The Sunshine of Your Youth
Cheerleader

Lyrics


It's a Hallmark family photo, circa 1995.

And it looks like you're all happy, but you can't imagine why.
And now you're trying to explain things that need no explanation.
And you're searching for some way to do it over again, now it's over.

Now that you're older, are you dreaming of the sunshine of your youth?

You know that it's useless looking back, there's no redemption there for you.

You make it a promise to yourself, you'll put those habits on the shelf.

Can you make a promise to be honest with yourself?


While you were out searching for something,
all of your friends have settled down.

Has it been this way forever
and you've only noticed now?
And now you're trying to explain things that need no explanation.
And you're searching for some way to do it over again, now it's over.

Now that you're older, are you dreaming of the sunshine of your youth?

You know that it's useless looking back, there's no redemption there for you.

You make it a promise to yourself, you'll put those habits on the shelf.

Can you make a promise to be honest with yourself?

Now are you dreaming?
Tell me how you're feeling.
And now you're trying to explain,
if you could only find some way to start over again.
It's not too late, you'll find the strength to start again.
