lyrics

I’m walking in the shopping square
Where fountains used to flow
The friends I had no longer there
And some I now don’t even know

The memories come rushing in
It was a place for youth
Our ragged hair and shirts pulled out
Boys hanging out for truth.

Where’s the party on Saturday night
That’s what we need to know
And who will get their invite
And could we still just crash and go

The memories come rushing in
It was a place for youth
With willing smiles and careful plans
Girls trying out the truth

Like shadows on the street
She comes and she goes
The sun shines – she’s always there
Behind the cloud, that’s when she goes

I don’t care where we are
She’s always in my heart
Now that I’m back in this place
The years can never make us part

We came together after school
And gathered outside Smiths
The girls would be not too impressed
With our Smoke on the Water riffs

The memories are fading now
It is a time that’s passed
Ghosts and echoes haunt the square
Caught in a photograph
