The Song Remembers When
Trisha Yearwood Lyrics

I was standing at the counter
I was waiting for the change
When I heard that old familiar music start
It was like a lighted match had been tossed into my soul
It was like a dam had broken in my heart
After taking every detour
Gettin' lost and losin track
So that even if I wanted I could not find my way back
After driving out the memory
Of the way things might have been
After I'd forgotten all about us
The song remembers when

We were rolling through the Rocky's
We were up above the clouds
When a station out of Jackson played that song
And it seemed to fit the moment
And the moment seemed to freeze
When we turned the music up and sang along
And there was a God in Heaven
And the world made perfect sense
We were young and were in love

And we were easy to convince
We were headed straight for Eden
It was just around the bend
And though I have forgotten all about it
The song remembers when

I guess something must have happened
And we must have said goodbye
And my heart must have been broken
Though I can't recall just why
The song remembers when

Well, for all the miles between us
And for all the time that's past
You would think I haven't gotten very far
And I hope my hasty heart
Will forgive me just this once
If I stop to wonder how on earth you are

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracing
Around corners I have turned
Still I guess some things we bury
Are just bound to rise again
Yeah, and even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when

Tracy Lynn Walker,
"... and I mean NO SONG has ever been better written to the story of what music does to the soul ..."

Wow. You must be REALLY old to have been able to listen to every other song ever written. ;-)

Try this one, just in case you missed it, and see what you think:
That's Why I Write Songs by Jamey Johnson.wmv

And, by the way, the real story teller for this song is the person who wrote it, Hugh Prestwood (though I believe that Tricia Yearwood sings it better than anyone else ever could):

I am a songwriter. but I think this is one of the greatest country songs ever written. and Tricia does it beautifully.

No time for jokes.

A shiver goes up my spine everytime I hear this song - and I challenge anyone to say there isn't a song out there somewhere that doesn't throw you back to a certain time or someone.
