Four Minute Symphonies - Lyrics

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
