Song Description

in this instance the memories were triggered by the smell of honeysuckle.

Story Behind the Song

When I was a child, honeysuckles lined the fence of our yard and several other yards on our block. In the summertime, the whole neighborhood smelled of honeysuckle..


Edgar Butch Barnette

Walking home from work one day
on a whim, I took a different way
Nothing really special on my mind
The smell of something dear to me
tickled my olfactories
and nudged some ancient memories
from another place in time

..of chasing frisbees in the park
playing hide and seek till after dark
and making silly noises with balloons
spitting watermelon seeds
catching snakes out in the weeds
and saturdays, get up and watch cartoons

Captured by that single smell
I was caught up in a magic spell
it only last a moment
was forgotten all too soon
Trying to find that shortcut home
I'd stumbled on the twilight zone
where the child locked up inside
still likes to play..
