It wasn't the time, it was the color
My mother wore a yellow dress
Carrying my brother
The summer always stung

Bright like metal
The bank was built
With green glass
I felt so forgettable

One look, one look
One look and he'll remember
One look, one look
One look and he'll remember

It wasn't the time, it was the color
Dad in his red Pendleton shirt
Shag carpet, brown sofa
The summer always hot

White and still
He asked if I would
Kiss him goodbye
I knew the answer, "I will"

One look, one look
One look and he'll remember
One look, one look
One look and he'll remember

It wasn't the time, it was the color
Tastes far away and feels like gray
I miss the sound, I'll miss it forever
The summer always empty

And yellow
He kissed me that day
By the pizza place
I felt so forgettable

One look, one look
One look and he'll remember
One look, one look
One look and he'll remember
