lyrics

When I was a child
I spoke like an old man
when I was older
I lived like a child

should my heart give praise
I will spend my days
making amends

fifteen years in a heartbeat
slips through my hands
it's those dreams I remember
and the diamond wedding band

good Lord help me now
can't be helped, anyhow
I still see her face

take these treasures in store
all this ransom, and more
I will give you my word
but it's cold comfort now

wish I'd never gotten lost
in a shoebox full of letters
all I see fades to black
as the past comes into focus

deep as words can weigh
there are no words to say
to make it up to you

I have tried to make
a home with you here
but you can't make forget
the dreams disappear

should my heart give praise
I will spend my days
making amends

take these treasures in store
all this ransom, and more
I will give you my word
but it's cold comfort now
