Lyrics

We were just sittin’ around reminiscin’
’bout old memories and old friends
Talkin’ ’bout all the good times
The ones we thought would never end
Most of the ones that came to mind
Came from 1959

We talked about plans we’d been makin’
Talked about our hopes and all our dreams
Nothin’ really seemed impossible
No hill we couldn’t climb
We thought we were invincible
Back in 1959

1959, that’s where my heart wants to go
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio, that old radio

We talked about cars and girls
And the ones we loved the most
And how we loved goin’ to Drive-In movies
And never seein’ much of the show
I remember some of those nights and times
Back in 1959

1959, where my heart wants to go
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio, that old radio

We talked about our old Rock ‘n’ Roll band
And that maybe we should do it all again
Maybe have a class reunion
Do some dancin’ with our old girlfriends
Play those old 45s and live 1959 all over again

1959, that’s where my heart wants to go
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio
1959, that’s where my heart wants to go
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio
Every time I hear a memory playin’ on that old radio
