lyrics

A moment I can still remember long ago with a record player. You told me you’d have been so much happier if you’d heard that certain song when you were younger. Its sweetness could have pulled you through. It could have softened all of your changes, and given your blues a brighter hue.

When the music’s got you swaying, I know there’s no point in playing any cut that doesn’t get you saying, “If only I’d heard that song when I was younger. Its sweetness could have pulled me through. It could have softened all of my changes, and given my blues a brighter hue.

And if we’d known each other at the awkward age of names in hearts up on walls of tigers in a case, this would have been our song, the one track to bring back to how it all began, how we found each other and burdens got light, a melody, a lyric a beat that made our blues our bright. And we’re still blue, and we’re still bright.
