lyrics

leaves from a branch on the sidewalk
a family tree that wasn’t watered enough
clipped and pruned in all the right ways
it offers shade for those overcast days
it blocks the neighbor’s view
and it blocks mine too

I was standing on the front porch
and you weren’t home
I keep your picture in a top drawer
and you wouldn’t even know

a burnt out patio lantern
and you thought nighttime wasn’t dark enough
you spent 23 years
staring at clocks, you’re trying to wind them up
you cut yourself on broken glass
you’re lost in the past
and you’ve lost everything
except for blurred photographs and baby’s clothing

I wish you would have stayed a while
now I will always be a middle child

I was standing on the front porch
and you weren’t home
I keep your picture in a top drawer
and you wouldn’t even know

I wish you would have stayed a while
now I will always be a middle child

standing on the front porch
and you weren’t home
I keep your picture in a top drawer
and you wouldn’t even know
