Big Screen

Every single day, in every little town
The kids are growing stronger, they're leaving the playground

I've been growing taller, I've been growing fast
I've waited my whole life, to ride my bike down the street alone
Alone- alone- alone

Every pretty girl and all the handsome boys
Get themselves all dress up and turn into each other's toys

I've waited patiently for that first dance
A hand around my waist and your breath on my neck
On my neck- my neck- my neck

(Chorus) Why are all these little moments, playing back, on the big screen, in my memory

Every year they flock to the bubble towns
to get an education without mom and dad around

I unload all my stuff into a strangers room
Please don't my things, I'm not so sure how I feel yet
About you- about you- about you

Every run down house on every quiet street
Lost behind the ivy, it could really use some TLC

And I know you're on board
With just a few coats of paint and we'll give this home a family
Someone new to shelter and to protect
Protect- protect- protect

(Chorus) Why are all these little moments, playing back, on the big screen, in my memory

As I lay me down to sleep
With my love by my side
The ceiling fan spins
And I feel so blessed that I could cry

Every dinner we have made
And every song we've sung
I close my eyes now
Because we've only just begun
