Remember when we were part-time lovers?
Never on the line, coulda found five others
But we found each other's arms
In December, when we were part-time lovers
Sky turned gray for an all-day sucker
And we took it all apart
Remember when

We were diggin' tunnels under the covers
Nothin' more than just another couple surrogate lovers
We pulled at the end of the string until it unraveled
And lay frayed like any frivolous fling

But the skies were baby blue, lady, when I be spendin' days with you
Dazed and confused, a deeper shade when I'm painted a fool

And who'da thunk it I'd be under a spell?
A flash in the pan, but lightning comes with thunder as well
And under my belt, I held the hunger of hell for more
A hundred percent of me was stumblin' for the door
But somethin' ahead of me was beggin' for me to stay
My little soul's navigator has never led me astray
It's kept me at bay
"Remember when?", we would say
Goodbye ten times, but then in the end, we would stay
Those were the days
And in the coals left from a blaze
We were glowin' like a lean ember then

Remember when we were part-time lovers?
Never on the line, coulda found five others
But we found each other's arms
In December, when we were part-time lovers
Sky turned gray for an all-day sucker
And we took it all apart
Remember when

We held each other under Christmas lights
Our bodies rocking like the motion of a ship at night
Grippin' tight
I'd hug and kiss you with that missile sight
But that ship sank and our love is such a vicious tide (Uh)
And I ain't sayin' that I'm Mr. Right
But I've been sittin', reminiscin' 'bout the blissful times that we had
Baby, if you need a list, that's fine
Won't even skip one line, I'll even make it rhyme
It goes

One for the membrane
Two for the nights we get lost in the Chem strain
Three separate strikes, never made it to Fenway
Got four different seasons, still rains on my best day
Just know these memories never will fade, never will fade
My bones shiver when you drift away
Please remember my face

Remember when we were part-time lovers?
Never on the line, coulda found five others
But we found each other's arms
In December, when we were part-time lovers
Sky turned gray for an all-day sucker
And we took it all apart
Remember when (Remember when)

These memories never will fade, never will fade
These memories never will fade, never will fade
These memories never will fade, never will fade
These memories never will fade
