To The Spring Break Love That “Faded Away”

Everyone says spring break is not the place to find love…at least in college.

Years ago, I’d probably agree with that but for whatever reason for two years in a row, spring break has actually been THE place to find it, at least for me. Not sure if it was just the smell in the air, the heat of the sun getting to us, or the beers we drank but everytime you and I were together in a spring break town, we became unstoppable.

I’ll never forget our first kiss in Panama City under the cowboy hat. The butterflies you gave me all day leading up to that moment and the butterflies that stuck around for the next year following. I’ll never forget your text to me that next day “103195” and how I made you remember those numbers before you were allowed to kiss me for the first time.

I’ll never forget how happy I was in Daytona on St. Patrick’s Day with you. I’ll never forget the words “Wanna be reckless with me today?” and what that meant to us. Oh and how about that elevator ride?

I’ll never forget the night we blindly headed out to find a somewhere to eat then ended up at an old shabby place but decided to go for it, hoping our fake ID’s (or lack of) would score us some booze. After that, we went on an adventure to get Daytona airbrushed t-shirts and bike week tanks.

I’ll never forget all the memories of those spring breaks and the weeks after them. The countless times I couldn’t breathe because you made me laugh so hard. I’ll never forget the moment I realized that against all my instincts, I had finally let go and fallen for you.

The only thing I want to forget, but can’t, is the pain I felt when you weren’t strong enough to catch me after I finally fell. You really did fade away…

These lyrics will get anyone who’s found a love that faded away without any explanation. Gone, just like that. 

“Faded Away” by Luke Bryan

I don’t remember much about that time,
Just the smell of the air and your hand in mine.
Riding the strip, sittin’ on my lap
In the back of the truck with the only friends I had.

It was spring break, we were out late,
And I though goodness for heavens sake.
When I saw you…
And then I kissed you…

On a balcony over the sun
In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
We made love as the waves rolled in
And we owned that town for one weekend.

Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
Like the sound of the boat
Starting up, heading out of the bay
Girl you… faded away.

I still taste the shots on your lips that night,
And the smoke from the club still burns my eyes
Feel of your body takin’ off your dress,
Waking up that morning in a tangled mess.
So if I’da known, I’da held on…
A little bit longer and stronger with nothing to lose,
Cause I still see you…

On a balcony over the sun
In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
We made love as the waves rolled in
And we owned that town for one weekend.

Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
Like the sound of the boat
Starting up, heading out of the bay
Girl you… faded away.

On a balcony over the sun
In a chair by the rail, high above everyone
I watched you drive through the gate
Without saying the words I needed to say.

Like the tan on my skin, our names in the sand
Like the tears on your face
And the sun going down that day
Girl you… faded away.
You faded away.
