When I Got a Whiff of You

I was in a diner on a Tuesday at noon
Saw you waiting there alone to be seated
You were so cheerful and happy to see me
We had lunch together and you treated

You talked about what was going on
and I told you what I was up to
We found out our schedules were open
and we chose something we could do

Something happened there with you
I can pinpoint when I felt so much joy
It was as I hugged you and had my nose
in your soft hair & thought “Oh Boy”

When I got a whiff of you
I remembered everything again
When I got a whiff of you
All I thought of was back then
Your young eyes & pearly whites
Those romantic summer nights
When we’d go out to Pinto Lake
and share a chocolate shake
Your innocence I didn’t take
All that drama we went through
Something was quakin’ in me
when I got a whiff of you
When I got a whiff of you

We got in your car & you had me drive
Decided to see a screwball comedy
I don’t remember the plotline at all
I was thinkin’ of what we used to be

We held hands again, it was sweet
Nothin’ like kids do these days
As you watched the movie screen
I was thinking of all the ways

I’d express those familiar feelings
My heart and soul was in overdrive
I forgot how good you were to me
Every second there, I felt so alive

And when I got a whiff of you
I remembered everything again
When I got a whiff of you
All I thought of was back then
Your young eyes & pearly whites
Even the unfortunate fights
That one time you wanted steak
You hated your birthday cake
And later I got bit by a snake
But we still kissed in the canoe
All that flooded my memory
When I got a whiff of you

When I got a whiff of you.
