lyrics

Brought to the new world
You, raised from a seed
You grew in my fields
Your roots digging deep

Soon picked up your feet
To explore in my woods
Seemed you’d never stay
Maybe you never should

(Mammoth road, Town Common, Lion’s Hall, Library.
August heat, Old Home Days, Fireworks, Grand parade)

The sun on your face
Is a slow ticking clock
(Tire dragon, Paws or Tails, Rocket ships, Class upstairs)
You’re afraid to be trapped here
When the time stops
(Nutfield Store, kick the can, Beaver Lake, Rec Program)

My borders are thin,
They couldn’t contain
(LAFA Fields, Rec Courts fights, Skateboard park, Playground rights)
You crossed them to seek
What I couldn’t explain
(Jump for Heart, Gym classes, Town Meeting, School dances)

When you’ve forgotten this, my heart
When you pretend not to have loved
I will still wait for you, as I have always done
You can still come back to reclaim what you have lost

Years pass I still wonder
If you will come back
(Marching band, football games, pep rally, tailgating)
To reclaim what you lost
When you picked up and left
(Apple trees, orchard view, farmer’s tan, Harvest moon)

But when your sun sets
I’ll welcome you home
(Bonfire night, sledding hill, hot cider, Mack’s Apples)
May you rest in my fields
Where you once had grown

I will still wait for you, as I have always done
You can still come back to reclaim what you have lost
