I was standing at the counter
I was waiting for the change
When I heard that old familiar music start

It was like a lighted match
Had been tossed into my soul
It was like a dam had broken in my heart

After taking every detour
Getting lost and losing track
So that even if I wanted I could not find my way back
After driving out the memory of the way things might have been
After I'd forgotten all about us
The song remembers when

We were rolling through the Rockies
We were up above the clouds
When a station out of Jackson played that song

And it seemed to fit the moment
And the moment seemed to freeze
When we turned the music up and sang along

And there was a God in Heaven
And the world made prefect sense
We were young and were in love
And we were easy to convince

We here headed straight to Eden
It was just around the bend
And though I had forgotten all about it
The song remembers when

I guess something must have happened
And we much have said "goodbye"
And my heart must have been broken
Thought I can't recall just why
The song remembers when

But for all the miles between us
And for all the time that's passed
You would think I hadn't gotten very far
And I hope my hasty heart
Will forgive me just this once
If I stop to wonder how on Earth you are

And that's just a lot of water underneath the bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking around corners I have turned
Still I guess some things we bury
They're just bound to rise again
For even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when

Yeah, and even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when
