about

An updated take on the very first song I ever recorded, which I have done at least three times. But no more!

lyrics

I can see your footprints but the grass is too short to mow
It's not the only thing I'm waiting for to grow
Like a sliver in the ocean
From the row boat's broken oar
It's not the only thing waiting on the ocean floor

If you were me you'd be losing touch
If you were me, you grew up too much

I can see the flowers by the window in the empty room
It's not the only thing I'm waiting for to bloom
Another swimmer in the ocean
And a treasure on the ocean floor
It's not the only thing we're all drowning for

If you were me you'd be losing touch
If you were me, you grew up too much

Don't you grow up
