I’ve been sitting here blowing out the same old tune
It rattles me. I could sing this all day through now
I’m just sitting here on this road

I’m just taking time watching how our loved ones grow
Like colours change as the clouds blow to and fro now
I’m just sitting here on this road

He’ll be a man who grows
She’ll need a loving soul
And I’ll be...sitting here on this road

There’s no need to move, here’s the library pick and choose
It’s all to see, swimming in a sea of lives lived
I’m just sitting here on this road

There’s a face who could had been the sunshine in your life
There’s one who could have ended crying by your side now
I’m just sitting here on this road

He’ll fall and carry on
She’ll fail but still be strong
And I’ll be sitting here on this road

Come back and let us know
How much your world has grown
And I’ll be sitting here asking
Maybe I should have moved
Flown out and seen the world
But I’ve been happy just on this road

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
