lyrics

When I was eight years old
I'd spend all day catching toads
To throw them in the river
Just throw them in the river

My mother told me boy
Don't let these people tell
You that you won't be nothin'
You'll always be my baby

I think about her some
Being her youngest son
And whether not I'm living
Up to the things I could be

I think about her some
Laying out in the sun
Telling me to be careful
Sorry I wasn't careful

The further that we run
We run away together
The less I can remember
The less I can remember

And that's exactly how
I wanted it to work
This day will last forever
Today will last forever

You lost your wedding ring
I told you not to worry
My mother pawned her's only
To pay rent one December

You lost your wedding ring
And now you're crying only
This day won't last forever
That's why I don't remember
