Hey son, time to move again
but it’s the only home I’ve known and all I know is here
You’ll like your grandparents and that big house and the van will move all
your stuff to our new home.
Say goodbye to your friends, you’ll make new ones,
because no one ever stays in Colorado Springs
The house got sold, the van came and went, but it left behind my red wagon.
More than 35 years later, it’s still someone else’s home
and I still haven’t found a place of my own
Parents and Grandparents are now long gone
and the little sister doesn’t even remember that old home anymore
but then the movers also forgot about the red wagon.
And now the present seems lost with failures abounding
and everyone gone as well as the sled and bear and red wagon.
It seems I’m trapped in the past but stuck in the future
wandering the streets I’ve known all my life
but now no one there knows me
The faces and storefronts are different
but any chance I have of returning home is as gone as that red wagon.
