We sat all silent by the lakeside
Buddy Holly singing close by
Feeling the melodies
Of his songs

Layin’ quiet by the low tide
Ritchie Valens playing nearby
Hearing the rhythm and riffs
Of his guitar

As August heeds to Fall
I hope that we can recall
Birds take their southern cue
As we stay laidback and amused
Bass breaks the water top
May this sensation not stop
Leaves transform from green to gold
Our love will never grow old

And as I hold you now
You make my lonely heart beat
Such a feeling I can’t describe
When you make my lonely heart beat
Heaven must be close by
When you make my lonely heart beat
Sensation I can’t deny
When you make my lonely heart beat

Breathing deeply by the shoreline
Elvis Presley rocking nearby
Feeling the energy
Of his style

Stirring slowly by the campfire
Chuck Berry rolling close by
Hearing the rhythm and rhymes
Of his poems

As days shorten to night
We squeeze hold each other tight
Autumn breeze picks up speed
You are all I’ll ever need
Firefly does its dance
To this thing we call romance
Waves to shore slowly lap
In our black and white photograph

As night gives way to dawn
This path we’ll continue on
Our vibe certified priceless
Ringing true from East to West

Swaying softly ‘neath the sunrise
Rock ‘n’ rollin’ all the time
Living the memories
Of our lives
