Do you remember?

Do you remember?

Liner Notes: 

My friend told me about how she met her husband. So I turned it into this song.

Lyrics: 

I was fifteen. Young and sweet and shy.
You were seventeen.

We met at the church carnival by the shore.
I’d never seen you around there before.

I could tell you were there for the girls.
Cheeky and good looking.
In the good old days before cell phones.

You asked if you could call me.
I said I’d call you instead.
You wrote your phone number on my hand.

When I got home I was so nervous.
What if I called and someone else answered?
What if you didn’t remember me?
How many girls did you give your number to?

These were the thoughts running through my head.
Am I doing something I might regret?

But I knew there was something there.
Do you remember?

I was twenty-one. A little wiser now.
You were twenty-three.

We stood in the church cathedral by the bay.
Our perfectly magical wedding day.

I knew you were there just for me.
Still cheeky and good looking.
In the good old days when we still lived at home.

We made our vows. We promised.
I said I’d be yours. You’re mine.
You placed that gold band on my hand.

I felt happiness and excitement.
What adventures lay ahead for us two?
Is love really enough to make it?
Would we now have to behave like grown-ups?

These were the thoughts running through my head.
Were we too young to jump in just yet?

But I knew there was something there.
Do you remember?

My love, do you remember?

Almost ten years later. Now I’m thirty one.
You are thirty three.

We’re in the hospital by the park.
There’s a glimmer of light, but the rest is dark.

We know we are here for our children.
So cheeky and good looking.
These are the good old days for sure.

Our daughter asks if she can hold them.
Her twin brothers small and golden.
We place a newborn in her hands.

Leaving soon and I’m so nervous.
What if this is something we can’t handle?
How do we take care of three?
Who’s bright idea was this pregnancy?

These were the thoughts running through my head.
But I wouldn’t change this life we’ve led.

Because I know there’s something here.
Everything that we hold dear.
Worth the journey and every tear.
From a carnival held down by the pier.
We definitely have built something here.

Treasured moments we’ll always remember.
