I remember you
Do you remember me?
Am I a sweet nothing,
The background music
In your small town dreams?
Can you feel the shadows and images?
Can you hear the footsteps
Of reckless youth?
Was a midnight walk in the park
Enough to form a bond?
Did you love me the way that I loved you?
And when I sleep
I am dreaming of those Night Swings
I am grasping for those moments of simplicity
All it took to get high was the movement of my feet
And the feeling of you by my side
Laughing like lunatics
In this moment of pure escape
What would you say?
If I whispered
That I miss
Moments that we never had
How would you respond if you knew
It was you
That I looked for when things turned bad
And the song in my ears
Was your voice
Arguing with me
In a verbal war never to be won
Because I am not the kind to give up
And I am not the only one
Maybe in another lifetime
The wanderlust will not possess me
And I will stay in the place where I find you
And we will remain upon the Night Swings
So I write these words
A letter to my past
For every friend who loved me then
For every night that could never last
To each and everyone
I owe a debt of gratitude
For these moments
Of innocent freedom
That defy the concept of value
Just know, that when you think of
These beautiful and fleeting things
If you think of me
You can find me on the Night Swings
