    Lyrics

    It was the first snow of the season
    I can almost see you breathing in the middle of that empty street
    Sometimes I still see myself in that lonesome bedroom
    Playing my guitar and singing songs of hope for a better future

    Life is only as good as the memories we make
    And I'm taking back what belongs to me

    Polaroids of classrooms unattended
    These relics of rememberence are just like shipwrecks
    Only they're gone faster than the smell after it rains

    Last night while everyone was sleeping
    I drove through my old neighborhood
    And resurrected memories from ashes

    We said that we would never fit in
    When we were really just like them
    Does rebellion ever make a difference?

    Life is only as good as the memories we make
    And I'm taking back what belongs to me
    Polaroids of classrooms unattended
    These relics of remembrence are just like shipwrecks
    Only they're gone faster than the smell after it rains

    So long Astoria, I found a map to buried treasure
    And even if we come home empty handed, we'll still have our
    stories of battle scars, pirate ships and wounded hearts
    Broken bones and all the best of friendships

    And when this hourglass has filtered out its final grain of sand
    I raise my glass to the memories we had

    This is my wish and I'm takin back, I'm takin them all back

      i made my brother and sister watch the goonies for the first time last week, and they had both grown up with my playing this song on the guitar.

      once i saw the astoria country club, and that that was the name of the city, it all hit me- the song was written in reference to the goonies-

      "yeah this is my wish. and it didn't come true. so i'm taking it back. i'm taking 'em all back"
      in the wishing well?

      so crazy!

      i'm surprised not that many people have talked in this discussion so far.. but yes, amazing song. it reminds me so much of my old neighborhood. me and my best friend, will were always inseperable. then i moved, and i havent seen that boy in 4 years.. i miss him more than anything.

      Last night while everyone was sleeping
      I drove through my old neighborhood
      And resurrected memories from ashes

      We said that we would never fit in
      When we were really just like them
      Does rebellion ever make a difference?

      Life is only As good as the memories we make
      And im taking back what belongs to me
      Polaroids of classrooms unattended
      These relics of remembrence are just like shipwrecks
      Only theyre gone faster than the smell after it rains

      So long Astoria I found a map to buried treasure
      And even if we come home empty handed we'll still have our
      stories of battle scars, pirate ships and wounded hearts,
      Broken bones and all the best of friendships
