I can see it again
That place
On the highway

I've been here before

It's bittersweet, this remembering
Like remembering the smell
Of a summer
Long forgotten

I've been here before

But this ain't gonna stay
‘Cause it's past, gone, good-bye
And I can't revive it

Because it's that sweet tune
that you just can't seem to remember
it's that taste of popsicles
in a hot summer
long ago
long forgotten

It's that record that's too scratched
to play again
but the haunting tune
spills out anyway
and unknowingly
dances by your ear
