I am from Virginia, it's a part of who I am.
On my good days I think that I'll never leave,
On the bad ones I feel fenced in.
Sometimes I think about making a change, but at the end of the day,
I have what I have, I am where I am, I suppose I'll stay.
But if you go, I'll carry you with my whole heart.
And if you stay, I'll bury you with my old heart.
I remember golden Sundays, I guess you could say I used to be well lit.
Now I tend a tired fire, and though the room goes dim, I can see you're over this.
Changing together is never easy, you gotta cut some slack.
When you're knocking down locked doors to free up what you've been holding back.
Know that I got your back
You're my family
If you need me,
Just give me a ring.
I remember the sun-soaked foyer, when I caught you, babe, in my view-finder.
With your school books open, all your hair draped over your right shoulder,
Overlooking the sculpture garden.
You were a reminder that I was wearing blinders.
I was getting bitter, long before my age.
Hey, what can I say? I'm an old soul set in my ways.
Maybe I'll change for you someday.
