I’ve seen the fields on the first day of summer
I’ve seen winter’s white blanket on Christmas day
I’ve seen the sun race upward with the moon chasing after
to bring all its silence and take the colors away
Lay me down where the grass grows so high
Give me some wings, it’s my turn to fly
All I ever asked for your love
Is remember to remember me when I am gone.
I’ve seen the faces of children in laughter
I’ve given away what I have left to share
I’ve smelled the flowers still in the garden
I’ve kissed a girl with them in her hair
I’ve tasted the morning’s first cup of coffee
I’ve roamed as far as I wanted to roam
I’m finally here right on the Lord’s highway
You can catch up to me later, and then we’ll go home.
