"Remember When" as written by Ellie Catherine Macnamara and Louise Anne Macnamara....
I remember when, when we sat outside,

Digesting "nourriture" that didn't suit their eyes.

We stood our ground, and took it as a layer to our shells,

And still you laugh at me. Why?

Remember when we thought we'd known each other, all our lives?

Those are the types that you can never really lose, and when you fell into a trap,

I knew you more than you knew you.



I need to go, I need to get away from everything

I'll have to run to get away from here

I need to go, I need to get away from everything

Just for a while, I need to get away from here.



And so we slowly slowly climbed over a ladder with no other side

And so I'll plead with you one last time,

Just to consider my point of view,

The path on which you walk will never fail to keep you safe,

But it will crumble underneath me, minus you.

    I heard them for the first time at a live show when they came to the US. They are amazing.

    General CommentThis is great. I have never heard such a great harmony. Their voices just sync so perfectly.

    I think this song is about two close friends or maybe lovers, who never known each other for a very long time and are very close but they are now having arguments and starting to drift apart.

    I love this line "And still you laugh at me. Why?" I think it's indicating the betrayal she feels. She's come on hard times and her friend is laughing at her. So she is saying, "After all we've been through, how could you do that to me?"


    "The path on which you walk will never fail to keep you safe,

    But it will crumble underneath me, minus you."

    I think this shows, the other person is being quite self centered. They are going down the path they want and not conisdering how it might affect their friend.
