Rewind, 1998
Played in the basement while your parents drank
February throwing light away
Upstairs I turned down the lamp
Played your CD's in your room and watched you and your sister dance
Second hand smoke coming down my throat and back up as I laugh

Back before we didn't take advice
Back before our spirits weren't so tender
You think I wouldn't remember

King and Queen
Feet in the grass heads in a back yard dream
The memory is wiped off clean

What I know for sure is that time turns all luck around and around
And it wore your parents out
Spent that night crying with your face in the couch
You gave those high school nights away like everybody does
To the people that you thought you wanted
And you wonder how your hollow heart got so haunted

King and Queen
Of places where we'd never want to be
The money spent at seventeen and on me
The memory is wiped off clean

Alcohol dried up your mother
Give that thought sunlight and water
Makes you wonder why you even bother
Watching TV getting high
Telling me how hard you tried
Making memories of barely getting by we are the

King and Queen
The ones who no one ever got to see
Just sitting 'round a rotted dream
Lean on me
The simple life can be so mean
The memory is wiped off clean

Though the band still embrace their roots, it was their mutual interest in the great pop songwriters and lyricists of the last 5 decades that formed Decades. ... more
