lyrics

He so old today he tried

To remember how it felt to be five

And a half at the edge of a sandbox
Shipwrecks, castles, and warlocks

Secretly hoping for chickenpox

So you could stay in home from school

Wouldn’t that be cool

And you wouldn’t have to get it when you’re older

He so old today he thought about

All that stuff he shouldn’ta bought
Like that shitty wind-up radio
Nothing like the one he made in ’42
With his dad, a 1st world war veteran
Or that sinister cat
Why did I buy that

I was right, it didn’t make me happy

There came a time when he saw his life as he grew older

As pictures laid out in the dust

Put em all together one stitch at a time

A little out of line saying

Can you remember that day

There were thirteen crows on our apple tree
You said, “Tell me whatca think about that”

He so old he looked around

Imagining his world as upside-down
Books falling onto the ceiling

Huge step over the doorframe

A daughter who would never say his name
A son who wouldn’t call

Winter walking at the mall

Lucky that’s not now it happened

He so old he took my hand

Said, “Hunny, I’ll have you understand”
There’s only two ways in this world to be
You’ve got to be kind and you’ve got to be free
I didn’t always do that so take it from me

I have no complaints

I’ll take it up with the Saints

If in the end they let me into Heaven
