesses
Of my tortured brain
Laying dormant
Now back again

I see you like you
Were never gone
Maybe it’s true
You were never gone

Like the taste of a memory
Can you remember the one
Never realized when it had
Gone away, it went away
