Years (LP Version) - Beth Nielsen Chapman

I went home for Christmas

 

to the house that I grew up in

 

Going back was something

after all these years

 

I drove down Monterey street

 

and felt a little sadness

 

When I turned left on Laurel

and the house appeared

 

And I snuck up to that rocking chair

Where the winter sunlight slanted

on the screened-in porch

 

And I stared out past the shade tree

That my laughing daddy planted

on the day that I was born

 

And I let time go by so slow

 

And I made every moment last

 

And I thought about years

 

How they take so long

 

And they go so fast

 

Across the street the Randol's oldest daughter

must have come home

 

Her two boys built a snowman

by the backyard swings

 

I thought of old man Randol

and his Christmas decorations

 

And how he used to leave them up

'til early spring

 

And I thought of all the summers

That I paced that porch and swore

I'd die of boredom there

 

And I thought of what I'd give to

feel another summer linger

Where a day feels like a year

 

And I let time go by so slow

 

And I made every moment last

 

And I thought about years

 

How they take so long

 

And they go so fast

 

Then the door flew open,

 

and my mother's voice was laughing

 

As she called back to my daddy,

"Come and look who's here"

 

And I thought about years
