lyrics

I remember when we used to lay upon the grass
Basking in these summer days
Living them as if they were our last
Oh, what fools time makes of us
Thinking that we'd live forever
Acting like we're tools that never rust

It shows when we dance close to the fire
We hope that it sets the sky ablaze
We know that this will last forever
Held close to me these memories to keep

It brings me back to all the parties held up on the beach
Everyone just stood and laughed while everybody's thoughts were out to sea
Won't you pass that bottle 'round?
Wait until it's good and empty
Try to be the last one to the ground

It shows when we dance close to the fire
We hope that it sets the sky ablaze
We know that this will last forever
Held close to me these memories to keep

All the years drive by and still, I'm here
I'm behind the wheel but I've forgotten how to steer
I know I shouldn't laugh but still, I crack a smile
'Cause I know I'll be atop the big pile
With everything in tune

It shows when we dance close to the fire
We hope that it sets the sky ablaze
We know that this will last forever
Held close to me these memories to keep
