It's kept in yearbooks and in old journals
and in the back of an old yellow car

where the radio plays somewhere in time.

It's in the song that you used to whistle
on your way back from Spring Break '75 -
it made you feel alive.

It's in the comfort of old sweaters.
It's in the spring-scent air.
It's everywhere you're losing hair

and it grows now with every day ending -
it's in your closing eyes.
