lyrics

There I am in pigtails, watching you so close/hanging up the clothes on the line out back/and I remember sunshine, and the smell of rain/not one single stain left on the front or the back

and it...looks like I'm looking up to you///

There I am sitting in the front row pew/And I'm watching you sing your song for the crowd/and I sit there smiling, glad to hear you sing/imagining it's me and I seem so proud

and it...looks like I'm looking up to you///

but the years have made my eyes turn down/I no longer see you where the crown/that I used to see and it makes me so sad

One day, when I'm older and it's too late, I'll see/it was mostly me, it was mostly me/and maybe I'll forgive you for all your faults instead of/placing on your head the blame for all of mine/maybe I'll remember how you held my hand/and, that just like sand slips through our fingers so does time

and I hope I'll be looking up to you///
