Im five years old its getting cold
ive got my big coat on
i hear your laugh and look up smiling at you
i run and run
past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides
look now the sky is gold
i hug your legs and fall asleep
on the way home

i dont know why all the trees change in the fall
i know your not scared of anything at all
dont know if snow whites house is near or far away
but i know i had the best day with you today


im thirteen now and dont know how my friends
could be so mean
i come home crying and you hold me tight
and grab the keys
and we drive and drive until we found a town
far enough away
and we talk and window shop til i forgotten
all their names

i dont know who im gonna talk to now at school
but i know im laughing
on the car ride home with you
dont know how long its gonna take to feel okay
but i know i had the best day with you today

i have an excellent father
his strength is making me stronger
gods smiles on my little brother
inside and out hes better than i am

i grew up in a pretty house and i had space to run
and i
had
the best days with you

there is a video i found from back when i was three
you set up a paint set in the kitchen
and your talking to me
its the age of princesses and pirate ships
and the seven dwarves
my daddys smart and
your the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

now i know why all the trees change in the fall
i know you were by my side even when i was wrong
and i love you for giving me your eyes
staying back and watching me shine
and i didnt know if you knew
but im taking the chance to say
that i had the best day with you
today.
