The Song Remembers When

Kristin Chenoweth

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 perfect sense
We were young and were in love and we were easy to convince
We were headed straight to eden it was just around the bend
And though I have forgotten all about it the song remembers when

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

Well, for all the miles between us and for all the time that's passed
You would think I haven'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 a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking around corners I have turned
Still I guess some things we bury are 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
