lyrics

It's strange to think how many times I've walked in through this door
As my hand falls to the light switch and I step onto the floor
Outside the world is rushing by but I swear time stood still
In this house, just as I remember and as I always will

I spent a childhood here
Sped through the magic days of feel no fear
It was here that I buried my heart
In a pile of fallen leaves in the backyard
In the backyard

All the whispered secrets that never left this room
These walls are their keepers, silent as a tomb
The creaking stair and musty air bring back abandoned plans
Rocket ships and time machines we built with our own hands

I spent a childhood here
Sped through the magic days of feel no fear
It was here that I buried my heart
In a pile of fallen leaves in the backyard
In the backyard

Now a memory's the only thing left here that's mine
This house I once loved has been reclaimed by time
And it feels so wrong seeing these halls sit in silence

When I spent a childhood here
Sped through the magic days of feel no fear
It was here that I buried my heart
In a pile of fallen leaves of the backyard
In the backyard
in the back yard
In the backyard

Someday this driveway will be filled with someone's moving vans
And little feet will rush inside, her head full of plans
And as she spends her childhood here, I hope she takes her time
And as she grows I know she will bury her heart with mine
