Hundred miles away
Memories saved
That covered bridge
Where our names are still engraved
You turn to go
I turn to leave
And you turn to gold
And I turn to leaves
In the cool shade
Of a sycamore tree
I Paint a perfect portrait
Of how I used to be
When I'm alone
My mind is slow
You can be the smiling face on a scarecrow

But I know myself
I can't be like that
I can't help myself I will always cry
Keep my frown in a jar on the shelf
And put on my favorite smile
So far away
And my eyes stay, dry

In my head
Is all I want to think about
When I stop and stare
I've got to learn to live without
It'll be easier in the end
When I've already lost a lover
I can't learn to lose a friend


- Chorus -


Under a stone in the back I've grown
A flower for you dear
A flower that's so beautiful
May now be tellin' how I feel
So I water It everyday
And I rip out every weed
How can you think I would let it wilt
When it was built from just a seed
