I remember a summer's day
I remember walking up to you
I remember my face turned red
And I remember staring at my feet
I remember before we met
I remember sitting next to you
And I remember pretending I wasn't looking

So we'll try and try
Even if it lasts an hour
With all our might
We'll try and make it ours
Cause we're on our way
We're on our way to fall in love

I remember your old guitar
I remember I Can't Explain
I remember the way it looked around your neck
And I remember the day it broke
I remember song you sang
I remember the way you looked tonight
And I remember the way it made me feel

So we try and try
Even if it lasts an hour
With all our might
We'll try and make it ours
Because we're on our way
We're on our way to fall in love

    General CommentI am a recent YLT fan, it's because this shy guy I like (ok really like) mentioned them, specifically Our Way To Fall. Now I can't hear it without thinking of him, it's so romantic, and he blushes like the guy in the song too. :) Not only did I discover a great guy, but a great band too. Still crossing my fingers about the guy.

    General CommentThis song is adorable. Ira and Georgia have been together for well over a decade now, and Ira's still more than able to write perfect long songs. They're falling deeper into love, still unable to forget that first moment he knew they would. Endlessly charming and a mixtape staple.

    General CommentAfter hearing about Ben Gibbards favorite song, i tracked it down and it is now one of mine.

    the music is so amazing. its almost like shoe gazing but the lyrics play a part in it, which are also superb.

    love it.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I secretly adore love songs, especially ones so catchy and remarkable. And you can really relate, even if it's just that elementary school crush you had on that boy that never looked at you, ya know? Dazzling...

    General Commentso very simple ... to see them pull it off so effortlessly with half a drum kit, an acoustic guitar and bass. an excellent love song, pretty amazing that Ira can write this sort of stuff after being so far from the start of his relationship with Georgia..

    General CommentIt really seems like the chorus is about them having sex for the first time. We'll try and try, even if it lasts an hour. It really sounds like it. Like they're sealing the deal on how their relationship has bloomed. Just an observation. That's kind of what I've always thought about it.
