Do you remember when
Life was a spiral-bound, we were the pen?
Before wishin' we woulda used lead
I thought of you, drove by the spot on the street
On the way to the school bus where we used to meet
And I lost my breath, just like when we were late and we were runnin'

I wanna go back to the post office
Sort through the thrown away mail
Back when we'd climb up on the roof of
The old town jail
Back when we smiled, we were beamin'
And when we cried, we wailed

I wanna be the bird on the wire
So many things I forgot to admire
That to God was worth savin'
Time doesn't whistle or rattle the tracks
And you don't hear it coming or see when it passes
And the ones it takes
Won't be window-seat wavin'

I wanna sit by you on the bench of your truck
Drive out the old 58
Back when we'd listen to Hank Williams
And stare at the stars too late
Back when we smiled, we were dreamin'
And when we cried, we wailed

I wanna meet you at the school after dark
Let you push me on the swing
Back when I thought you'd be the one to
Save up and buy me a ring
Yea back when we smiled, we were feelin'
Yeah, back when we smiled, we were beamin'
And when we cried, we wailed
