Now and then you cross my mind
Reminiscing about the times we spent together
Two young kids thought it’d last forever
Late nights, breakups
So many times that we’d make up
That was your favorite part

When I think of you now
I still remember
Trying to figure it out
All I remember
Is picking the pieces off the ground
And asking myself
Did I let you down?

Summer break brought distant skies
Driving through so many miles to be together
So in love, I couldn’t wait to get there
Black dress, blue eyes
Sneaking downstairs to say goodnight
That’s what I miss the most

When I think of you now
I still remember
Trying to figure it out
All I remember
Is picking the pieces off the ground
And asking myself
Did I let you down?

All those years I left behind
All those pictures in my mind
Take me there
All the dreams drawn in the sand
All the love we thought would last
Take me there

When I think of you now
I still remember
Trying to figure it out
All I remember
Is picking the pieces off the ground
And asking myself
Did I let you down?
