This song is all nostalgia all the time. Years are stacking up, and social media can sometimes instigate the need to document everything so nothing is forgotten. This song is a tribute to those people and memories that have escaped us, but are part of a cumulative build of our character. There's comfort in that. 

Lyrics 
Word for word we may never remember
Don't be alarmed, I know how we felt
And we know who we are

Calibrating to the pace of the change
It seems gradual until it grabs a hold and all that remains
Are questions about these conversations
A central accusation: are we picking up or are we dropping off?

Word for word we may never remember
Don't be alarmed, I know how we felt
And we know who we are

While I'm waiting for the next thing to learn
An accident, a stroke of luck, or fact just inferred
We're family, with blood as thick as bricks
That I'll send out with timestamps
So I know it's good before I know it's gone

Word for word we may never remember
Don't be alarmed, I know how we felt
And we know who we are, we know who we are
Turn for turn we may never remember
Directions lost
But we can still recall the flavor of it all
Tastes like we belong

I've got to give credit to where credit's due
To friends like you, that remind me of optimism and positives hidden in negatives
Eyeballing the levels and singing it by ear
Impossible to retrace the steps that got us here
Reciting this from heart might get too hard
But I'll never be that far from where I stand
