lyrics

My old man says he’s moving on; the house is up for sale
His bags are packed, it’s time at last to hit the dusty trail
He’s coming out to Colorado, leaving it behind
He says I ought to come back home and see it one last time

Oh, the old wood door and the hardwood floor
And the landing by the stairs
The dim lit hall and the bedroom walls
That never felt so bare

Touchdown hometown safe and sound, my feet are on the ground
My head’s still swimming in the clouds; it never made it down
A yellow porchlight guides us home, a beacon through the dark
And when we step inside, I feel a flutter in my heart

Oh, the old wood door and the hardwood floor
And the landing by the stairs
The dim lit hall and the bedroom walls
That never felt so bare

Daybreak comes and wakes me from the sleep I barely knew
A hazy shade of golden light, the sky a baby blue
I know this bed, this comforter I’ve held since I was small
And for the first time in my life, I wish I’d never left at all

Oh, the old wood door and the hardwood floor
And the landing by the stairs
The dim lit hall and the bedroom walls
That never felt so bare

This place was safety, love, and strength, and it held my secrets, too
But now, it’s time to go; it’s time to leave this empty room

My old man’s hands are shaking as he locks it one last time
He holds me in the driveway and I struggle not to cry
The memories we made inside, the lessons that we learned
It’s someone else’s time to know; it’s someone else’s turn
