lyrics

I want to go back to the old house now that we’re older
It isn’t the same now that it’s all been painted over
But I still want to see the shapes
That those old walls and windows used to make

Do you remember when we went to the third floor
And sat on the carpet as the light poured through the windows
Would the dust behind your hair
Still glow as brightly in the sun?

All our lives are changing but I want to believe
It’s still as real as we
And every hour that passes through me
Every single thing I’ve seen remains somewhere
And you are always there

So where are the rivers that we’d swim when we were younger?
And where are the winters that our memory sleeps under?
Where are our grandfather’s children
And the songs our mothers gave us?
I can hear you singing
If I listen close enough at night

All our lives are changing but I want to believe
It’s still as real as we
And every hour that passes through me
Every single thing I’ve seen remains somewhere

And I don’t want to change so when I’m
Home again
I will pretend to fall asleep
I want to stay right here so if you find me
Home again
I will pretend that I’m asleep
Don’t wake me up

I can hear you singing if I listen close enough at night yes
I can hear you singing if I listen
