lyrics

Sweetest memories from out of nowhere
breeze across my mind’s eye
Halcyon summer sky.
Back to present tense, I clench my teeth against
the wind and the ice,
reveries put to flight.

I may nod and smile, but I want to cry
and I’ll be the one laughing at the funeral
I’m a random access memory kind of guy.

That momentous day, the grand occasion
you want me to recall,
I can’t replay at all.
But what’s crystal clear is sitting near you
on the river one night
counting the fireflies.

Ask me when it was; well now, let me see…
please don’t ask me where, don’t interrogate me
I’m a random access memory casualty.

A quarrel from years ago
still rattling round my head
but I can’t for the life of me
remember what you just said
what was it you just said,
I can’t get it through my head.

In a cheering crowd, I stand and stare
I was just elsewhere momentarily my
random access memory caught me on the fly.

I’m a random access memory kind of guy.
