North Webster, IN USA
How did the pond get inside of the building?
I really would like to know
It's funny enough that it's the end of December
But there doesn't seem to be any snow.
More birds are flying over my head
Than I've ever seen before in my life
They don't seem to realize the world is out there
While they are stuck inside.
People got mad when our convoy went through
Although it was for them
We just laughed and said 'you'll see,
The further we get ahead'.
I thought the many phone books might be
The link to my hidden past
And maybe answer so many questions
I had never had the nerve to ask.
Then when I thought I had found it
I purposely left it behind
I guess I like the mystery
Of the father I may never find.
Although the water was cold we braved it still
And our hearts, they became ice
We never would be quite the same again
After we left paradise.
We only wanted to enjoy our time
We never meant any harm
But somehow everything got twisted
And they ruthlessly stole our charm.
It took awhile to heal the hurt
I've always been taught to forgive
And although I've been shot many sore times
I always remember to live.
