“I still remember”

I Still Remember
Bloc Party

i still remember
how you looked that afternoon
there was only you

you said “it’s just like a full moon”
blood beats faster in our veins
we left our trousers by the canal
and our fingers, they almost touched

you should have asked me for it
i would have been brave
you should have asked me for it
how could i say no?

and our love could have soared
over playgrounds and rooftops
every park bench screams your name
i kept your tie

i’ve gone wherever you wanted

(i still remember)

and on that teachers’ training day
we wrote our names on every train
laughed at the people off to work
so monochrome and so lukewarm

and i can see our days are becoming nights
i could feel your heartbeat across the grass
we should have run
i would go with you anywhere
i should have kissed you by the water

you should have asked me for it…
and our love could have soared…
i would let you if you asked me
i still remember
