lyrics

Down at the old oak grove
Where no one ever goes
Amidst foxes and leaves
Ferns and old oak trees

Remember when it was summer?
We'd swim between those raindrops, falling down
We were wet anyway
And we knew we'd never have those times again

The hummingbirds would gather
Fly haloes 'round your head
The moss grew softer and fatter
And daisies crowned your bed

Remember when we were lovers?
We'd measure days in starlight, counting down
We were young anyway
And we knew we'd never have those times again

Remember when it was summer?
We'd pass that bottle 'round and 'round and 'round
We were drunk anyway
And we knew we'd never have those times again
