The first time I listened this song, something about it caught my ear. I've listened to the album several times through now, and I still can't get enough of this song. I really like the way the poppy upbeat verses and chorus contrast the darker and more intense bridge.
Running in the sand Living on the land The salty breeze was in our eyes We stood beneath the dragonflies and danced all night We polished all the chrome On our rusty little home We slept all night in parking lots We tied our hearts in double knots, so tight So free, so right Remember when We were just cherubs in our tender skins Waiting patiently for life to begin Flowing so free Blowing in the breeze The songs we sung so long ago With whiskey and an afterglow, we shined like new But there along the way Something seemed to change As weeks turned into months we knew As life caught up we slowly grew, apart And untied our hearts The summer went away and the skies went gray We slowly ran out of things to say The river turned into drought Our time was fading out Defeated and alone, we returned back home Like a bird without a wing who had never flown Surrendered to, suspended dreams Remember when You walked away in the December wind I felt the stinging on my pale skin I knew that things would never be the same again Remember when The clouds rolled in and then the sunlight dimmed And what will be, it killed what might have been
Verse: D G Bm A G (repeat) Chorus: D G Bm G D Bridge: Em Bm Em Bm A Em Bm A G End Chorus: Bm G Bm A G Bm G Bm A G
