Yesterday she was learning to ride a bicycle
delighting her father.

Yesterday she was a ballerina, pirouetting on her toes,
delighting her mother.

Yesterday she was a teenage beauty queen, parading in her swimsuit,
delighting her boyfriend.

I miss that town,
I miss the faces,
You can’t erase it
You can’t replace it.
I miss it now,
I can’t believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it.

If I could I relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It’s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It’s hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
Every time I do it makes me…
