You made footprints on mountains
You made a change in an old dirt
We showered each other what we're good at
We taught each other self worth
We yelled so loudly that we hurt each other's ears
And that summer we all made a pact to face our fear
And that night I met your dad and your older brother
And I wish I could've been there to have met your mother
And I wish you could've been there to have met my father
When he wasn't always in pain or some doctor's new project
It's just everything is always a countdown
Let's take time away
Lately I've been worried I've been spending my life only living part of it
I've been spending so much time in the future I forgot about the present
I wanna go back to when I was young and throwing rocks into ponds I didn't own
I wanna go back to your baby powder feet and you sweaty sweaty summer clothes
If everything is always a countdown
Then I wanna take time away
Am I moving way too fast now
Or am I trailing at a snail's pace
I heard my favorite song but I couldn't understand the sound
I've been running under thunder storms
Just waiting for it to rain down
It's your worn bed sheets
Its your warm pillow
I want to forever follow
Tell me where does your shadow go?
If everything is always a countdown
I want to take back today
