Chris Young - The Shoebox

rate me

I stumbled on a bunch of junk of mine <br />In a shoebox the other night <br />In between cleaning up files and messes that I’d made of my life <br />That I’ve made of my life <br /> <br />Ticket stubs, poems, and old letters <br />I dumped them all out on the bed <br />Found a homemade birthday card, from mom <br />And this is what it said <br />Yeah, this is what it said <br /> <br />(Chorus) <br />Don’t forget the little moments <br />They’re the ones that mean the most <br />When the way home seems so far away <br />Take ’em out and hold them close <br />And take a picture with your father <br />Cause one day he’ll be gone <br />And don’t forget to fill an old shoe box <br />Full of things to look back on <br />Full of things to look back on <br /> <br />I opened up my grandpa’s pocket knife <br />And I was back to his front porch <br />It was summertime, I was turnin’ nine <br />He says,… you want that knife, it’s yours! <br />I remember runnin’ off in the yard <br />Carved my name in every tree <br />I haven’t held it since he passed away <br />And it meant the world to me <br />Because he meant the world to me <br /> <br />(Chorus) <br />Don’t forget the little moments <br />They’re the ones that mean the most <br />When the way home seems so far away <br />Take ’em out and hold them close <br />And take a picture with your father <br />Cause one day he’ll be gone <br />And don’t forget to fill an old shoe box <br />Full of things to look back on <br /> <br />Look back on…. <br />A little window to the past <br />Look back on……. <br />God know life goes by so fast <br />If ever you should ever doubt the blessings that you’ve had….. <br /> <br />(Chorus) <br />Don’t forget the little moments <br />They’re the ones that mean the most <br />When the way home seems so far away <br />Take ’em out and hold them close <br />And take a picture with your father <br />Cause one day he’ll be gone <br />And don’t forget to fill an old shoe box <br />Full of things to look back on <br /> <br />I stumbled on a bunch of junk of mine <br />In a shoebox the other night……….<br /><br />
