Fin'lly got over that song of ours; stopped chasin' little red sports cars,
To check the license plates an' quit drivin' by your place.
Back makin' the rounds at our old haunts... Honky Tonks, restaurants.
An' seein' some of our old friends... it feels good to dance again.
An' I can fin'lly smell your perfume an' not look around the room for you.
An' I can walk right by your picture in a frame an' not feel a thing.

But when I hear your name,
I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky.
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes.
An' nothin's changed, an' we're still same.
An' I get lost in the innocence of a first kiss,
An' I'm hangin' on to every word rollin' off of your lips...
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.

Got someone special in my life... everyone thinks she'd make a great wife.
Dad says he thinks she's the one... reminds him of Mom when she was young,
But it's way too soon to be talkin 'bout rings; don't wanna rush into anything.
She's getting over someone too, kinda like me an' you.
An' she talks about him every once in a while, an' I just nod my head an' smile,
'Cause I know exactly what she's goin' through... yeah, I've been there too.

An' when the conversation turns to you,
I get caught in a "you were the only one for me",
Kinda thought, an' your face is all that I see.
I know I can't go back but I still go back.
An' there we are, parked down by the riverside,
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time,
An' that's all it takes, an' I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.

Stop thinkin' 'bout the words I left unsaid.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Stop tryin' the change the things I can't change.
(Every time I hear your name.)
In my heart I know you're gone, but in my head,

I feel rain fallin' right out of the blue sky.
An' it's the fifth of May, an' I'm right there starin' in your eyes.
That's all it takes, an' I'm in that place.
An' there we are, parked down by the riverside,
An' I'm in your arms about to make love for the first time.
An' I can't explain, but I'm in that place,
Every time I hear your name.
Every time I hear your name.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
(Every time I hear your name.)
Ah ah.
Every time I hear your name.

    This song to me is me and my ex boyfriends song. I drove a little red mustang he said he always looked at everyone to see if they were me, we were forced to break up by his parents but we did manage to sneek off to prom as one last date on may 5th, 2006 he lives abut 3 towns away from me so we had to sneak out (we did end up getting caught but not until prom was over! ) we were in 11th and 10th grade and they played this song, it was raining and our prom was in a barn with a leaking roof which everyone was upset about, but for us we were having the time of our lives it was actually raining on the dance floor. They couldnt have played a better song, so eveytime after this night that i heard it i took me back to that prom, awhile after that i thought of him alot as we drifted apart it got easyier to deal with losing him but it is true i did talk about him everonce in awhile and my new boyfriend at the time understood im not currently with either one of them but this is a great song.

    I've yet to experience anything like this, but I think it's about going through a breakup with an awesome boy/girlfriend.
