I was sittin' on the back porch in my mama's arms
staring out into the silence of the stars
wishing hard for things to come
to grow up and be someone
to be anywhere than where I was

always reaching out for something I could never have
always feeling discontent and incomplete

but I was loved
all along
I had joy, I had peace
it was here with me
all along
all along

we were singing to the beatles on the radio
we were driving with the windows all rolled down
eating french fries in the car
money was tight and times were hard
but I'd give anything to be there now

I always thought that happiness was just around the bend
and everything I dreamed of was just out of reach

but I was loved
all along
I had joy, I had peace
it was here with me
all along
all along
