Lyrics:I Just Came Home To Count The Memories

I saw roses choking in the grass
Flaking paint a
broken windowpane
A mailbox barely standin’ by the driveway
I can almost see
the name
A swing set and forgotten toys
Where little boys and girls played happy
games
Everything I gave a damn about is gone
But all the memories still remain

The
old man from the house across the street
Asked how’s it going and I said
fine
The expression on his face would make me think
That he could almost read my
mind
That Johnson boy from down the road was asking if
The kids could come and
play
Lord, I wish I could have told him yes, but I
Just said I guess son, not
today

I just came home to count the memories
That I’ve been counting in my
mind
I just came home to count the memories
Of a better day and time

The birds that
sang their pretty songs
Aren’t singing like they did when you were
here
‘Cause there’s no happiness in music
If somebody
isn’t close enough to hear
I picked a ragged daisy from its home
Out in the
corner of the yard
She loves me, she loves me not
Now I don’t have to wonder
anymore

I just came home to count the memories
That I’ve been counting in
my mind
I just came home to count the memories
I guess it’s time to say goodbye
