lyrics

I grew up in Wellesley Hills
on a beat-up old pig farm
There wasn’t much to keep us fed
but even still it had its charms
I lost my first love to the war
not a bullet on the ground
He was just 1000 miles from home
when his plane came crashing down

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars

My second wedding bells did ring
children followed like they do
But cancer took my firstborn girl
then God took her daddy, too
I raised five kids all in the same house
I never made it to Italy
Now they tell me I must move out
‘cause they can’t take care of me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars

Hit this light switch on your way out
there’s nothing more for me to see
I should be dying any day now
if it were up to me
I wear the same clothes every day now
just sit and stare at the TV
I had them save my best blue dress
for when they bury me

And I don’t know where the time goes
or how I ever got this far
Guess there’s no point in keeping count
of all the scars
