Two kids are on a swingset
outside by me and you
and I can't quite place where I placed my keys
the sun is setting, the moon is bright tonight
and I love the shadow our hands cast by the trees

The leaves don't fall anymore
'cause it's summer, thank God for that
and I could run away, I've got legs for that
but I've got a home now and I like it here.

The birds outside my door
sing me to sleep, I'm sure
to thank them every night and keep in touch
with the friends I thought I lost
somehow I always find them where I left them
I'm beginning to think my parents were right all along.

I used to be scared of love, but now I keep it close
without it we'd all forget to breathe.

Fairly soon I want to move to a small house on the coast
just because the ocean's so pretty.

Like a flower petal lost
in the wind's relentless gust,
I've forgotten where I'm from but still have hope
that I'll find myself a new life
not too different from the old
where I'll laugh and get lost some more and we'll still have inside jokes
and I'll still be so forgetful
and we'll trade in all our money
for the simple things.

They say dreams are uncertain
I say lies are overrated
We should bury them and smile a little more
'cause if there's one thing I've learned from being young and insecure
it's you don't need no money to live and be happy
just find some friends and forget all the worst.
