lyrics

Well I don't know where all the time has gone
I've still got my bags packed, I'm still moving on
I hear you own your home now, you just got a new car
I'm so proud of you girl, I always knew you'd go far

But I never thought we'd grow so far apart, it breaks my heart

We used to laugh at your mama writing country songs
We sang rock and roll, thought we were cool
We used to think that we owned that town
and now we never go back there no more

Tell me that you're doing alright in the big city now girl
Tell me that you're doing just fine
And tell me that the man you married back when you were just 21
Tell me that he still treats you right

When the older boys used to push us around trying to pick a fight
We'd wait for your big brothers to come home and set things right
We knew every short cut, we knew our way around
When we hid away from the world we were never found

But I never thought we'd grow so far apart, it breaks my heart

We used to laugh at your mama writing country songs
We sang rock and roll, thought we were cool
We used to think that we owned that town
and now we never go back there no more

Tell me that you're doing alright in the big city now girl
Tell me that you're doing just fine
And tell me that the man you married back when you were just 21
Tell me that he still treats you right

Well the days roll on and the years go by
We don't see each other now and we don't ask why
Life took you in one direction, me another way
Now we try to have a conversation but we don't know what to say

I never thought we'd grow so far apart, it breaks my heart...
