  1. Back Then

When we're kids, we can't imagine how things might change when we grow up. The world changes and grows, but so do we.

Lyrics

Driving through my old hometown
I see my childhood house is gone
Just another victim of
A world that’s moving on

But as I step out on the sidewalk
I see my big old maple tree
And carved into the trunk
Are the names of you and me

That day, we made a promise
To forever be a pair
And I even made a wedding ring
Out of twigs for you to wear

But as months and years went slowly by
And the world changed and grew
We didn’t know it at the time
but we were changing, too

Back then, we were kids without a worry
We never gave a thought to how and when
And life was sweet and simple
Like a gently falling rain
But we were different, way back then

In our senior year of high school
My family moved away
We promised we would keep in contact
Writing every day

But time went on and
Letters got few and far between
Until we both lost touch and
Life was just an old routine

Back then, we were kids without a worry
We never gave a thought to how or when
And life was sweet and simple
Like a gently falling rain
But we were different, way back then

People come into our lives
And only God knows why
Maybe it’s to teach us love
As we’re passing through this life

And then our class reunion
Our eyes met across the room
We talked about the good old days
How it ended all too soon

You told me you’d been married
And I said, “So was I”
Then we laughed and wondered
How we let so many years go by

And suddenly, we were back
Beside that big old maple tree
Holding hands and dreaming dreams
About how our lives would be

Then from your purse, you took
A little box of velvet blue
And in it was the wedding ring
Of twigs I made for you

Back then, we were kids without a worry
We never gave a thought to how or when
But the Good Lord has a way of making
miracles come true
‘Cause you’re my miracle,
Sweet, sweet miracle
From way back then
