Lyrics

When I Was Six (And You Were Four)
Amy Fairchild, So Fair Music/BMI

Oh, we had fun
Running through fields in the sun
As the light would fade to pink
We could see her standing at the kitchen sink

And oh, how we grew
Up and out, over into
Strangers with the same last name
Longing for our home again

There’s nothing I can do or say
You gotta ride it out, find your own way
Back to the perfect shore
When I was six and you were four

Time just beat you down
Aren’t you tired of carrying it around?
Like an ancient meteorite
It takes so long to get the light

So, let’s go back
To those fields of thyme and lilac
And the river we’d watch rise
With wild and innocent eyes

There’s nothing I can do or say
You gotta ride it out, find your own way
To the boy inside the candy store
When I was six and you were four

There’s nothing I can do or say
You gotta ride it out, find your own way
To all the times she waited at the door
When I was six and you were four
When I was six and you were four
