Drive Through The Old Neighborhood

from THE OLD NEIGHBORHOOD by Stephen Bard

lyrics

The car was all ready as we put on our jackets for the drive
My dad had been steady but his hopes of seeing someone
Were still alive
I smiled as stories of his childhood began to arrive
As he told them I felt the feeling I felt when I was young

"There's Artie's house," he said to me with a smile.
"He's passed away now and I hadn't seen him in awhile.
We played in a band growing up in his mother's front den.
He played one hell of a smoking guitar even then."

We drove by his high school
I thought of old friends from the past
It's a funny and sad waste of time
Wondering why the time goes so fast

"I'm glad you're here," he said with a tear down his face
"Me too," I said, "It's great to finally see this place.
A memory is one of the few things that's truly your own."
"This one's a great one for me," he said as we went home
"This one's a great one for me," he said as we went home
"This one's a great one for me," he said as we went home
