Lyrics

Barely by Ileana Burdine

do you remember how it was the day we met
I barely do though pretend I don't forget
and I asked you, and you asked me
will we be true
we swore upon our hearts
I'll always love you
do you remember when we held our heads so close
and we told secrets dark
the ones we guarded most
our foreheads touching
our lips barely making sound
taking care not to betray this sacred ground

I remember how I wanted to be
I remember what I wanted to see
Don't ask, don't ask, don't ask me to explain
I don't have the words

Do you remember walking underneath the stars
You said that they were taken straight from our hearts
Your hand was holding mine and we could barely breath
You chose that moment there to fall upon your knees

I remember how I wanted to be
I remember what I wanted to see
Don't ask, don't ask, don't ask me to explain
I don't have the words

So much time has passed that I barely remember
All the promises we made
Time has clouded our path and I surrendered
To the life that was safe

Do you remember walking on your own that day
'Cause I remember how you turned and walked away
And I asked you and you asked me, are we still true
And we stood silent there as shadows often do

I remember how I wanted to be
I remember what I wanted to see
Don't ask, don't ask, don't ask me to explain
I don't have the words
I don't have the words
I don't have the words
