Have you ever heard a song that takes you back in time? Consider this thought.

Music is the ultimate super hero of the senses.

From Zeppelin and Springsteen to the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. No matter the style, the results are the same.


Here and now, in another place

moments I thought were lost in time

New beat and different sentiments

same melody and rhyme


Haunting thoughts of a past life

I was sure I had let go

I put them all away, so that no-one else would know


It’s magic how a melody

Rejuvenates the senses

Replays the scenes of days gone by

Without the pain or consequences


A virtual fountain of youth

We bathe our memories in

Oh god what I would give to be in that place again


Its been years

But I remember

Like it was yesterday

That music in the background, was the song we used to play


Hearing it now, transports my mind

to moments melancholy sweet

Childhood dreams and promises

We thought we’d always keep


But time is like a river

Always changing as it flows

And we are paper boats, afloat

the current will us where to go


Back to adult responsibilities

lifes pressures and demands

To taking care of family

the future and it’s plans


But then our hero comes along

takes our spirits far away

Lost in the lyrics of a song

in the words of yesterday


For a moment time stands still

and we let down our defenses

Thanks to this powerful thing called music

the superhero of our senses
