Do you remember

Do you remember?
The summer
We sold strawberry tarts on the front wall
Tie dying our lives in the backyard
And the neighbours rolled their eyes
And we didn't care atall.

And it arrived like a freight train in April
And left like a mouse in September
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
And we kissed in the rain in October
We couldn't believe it was over
But it was over
Do you remember?

The summer
Our best friends were the bluebirds
Because they took us back to the sea-side
Where we ate ice-cream like it was water
Where we took our hearts right off our sleeves
Let them wash away in the tide

And it arrived like a freight train in April
And left like a mouse in September
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
And we kissed in the rain in October
We couldn't believe it was over
But it was over
Do you remember?

Kiss me like you did in October
We can pretend that it isn't over
Do you remember?
I know
that
you
remember.
