about

This is a song about finding the rhythm again after a long time without it. Just like speedrunning platform games or falling in love.

lyrics

I remember when I was younger
Me and my sister, we used to speedrun
Super Mario World and Aladdin
All the moves ingrained in our fingers
Sitting with a bowl of chips,
And an issue of Nintendo Power
Now 20-something odd years later
We still beat it in half an hour

It comes back to me
Like
Muscle memory
I can feel it
Coming back to me
Muscle memory

Now that I’m older, I find I’ve lost
The taste for things that I just say I’m over
Like emotions, or attachments,
Or like anything I can’t control
Of course that means that you would come
And suddenly I can remember feeling
Hold down Y and then you run
I still got it, yeah, it’s in my fingers

It comes back to me
Like
Muscle memory
I can feel it
Coming back to me
Muscle memory

It comes back to me
Like
Muscle memory
I can feel it
Coming back to me
Muscle memory

It comes back to me
Like
Muscle memory
I can feel it
Coming back to me
Muscle memory

It comes back to me
Muscle memory
I can feel it
Coming back to me
Muscle memory
