Lyrics

Dragonflies

 

We like driving out Route 8

And parking by the lake

All across the marshy shore

You see what you adore

Iridescent-winged helicopters

There's nothing that you love more

No creature can compare

To those insects in the air

 

I laugh at you for not taking a camera with you

Again but that's okay

 

Chorus

I'll take a picture in my mind of chasin' dragonflies

Add it to the scrapbook of memories I have of you and I

No picture can contain the life I've shared with you

No picture lasts forever and my memories never fade

Never fade

 

Burnin' away the summer sun

Whishin' my day to be done

Then a break in the routine

Comes blending in the evergreens

An iridescent-winged helicopter

Glossy as a figurine

Then my memories take off and go

To that day so long ago

 

When I laughed at you for not taking a camera with you

Again but that's okay

 

Repeat Chorus 2 times

 

I'll take your picture store it in our scrapbook

Make it last forever it'll never fade now

I'll take your picture store it in our scrapbook
