Lyrics:

I'd like to take you to see LA, and the places I once called my home
It would kinda be like going back where it all began
We'd stroll down South Normandie, to the heart of Korea Town
Where I lived through the first five songs of my life
And I'd play them again on my new guitar
And we'd laugh at the years that's gone by
At how young we were, and at how little has changed
Though things may not look the same, and you moved and you changed your name
Still all the things we had could be ours again
Just like the songs we're singing

Sing, love
Sing like you sang the first time
When we weren't afraid to choose
And never look back again

I remember the first time you sang for me, I remember the first time we danced
I remember the words and the melody still today
It was a song about leaving home
And you left, and you came back alone
Now every single time I hear you sing since then
It seems like only yesterday

But when we dance, we dance for tomorrow
We twirl, we sway, we fly
And we dance away all your reasons to say goodbye
To say goodbye

I'd like to take you to Hollywood
'Cause baby, you'd sure be a star
And I know some people, who know some people there
And if we would just take a chance
and forget how this story ends
Then all the things we had would be ours again
Is that not why we're singing?

Sing, love
Sing like you sang the first time
When we weren't afraid to choose
And never look back again
