Heady youthful years
when we lived
beyond our fears
lost in the soundtrack of our lives.

It returns to stir us
in later life.
Tuneful memories
linked to
exhilaration or emotional pain,
love found and lost.
Long days and nights out,
inhabited by the cast
of our former selves.

One ling of a song,
four bars of music,
and we are transported back.
It is as close to time travel
as we will ever get.

Fully alive,
raw and rough
around the edges.
Musical history
that does not exist in museums,
but only in our minds,
as each one keeps a
soundtrack of their lives.
