We can remember swimming in December,
Heading for the city lights, in 1975
We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon, drips from your eyes

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now
We can try

We lived an adventure
Love in the Summer
Followed the sun till night
Reminiscing other times of life
For each every other
The feeling was stronger
The shock hit eleven
Got lost in your eyes

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing now
(repeat)

Can you remember and humanize,
It was still where we’d energized,
Lie in the sand and visualize like its 75 again

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now
We can try

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing now
(repeat)

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
Know everything about us
(repeat)

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing now
(repeat)

    Two people that are in love. Sharing something in life that no one can replace. Knowing each others desires, thoughts, memories. The pain it will cause one if they other left. The love that can never be replaced or removed. Loving someone no matter where life takes them. A true chemistry that can never be explained. 2530

    Its about two lovers fearing that their love is going to evaporate,so their trying to hold on to memories and none of them want to let go so they try to make it work by reminiscing on past times.

    Its about love. About 2 people who know each other so well and how much it'll hurt if they leave one another. They have something special, a chemistry that no one else has. Everything they have done together is a special memory.
