The song begins
And I somehow
Know every word

The memory
Is pulled like a thread
Long wound tight

And the words flow free
As I sing from my heart
Remembering it all

The drive down a country road
Our windows rolled down
Nestled into you

And we drove
Going nowhere

Listening to the music
And the night
And each other’s heartbeats

And as I sing the words
I am sixteen again
Forever young
