Forgotten memories come flooding back
A full on downpour.  A nostalgic attack
Submerged in waters of days gone by
Obeying the current.  Embracing the ride
Familiar fragrances, each way I turn
Battles I lost.  Bridges I burned
Tapping my foot to a tune that I know
A beat, I repeated, now, so long ago

The lyrics are different, but exactly the same
Im hearing the message, not rhyming in vane
I toggle the volume, until it’s just right
Picking up what I missed, before there was light 

I have a new view, on all that surrounds
I’m armed with more wisdom this time around
To myself, I chuckle, at my ignorant bliss
And dry a tear for the times that I miss
