When I was born they said I could have died.
My father did weep and my mother, she cried.
Although my lungs were withered inside,
A two pound boy was alive.

Many months later I was taken home,
To a nice little house where I mended my bones.
I would sit in the tree that once bordered the road,
Watch the world as it turned so slow.

Once I was seven we packed up our things,
And moved to PA where the setting sun brings,
The beauty of life to the valleys and springs,
And the sound of the partridge does ring.

As I grew older my life doubled in size,
The tops of the hills arched their backs towards the skies.
‘Cause nature you know, does sink and does rise,
Like the ocean, so old and so wise.

I remember when I played my first show,
The music pulsated with those in the front row.
Spring claimed the air as the clouds hung so low,
“In a year, a year or so”.

Sometimes when I lie awake late at night,
I watch the shadows that trickle from the house light.
The patterns move slow like those born without sight,
When you sleep you life seems so bright.

Now that I’ve grown up, I’ll soon leave my home,
And pack up the pictures of the ones I did know.
I’ll never forget all the places I roamed,
Pennsylvania, the love you have shown.

I do not know if God is real or a lie,
But oh well, I thank God I’m alive.
