dYou Remember?

Do you remember back in high school

All of those nights when we would just tool

Around in my daddy’s car

Do you remember back that far?

 

And did you know how I used to feel

As I kept my grip on the steering wheel?

Tell me if you knew, tell me if you knew

How I really wanted to be holding you

 

How my body would just ache

To put my hand on your blue-jeaned leg

How hard it was not to lose my head

To hold on to the stickshift instead

 

Which would always become wet

As my frightened palm would begin to sweat

Tell me if you noticed my trembling hand

And were you ashamed, or did you understand?

 

(Chorus)

Oh, my buddy, do you remember back that far?

Those short, short nights in my daddy’s car

Wherever you’re sleeping, wherever you are

Please, remember back that far

 

You remember the nights on the edge of the heights

Taking turns sucking on a big plastic bong

Fuckin’ up the words to every song

Do you remember after so long?

 

I remember the moonlight on your face

How we wondered if we’d ever get out of this place

We’d escape in my daddy’s car

Do you remember back that far?

 

(Chorus)

 

We weren’t cool, but we were close

Back in high school, when it mattered most

Six feet under a small, dead town

With nothin’ to do but hunker down

 

Trying everything that we could find

To keep our hearts in the back of our minds

Learning everything, to each his own

In my daddy’s car, altogether alone

 

(Chorus)

 

We weren’t cool, but we were close

Back in high school, when it mattered most

Six feet under a small, dead town

With nothin’ to do but hunker down
