I saw roses choking in the grass, flaking paint and a broken window pane.
The old man from the house across the street asked, "How's it goin'?" and I said "Fine."
All the birds that sang their pretty songs arenāt singing like they did when we were here.
A mailbox barely standing by the driveway, I can almost read the name.
But the expression on his face would make me think, that he could almost read my mind.
'Cause thereās no happiness in music if somebody isn't close enough to here.
A swing-set and forgotten toys where little girls and boys played happy games
That Johnson boy from down the road was askinā if the kids could come and play
I picked a ragged daisy from itās home out in the corner the yard.
Everything I ever cared about is gone now,  but the memory still remains.
Lord I wish I could have told him yes, but I just  said, "I guess no, not today."
"She loves me - She loves me not," Now I don't have to wonder anymore.

I just came home to count the memories, that I've been counting in my mind
I just came home to count the memories, of a better day and time.

(Last time)

I guess it's time to say good-bye.
