It’s amazing how a single song can stir so much emotion, dig up so many memories, lift, and drop your soul.
It deluges you, with feelings long forgotten, striking you. It takes you away, far far away, to wherever.
You feel it, on your skin, underneath it. Your senses hammered.
It takes you away. Al Khawaneej Road, 3 am, spontaneity, youth, innocence. Long ago.
You remember it all. You are there. The AC blowing cold. The sky dark, masked in orange; the street lamps were bright. He looks at you, you stare. ‘Stop biting your nails!’ You laugh, both. So long ago. You remember it all.
The song ends.
You listen. You close your eyes – you are there. ‘Could I have this kiss forever?’ You lean towards each other. Your lips unite. You kiss, smiling. You’re young. Careless, but carefree.
