Do you remember how it felt?
The first time the sun rays gleamed warmth on your skin
The first time you felt the raindrops slide down your arms
The first time you felt the breeze squeeze through your hair
Do you remember?
The first time you fell in love with the world
Do you remember who you were with?
The first time you laughed till your cheeks hurt
Do you remember what it was like?
The first time you ached and felt your heart turn into ice
Do you remember?
The first time your eyes met hers
The first time her hands touched yours
Do you remember how it felt?
Because I’ve been searching for something real
