The smell of trees can only be that way
On a sunny day, floating through the open window
To the cool inside where we lay side by side

How can anything we feel ever mean so much
As a summer love?
How can anything we need ever get in touch
With the meaning of

A whole life waiting, wishing suddenly
That it's going to be the real thing
Or separating, try your luck again
It's just part of the adventure

Holy cow, you do it to me now
The soundtrack to a generation
Oh wow, you're getting to me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Another tune before the light has gone
And we'll be on our way
The sounds and smells will always linger on
They're in my heart today

We feel so lucky then the world's a massive place
But we run into each other
Just one small happening an accident of fate
Or the work of co-conspirators?
But if we knew what could it do to help us now?

Holy cow, you do it to me now
The soundtrack to a generation
Anyhow, just give it to me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Oh wow, you really get me now
The soundtrack to a generation
Holy cow, you're getting to me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Years have gone on in between
But all I knew at seventeen is all I know now
Through times of joy and suffering
The music flavors everything that's all I know now

Holy cow, you do it to me now
The soundtrack to a generation
Oh wow, you really get me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Anyhow, just give it to me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Just give it, you're getting, you do it, you really got me now
The soundtrack to a generation
Just give it, you're getting, you do it, you really got me now
The soundtrack to a generation

Oh wow, you really get me now
The soundtrack to a generation
