Day 6: Would Not Trade

This is the about the time one might get homesick.

Song Story

Lyrics

Take my hand
Hold it in your warm hand
And I’ll hold onto you
As the winter comes
This is not
Exactly what we had planned
But time moves slowly love
And we’re still here where we’re from

And we’re still here where we’re from

Sweeping pine
Needles from the wood floor
Come January
It’s the worst time of the year
Oh, we got towels stuffed
Underneath the front door
To keep the cold out
For me and you and Jack and Lu in here

I would not trade
I would not trade

We could be
Out there in some beach house
The kids come running in
With handfuls full of sand
Or maybe not
Maybe we are travellers
We got no family yet
We got all of the time in the world

With our backpacks worn right through
Baby, me and you
Could have wound up somewhere better
Than this old place
She was built in ‘55
But we’re keeping her alive
Through a decade’s worth of winters
While we’re growing strong as timbers

Would not trade
I would not trade

It’s easy to say
