to dream at all." -Grey's Anatomy

Remember when you took me to the maple trees

You told me this was your idea of romantic

And I silently agreed

Remember when you sat with me on the pier

We fished at sunset and you baited my hook

Remember when we stood at the river, beneath the fireworks

I grabbed your hand and we wondered what the other was thinking

Or the time we went to the movies

And I was glad we weren't like all the other couples

But Daddy still worried

I remember the summer night we stayed out staring at the stars

Waiting for that first kiss

It eventually happened, and it was awful

That's when I decided to tell you all my secrets

And then you became one

I was so fast to push you away

I swear it better be true;

That we never fade from the lives we touch

Because you were the one that made me hate the rain

Yeah it's pathetic, me writing love stories

But this is all I have now,

And I must quit lying to myself

So this is my goodbye, but first I have to ask

Do you remember when we were young?
