Too young to know what I know
Too old to make new friends
That's what they're saying time and again
The bitterness of knowing
Knowing everything
But I chose nothing and that's where I've been
Showing up on Sunday's
The birds that fly away
Stuck beneath the table, I've followed the grade
Bought a cloud of memories
The memories of the pain
A teardrop for the shepherd that led me away

Letters from the woman
Tell me the score
More than any girl that I've offered up for
Silence in the back room
Under my floor
Spinning in the mirror the girl asks for more
Something more than nothing
And nothing more than this
Walked along beside me, she left with a kiss

And in the sun-filtered sky
We burn and we cry
Sit beside the runway and kiss her goodbye
She'll know what I know
And go where I go
She will stay in my heart when I have to go

When I have to go away

But I'd give up all that's coming
To see you wake up
To touch you in the morning and offer me up
Time is taking me away
There's nothing I can do
Home is where the heart is and mine lies with you
