Lyrics

here we are don’t you forget me
for anything you need im only a phone call away
the time has come i know you are ready
my beautiful baby
has left home today
i watch you go as i stand at the doorway with visions of old days
you’re laughing and running through the yard
oh i come inside but everything is different
ooooo this heartbreak and silence
has caught me off guard
and i still see you on your first day of school
that oversized backpack on you
new shoes to take on the world
you walked so proud right through those steel doors
when i couldn’t stay anymore
you held on and wouldnt let go
now here i am its so hard to let go
i still hear the echos
of little feet on the floor
oh and i rock alone in this oversized chair
oooh the one that we shared for years
like so many things you long outgrew
and i still see you on your first day of school
that oversized backpack on you
with new shoes to take on the world
you walked so proud right through those school doors
when i couldn’t stay anymore
you held me and wouldnt let go
oh you needed me to tie your shoes
and kiss away the blues
and hold you when you cried
oh who will be there to protect you
this world can be so cruel
such trusting wide eyes
but i still see you on your first day of school
that oversized backpack on you
with new shoes to take on the world
