1st Verse:

There's a memory stuck in my head tonight.

The one down that old dirt road lined with corn rows,

A place you used to take me.

Where we'd lay in the back of your truck,

Pretendin' to be rebels til' my curfew was up...

CHORUS:

Back when smiles were real,

And that fire was all that I wanted to feel.

When talkin' was easy.

I've forgotten how that feels...

When holdin' on was all we had,

The good times always out did the bad.

Yeah, I miss back then.

Verse 2:

When we laughed so hard we could barely breathe.

Just laid there listenin' to nature sing its' song.

When winter nights weren't so bitter,

And the smell of your sweatshirt never grew old...

CHORUS:

Back when smiles were real,

And that fire was all that I wanted to feel.

When talkin' was easy.

I've forgotten how that feels...

When holdin' on was all we had,

The good times always out did the bad.

Yeah, I miss back then.

Verse 3:

Well I guess that's long gone now,

All the secrets, and kisses shared.

How I thought I'd always feel your hand brush my hair.

No, things didn't turn out like we planned.

I guess at the moment we didn't realize we'd be losin' this much...

CHORUS:

Back when smiles were real,

And that fire was all that I wanted to feel.

When talkin' was easy.

I've forgotten how that feels...

When holdin' on was all we had,

The good times always out did the bad.

Yeah, I miss back then.

There's a memory stuck in my head tonight,

Down that old dirt road...

This is one of the first songs I have ever written. One night I was laying in bed and it kind of just popped into my head! Please give me some input! It is a country song! I am new to song writing :)
