Where do I start?
I've been meaning to say something that's long overdue
I have been taking my time
Every new year I think about tracking you down
When the snow melts
Not again until autumn rolls around

Would it be too unexpected to hear from me again
For the first time?
Just enough to say I'm doing alright

I think I owe you one for this
A brief history of everywhere I've been
Wherever you are now, it goes on and on

What have I got?
It's easy to see
Just look at all of my friends
They have been with me for so long
My family will always welcome me home
From the road
They say I've made them all so proud
For 24 years now

Would you find it too intrusive
To ask for just five minutes of your time?
Just enough to say I'm doing alright

I think I owe you one for this
A brief history of everywhere I've been
Wherever you are now it goes on and on
I think I owe you one for this
Wherever love is found
It will cross distances
Where you are now
It goes on and on

Hold back emotion
And just let it happen
I'll let the stereo play
While I wait for your reaction

It's not a likeness that I'm searching for
Or a reconnection
More an exchange of words
Unlike an explanation
I'll say, "Can you see the stars?
I see them every night
Above the wind and rain
Below those city lights."

You won't have to say a word
I wouldn't trade this for the world
