Birmingham 1982

Dinner call in the late afternoon 
The sun step down for the moon 
Story books, night lights 
And I still remember songs 
Pianos sing along 
And the coloured sounds of spring 
Its harmony 
Do you still remember? 
Fireflies, four-leaf clovers 
Fingerpainted skin 
Where life was a reaction 
And love was just laughing with a friend 

Down out in the backyard stream 
Make a wish for your dream 
Maybe a kiss maybe a ring 
And I still remember songs 
The banjos sing along 
And the crisp sound of fall 
I still recall 
Do you still remember? 

Flashlights under covers 
Raindrops on my tongue 
When life had no distractions 
And love wasn't hurting anyone 

Fireflies, four-leaf clovers 
Fingerpainted skin 
We don't know where we're going 
We'll get nowhere if we've forgotten where we've been 
-Maria Taylor
