about

A nostalgic tribute to my hometown of Kelowna, BC, and a few amazing places that are now no more.

lyrics

I Remember

I remember walking through the courtyard
Where market fleas would peddle ancient coins and vintage lampshades
And kids with hungry eyes for ninja turtles, feeding their addiction
To the sugar rush of deep fried mini doughnuts
The ones all dressed in cinnamon
The kind that you could eat all summer long
I used to find them there on Sundays, but development tore down that big old hall

And I remember waterslides and sunscreen
Kamikaze carpets
The flavour of banana freezy pops
Inner tubes and tunnels, twisting turning
Wipe out competitions
Molten pavement screaming at my feet
The first time a pretty girl had given me her phone number to call
I used to go there with my brother, but development tore down that waterfall

And I was told everything changes
Some things you love, they’ll go away
And it may be the sign of growing older

And I remember dinosaurs and train rides
Hopping off and hiding in the cave to scare my family
Prehistoric push cars, mini golf, Forty Foot Fred
Standing at his post, always waving
To where Alapalooza was the first live show I ever saw
Nearby in a building called The Boardwalk, but development tore down its dusty walls

And I was told everything changes
Some things you love, you’re gonna hate to see’em leave
And it may be the sign of growing older
But you still remember

They say a salmon, it can find its own way home
From instincts in the water tied to microscopic particles
It knows it when it gets there, it feels the moment memory starts flooding in
And it finds out there are streams it can no longer swim
Old chapters sometimes close, making way for new beginnings
Looking back is hard, when all your favourite rocks are out of place
Well you can reminisce in sadness or look back with a smile
Upon your face

And I was told everything changes
Some things you love, you’re gonna hate to see’em leave
And it may be the sign of growing older
Well I’ve seen everything changing
Some things I loved, they are long long gone
And it must be the sign, I’ve grown older
But I still remember
I’ll always remember
