(Music and Lyrics by Lorenzo Vignando)
While I am playing my uke
a girl reads a book
the story is speaking to her soul
she feels a new sense of purpose
the boy is whatching a film on a touch-screen
the scene is so good he just realized
it's bringing tears to his eyes
the girl will forget the words
bye bye to the lines
the boy is way too concerned
no one sees him cry
they'll soon return the same
people are humming along to this new little song
the melody brings them back to their past
when they where kids at their best
they go like:
Do they still remember these things:
and how come those boys and girls
gave up on their dreams?
and where has the wonder gone?
lost in the routine
just don't forget how you felt
and you will shine again
