lyrics

What I’ll always remember, I’ll remember the bridge,
On the city side a ripped up flag.
The trees were too close and the branches would drag,
And if this is a memory, I don’t know what love is.

I remember a time when I was younger than this,
The river was part of the air that day,
And every single time we drove home that way,
That faded old flag would blow me a kiss.

And now they’re fixing up Percussion Bridge...
Gonna make it a slick new ridge of Cubic Zirconia crossing the deep blue sea...
And take it away from me.

I suppose it was unsafe, I suppose it was frail,
But it made me feel special that I gave it a name.
And it was just a public structure, but it was mine all the same,
And every other bridge seemed quiet and pale.

That beat was so funky, like a diamond with soul,
And all it took was a car to explode.
My grown-up mind says it couldn’t handle the load,
But the boy says “man, that bridge could sure rock n’ roll!”

Why do we remember tiny little things?
I was four...swinging on my mother’s bedroom door.
Why do we remember tiny little things?
I was three...learning how to tell a bush from a tree.
But don’t we all remember all these little things?
When I was two, and I wanted something higher than myself, I just closed my eyes,
And I flew.
