Lyrics

Four Minute Symphonies

There’s a quiet avenue far outside this town

Where the children all come out and play

And the moms and dads all smile

They’ll all be there for a while

They observe the tiny games safe in the shade

There are memories buried there deep beneath the ground

Tied up in the long roots of the trees

It’s been five long years

Since we said goodbye

And wondered if we’d ever meet again

We had comedies and tragedies

And these four minute symphonies

Though they were written long before

And we don’t live here anymore

The melodies and memories remain

Sing a song that makes me weep the tears of yesterdays

Sing a song that stands the test of time

And I’ll see you there again

With a smile on your face

And I’ll remember how it felt to let go

Of those comedies and tragedies

And these four minute symphonies

Even though we’ve all moved on

I still love to sing along

And reflect on how things came to be this way

There’s a little girl outside with sadness in her eyes

Staring down the road that leaves this town

Someday soon she’ll leave this place

Run far, far away

Never forgetting the events that paved her way

All the comedies and tragedies

And these four minute symphonies

Take them down off of the shelf

Let us relive what went before

We’ll dance the way we did when we were young
