    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 damm had broken in my heart

    After taking every detour
    Getting lost and losing 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've forgotten all about us
    The song remembers when

    We were rolling through the Rockies
    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 passed
    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 backtracking
    Around corners I have turned
    Still I guess some things we bury
    Are just bound to rise again
    For even if the whole world has forgotten
    The song remembers when
    Even if the whole world has forgotten
    The song remembers when
