Here's to the twilight
Here's to the memories
These are my souvenirs
My mental pictures of everything

Here's to the late nights
Here's to the fire light
These are my souvenirs
My souvenirs

I close my eyes and go back in time
I can see you smiling, you're so alive
We were so young, we had no fear
We were so young, we had no idea that life was just happening
Life was just happening

Here's to your bright eyes
Shining like fireflies
These are my souvenirs
The memory of a lifetime

We were wide eyed with everything
Everything around us
We were enlightened by everything
Everything

So I close my eyes and go back in time
I can see you smiling, you're so alive
I close my eyes and go back in time
You were just a child then, and so was I

We were so young, we had no fear
We were so young, we had no idea
That nothing lasts forever
That nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts
You and me together
Were always now or never

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

I close my eyes and go back in time
I can see you smiling, you're so alive
I close my eyes and go back in time
You were wide eyed, you were wide eyed

We were so young, we had no fear
We were so young, we had just begun
A song we knew but had never sung
It burned like fire inside our lungs

And life was just happening(nothing lasts, nothing lasts forever)
And life was just happening(nothing lasts, nothing lasts forever)
I wouldn't trade it for anything
My souvenirs
