The Best Day

Recommended Posts


I'm five years old

It's getting cold

I've 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 don't know why all the trees change in the fall

I know you're not scared of anything at all

Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away

But I know I had the best day

With you today


I'm thirteen now

And don't 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've found a town

Far enough away


And we talk

And window-shop

'Til I've forgotten all their names


I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school

I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you

Don't know how long it's 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

God smiles on my little brother

Inside and out he's 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 you're talking to me


It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs

And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world


And now I know why all the trees change in the fall

I know you were on my side even when I was wrong


And I love you for giving me your eyes

For staying back and watching me shine


And I didn't know if you knew

So I'm taking this chance to say

That I had the best day

With you today




Nunca encontrei nenhum artista com esta género de música, tão pessoal e "familiar". Esta e a mensagem "Never Grow Up"  que é "os teus pais também estão a crescer, lembra-te disso" sempre permaneceram comigo. :)

Gosto dessas mensagens. Quando somos mais novos não damos importância aos nossos pais, mas em Adulto tudo muda, ganhamos um carinho ainda maior e demonstramos, isto quando já moras sozinho e não precisas mais do dinheiro deles.
