Story

This is one of those tunes that was written with an evil grin... Don't we all have that "one that got away" and you just gotta smirk when you think of the crazy shit you used to do or say to each other... and you sometimes wonder where you would be or WHO you would be if you would have ended up together as adults?

 

Lyrics

You were with me

Together we’d run all night long

Brave and Free

The radio would play our song

Bare feet

Hearts pounding wild with every beat

Back seat

Dad’s Chevy with the windows steamed

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

And I’m hoping that you think about me too

 

Sweet sweat

In innocence we’d play along       

Lover’s pledge

To one another we belonged

Class clown

Had the answers down for everything

I’m too proud

I was tough as nails and right as rain

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

I’d go back today to see your face and dream away

 

Paint me a picture of dreams gone by

 

Fools pride

You knew how to put me in my place

Well I lied, you cried, we tried, but it died

I couldn’t keep those tears from off your face

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

I’d go back today to touch your face and dream away

 

Paint me a picture of dreams gone by

I’d give anything for those days gone by

 

Yesterday

The summer dreams came back to me

Separately

You and I would live our histories!

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

And I’d die a million times to share your space and dream with you

 

Won’t you paint me a picture of dreams gone by?

I’d give anything for those days gone by, those days gone by

Whoah, Oooh, dreams gone by

Paint me a picture!

Dreams gone by
