Walk the Distance - Lyrics

I was nine years old with a dream
Just a tiny kid, tryna fit in
And in between the times when I'm showing up at school
I was with my friends, and I'm acting like a fool
I'm dropping by the house, I'm in need of mama's shelter
Dropping by to see if there was anything that I could do to help her
Whether that be taking out the trash or trashing up the kitchen
It's never safe to say with all the meals that you were cooking
Every Sunday waking up to hot cakes
Wait in line, see how much time that takes
Feeding five of us kids sitting ring around the table
When you were walking ill and barely able
And our lunch bags had smiles of their own
I brought it into school, if I didn't leave it home
I was on the move when your days were feeling long
I was into trouble, you was barely holding on

Wouldn't change, hear me out, listen
What I needed, shook my eyes and vision
Used to be a time, wishing it was different
Found it difficult, had to walk the distance
Know you're gone, miss your kitchen
What you used to cook, love fixes
Used to be a time, wishing it was different
Found it difficult, had to walk the distance

I was ten years old on a bike
Dreams of going big member what it was like
Adrenalin rush, out there looking for a jump
I was never good, but I thought I was a champ
I often came home with bruises on my knees
Never had keys, you were there to let me in
Patching me up, fixing supper, taking care
Making sure my pain and my troubles disappear
Airing out my lungs became a habit every night
What I had seen was the things that I would write
And despite the fact that it was rarely any good
At least I felt like audiences really understood
Up in all the mix you had a spiral of your own
In and out of hospitals became your second home
I was on the move, tryna find where I belong
Often found a spot, but I knew that it was wrong

Wouldn't change, hear me out, listen
What I needed, shook my eyes and vision
Used to be a time, wishing it was different
Found it difficult, had to walk the distance
Know you're gone, miss your kitchen
What you used to cook, love fixes
Used to be a time, wishing it was different
Found it difficult, had to walk the distance
