lyrics

The sights and sounds that fell all around your feet
(red white and blue, know everything true)
All turn to gold, line the sidewalks of your street
(people come and go, where to no one knows)
The summer sun will set, won’t stay too long
(don’t hide your eyes, greet the world outside)
So waste your breath and fill your lungs with songs
(songs you used to know, the ones your daddy showed you)

Kiss your wrist and ask no one the time
Stay up late getting drunk off that Dandelion Wine

Now your shoes all worn, your shirt all tucked in safe
(tucked down inside, still got nothing right)
Your hands all cracked, can’t help but show their age
(worn to the bone, spent polishing stones)
You showed up small but you grew too tall to walk
(bent and afraid, everything has changed)
Now you curse the kids that hang around your block
(all they do is talk, the ones that time forgot)

Check your wrist and ask someone the time
Can’t remember getting drunk off that Dandelion Wine
