about

This is a song about a girl I met at Mayfield pool when I was *cough* Nine Years Old. The song also references Orson Welles' 'Citizen Kane'.

lyrics

Well a wise man once said to me
it’s funny what a fella remembers
But I’ll still feel like that boy
if I stop that day from ending
When we swam through the water
and I couldn’t believe I caught her eye
and although my skins now fading white
apart of me is forever in the sunlight.

She wasn’t wearing a white dress
She had no parasol
But when I remember her hand in mine
All I wanna be is nine years old.

Well these days I’m spending more time
Just hiding in the shade
And I’m haunted by the heated night
That followed that summer day
and how we swam through the water
she couldn’t believe she caught my eye
and when she held her hand out to me
the water fed the electricity.

She wasn’t wearing a white dress
She had no parasol
But when I remember her hand in mine
All I wanna be is nine years old.

Well I’m willing to bet that a month hasn’t gone by
in the last 14 years of my silly little life
when I haven’t thought
of that girl in the water
and although we were just kids
apart of me hopes she’ll somehow hear this.
