Remember when the music
Came from wooden boxes
Strung with silver wires
And as we sang
The words would set our hearts on fire
To believe in things
So we'd sing

Remember when the music
Brought us all together
To stand inside the rain
And as we'd join hands
We'd meet in the refrain
With dreams to live
And hope to give

Remember when the music
Was the best that we'd dream of
For our's children's time
And as we'd worked we'd sing
Cause we knew time
Was just a lie
A gift to say
A gift that future gave


Remember when the music
Was a rock we could cling to
So we would not despair
And as we sang we'd knew
We'd hear an echo in the air
And if we weren't smiling then
We'd smile again
And all the times I listened
And all the times I heard
And all the melodies I'm missing
And all the magic words
All the beautiful words
All the beautiful voices
And all the choices we had then
I hope you find you got
Those kind of choices once again

Remember when the music
Brought the night
Across the valley
And as we hum the melody
We'd be safe within the sound
So we'd sleep
To awake with dreams
And promises to keep
