Mama closes the door,
Leads the way down the stairs from the second floor
and I follow along

Climbing into the van
Mama turns on the heat but it blows cold air
Until it come on

She says "we ain't going to school
Even though that's we said we were gonna do.
I've been waiting for you!"

Drive down to grandma's house,
Pick up Uncle Peter and drop him back off,
Now we're off to the mall

We play hide and go seek,
pose like mannequins, get fast food as a treat
Ain't life sweet?

When did we become so old and afraid?
Oh and how did those days get so far away?
Sometimes I wake up all alone in my room
And I pray to the lord, "if you ask me to, I'll keep waiting for you"

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Singing "Suite Judy Blue Eyes" at the top of our lungs
Remember that?

Dad pretends to lose his keys,
Tells us to keep looking down at the street all the way to Dairy Queen

All the little things, all the big surprises
All the bright starbursts inside our eyes
On the way home, I followed the moon
and it smiled down onto our Honda's roof
And said, "I've been waiting for you!"
