Come take a trip down memory lane
Back before our lives had changed
Back before complications
We'd watch the sunset in the park
Drink tequila after dark
Count the stars until dawn

And in the summer we'd sleep with a beach towel on the sand
In autumn we'd meet for a soy chai latté somewhere, somewhere

And it takes me, takes me back
It takes me way back when
You'd make me, make me melt away
So hold me, hold me close
Hold me close again
And take me, take me way back when

We used to score the back row seats
To B-grade movies every week
Two for one on a Tuesday
We'd walk for hours in the rain
To find our favourite takeaway
Then call a cab to drive us home

And in the winter we'd dry near the open fireplace
In spring we'd just ride 'til the roads turned into nowhere, nowhere

And it takes me, takes me back
It takes me way back when
You'd make me, make me melt away
So hold me, hold me close
Hold me close again
And take me, take me way back when

Take me way back when we laughed and when we cried
And everything between
When everything was you and me
And everything was how it should have been

So, take me, take me back again
Take me, take me way back when
Hold me, hold me close
Hold me close again
And take me, take me way back when

Every thought just takes me, takes me back
Takes me way back when
You'd make me, make me melt away
So hold me, hold me close
Hold me close again
And take me, take me way back when
