Listen & Lyrics: Ryan Hurd’s ‘Every Other Memory’

By  | 

Ryan Hurd debuted his latest track “Every Other Memory.” He co-wrote the song alongside Nathan Spicer and Cole Taylor.

“I love being a songwriter in Nashville,” Ryan said. “I love getting to put out music to fans. This round of recording was really interesting. It just felt like each tune was sort of epic in its own way. And, “Every Over Memory” just felt like such a nostalgic track. I remember writing it and thinking ‘Man there’s just so much cool cadence here’ and just the way the words came out and it just felt like each picture was really amazing. And, it’s so cool because it feels like each line of the song feels like an emoji. It’s like a feeling and it’s a picture that you can just really grab on to. So, I hope you like it. This is my new tune ‘Every Over Memory.'”

 

Ryan Hurd’s “Every Other Memory” Lyrics

I still smell the smoke from

The Fourth of July fireworks

And I still feel the kick drum

Front row at the concert

After Talladega

It’s safe to say you stick around

 

We were both drunk at the party

When I told you that I loved you

You laughed like I was crazy

But I swear, girl that’s when I knew

What we had

Looking back on it right now

 

That last call first kiss never left my mind

That old school Springsteen gets me every time

And when I see that leather jacket

I think about how you had it

Wrapped around your shoulder

That whole October

And that sunset, barefoot, fire on the beach

I can still feel your hands all over me

And when the sky lights up

Girl, it’s your shade of blue

‘Cause every other memory

Every other memory is you

 

Girl, you’re every other turn down

Every back road in my head

And even though it’s over

You’re still playing hard to forget

Close my eyes and there you are

Still underneath the stars

 

‘Cause that last call first kiss never left my mind

That old school Springsteen gets me every time

And when I see that leather jacket

I think about how you had it

Wrapped around your shoulder

That whole October

And that sunset, barefoot, fire on the beach

I can still feel your hands all over me

And when the sky lights up

Girl, it’s your shade of blue

‘Cause every other memory

Every other memory is you

 

Girl, it’s you

Every other memory

Is you and me

Wrapped up in the summer

There will never be another

Never be another

 

Like that last call first kiss never left my mind

And that old school Springsteen, it gets me every time

And when I see that leather jacket

I think about how you had it

Wrapped around your shoulder

That whole October

And that sunset, barefoot, fire on the beach

I can still feel your hands all over me

And when the sky lights up

Girl, it’s your shade of blue

‘Cause every other memory

Every other memory is you

 

Girl, it’s you

Every other memory

Is you and me

Tangled in the summer

There will never be another

Never be another

Like that last call first kiss
