Press play and wait 
For the song to come on
It is your favourite
The one with the guitar
And the lyrics you like
Yeah, I remember.

Here it comes
I can hear it now
This is the same song
With different lyrics
To tell a familiar tale
Yeah, I remember.

I cannot think
All I can do is hear
A noise far too loud
Turn it down
Actually, turn it off
Are you sure?
Yeah, I’m sure.

Because I remember the first song
And how it played
With the guitar
And the lyrics I liked
And how it stopped
Without the guitar
And the lyrics I hated.

That is how I know
How this song will go
That is how I know
Not to be around
When the song
Starts to slow
That is how I know.

Just one more time
Don’t you want to listen
Just one more time
To the bridge you cross
For a chorus so good
Just one more time
Please, just one more time.

Press play and wait
Here it comes
I cannot think
Because I remember the first song
That is how I know
Just one more time
Is not enough.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    I don’t know why I Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams in my head. Only replaced the lyrics with yours

    Another lovely speech, Captain. You made me jump in fright because this particular piece shares its title with my book! Here’s hoping we eventually get that troublesome song out of our heads.

    Until then, I suppose we ought to hit repeat!

  4. Hello! I am tagging you with the Christmas tag (because I think it will be funny and I’d love to hear your answers). My post will be up tomorrow afternoon. I hope you can do it!
