lyrics

Just a little girl of merely four
Waiting patiently for you at the back door
But you're late for our date again
No you were not there to tuck me in

Now I'm flipping through the pages
Of my well worn family album
Hoping that you'll dance across my mind
I wish that you would linger longer
I wish you had spent a little more time

My hairs in curls and it's up in a great big bow
Here's to hoping you're the only one who knows
Watching squirrels at the Whitehall Inn they're
Harvesting their crops again
It's a great big world that I'm living in
It's filled with contradiction

Now I'm flipping through the pages
Of my well worn family album
Hoping that you'll dance across my mind
I wish that you would linger longer
I wish you had spent a little more time

But the weight is heavy on my fragile shoulders
and I think it's too much for me to bare
I'll always love you and I know I've told you so
But it's time I stop meeting you there

Just flipping through the pages
Of our well worn family album
Hoping that you'll dance into my life
I don't want you to linger any longer
here's to hoping I can leave this pain behind
I'm just hoping I can leave this pain behind
