lyrics

Walk down an old road,
Take in the buildings along both sides
Bring a sad, sweet memory to mind.
Chase it down, the better on your own now.
Do the same thing all around your home town.

Plan a visit to an old house.
Strongly steeped in young extremes.
Take a blindfold, fill your mind
With old times, when the living was worse and better.
Take a deep breath and step inside
And throw your eyes wide.

Will you feel better
When memories faded, resurge?
There's a risk in living like this.
Every visit back there fades a little bit
Of that golden time.

Go through that shoebox, dust it off.
In no time at all
You'll be wrapped up warm again,
Certain in the past.

Look up my number, maybe.
Wonder what I'm doing lately
Old friends live here with you.
Where the weather is always bright and you
You're always right.

Will you feel better
When memories faded, resurge?
There's a risk in living like this.
Every visit back there fades a little bit
Of that golden time.

Oh, hallowed ground!
Made that way by the passing of the years.
This day cellared underground
Maybe coming back around, a future haunting ground.
Faded memories keep us sound,
So recall it as you want.
