That's How I'll Remember You

Album: The Sound of a Million Dreams (2011)
  • Wakin' up in the sand, sunburn on your nose
    You scream and squeezed my had
    When your east Kentucky toes hit the Atlantic
    Summertime in Brooklyn, Mustard on your lip
    I knew I loved you by the bottom of the fifth
    I never planned it

    A million perfect moments go rushin' through my brain
    Our first trip to the ocean, your first time on a plane
    When you look over your shoulder, baby, you can choose
    To remember me however you want to
    That's how I'll remember you

    The dress that you were wearin', soakin' up the stains
    I can still see your mascara, though I can't recall the pain
    Of what came after
    You were even beautiful tellin' me goodbye
    Maybe my version of the truth is just a lie
    What Does It Matter?
    What Does It Matter?

    A million perfect moments go rushin' through my brain
    Every time I smell October you're standing in the rain
    When you look over your shoulder, baby, you can choose
    To Remember me however you want to
    That's how I'll remember you
    I've forgot the bitter, the winter's just a blur
    I savor the sweet as if the summer's all we were
    And ever will be, oh, and I still see

    A million perfect moments go rushin' through my brain
    Every time I touch the ocean, anytime I taste the rain
    When you look over your shoulder, baby, you can choose
    To remember me however you want to
    That's how I'll remember you.
