about

This song is about my own journey.

lyrics

Chorus
IT’S A LONG JOURNEY, A WONDROUS LIFE
BEING ME, MYSELF, BEING A WIFE
BEING A MOTHER TO THESE BEAUTIFUL KIDS
A JOURNEY . . . THAT’S WHAT IT IS

Verse 1
YOU TOOK MY HAND ON THE SANDY PATH
YOU HELPED ME UP TO THE WAVING GRASS
BY THE OCEAN WAVES IN THE SALTY AIR
YOU PUT A FLOWER IN MY HAIR

to chorus

Verse 2
OUR LITTLE ONES CLIMBED IN YOUR LAP
YOU WALKED WITH BABIES ON YOUR BACK
STORYBOOKS AND WOODLAND PATHS
SANDCASTLES AND BUBBLE BATHS

to chorus

Verse 3
I HELPED THEM LEARN TO TIE THEIR SHOES
YOU WORKED THREE JOBS AND READ THE NEWS
THEY LEARNED TO COUNT, TO SPELL, TO SING
I LEARNED WITH THEM SO MANY THINGS

Bridge
AS TIME SPILLS OUT IN MOMENTS
AS WE WALK ALONG THE WAY
WE DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOING
BUT WE’RE GETTING THERE—
EACH AND EVERY DAY

Music Interlude

Ending
FIRST SMILE, FIRST STEP – IT NEVER GETS OLD
GRANDCHILDREN ARE LIKE GLITTERING GOLD
ANOTHER MIND, ANOTHER HEART
ANOTHER CHILD, A BRAND NEW START

to chorus
