I would take a walk back to all the slides and swings,
everywhere we used to play,
A penny for your thoughts, or a million for the dreams and things that keep a
body up at night…
+++ on the inside… we are strangers…
+++ who knows just how strange?
+++ on the outside… now we walk away…
+++ watch the colors change..

I have seen you grow up and out and on your way,
past the ways I think of you,
learned to let you go anyplace there’re things to see
take a look around for me…
+++ on the inside… we are strangers…
+++ who knows just how strange?
+++ on the outside… now we walk away…
+++ watch the colors change..

So don’t forget to cry, don’t forget to laugh out loud
anytime you think of me,
And I won’t forget to write with my finger on a windowpane,
melting frost to spell your name…
+++ on the inside… we are strangers…
+++ who knows just how strange?
+++ on the outside… now we walk away…
+++ watch the colors change…

spring to summer, fall to winter, all the days of your life…
