lyrics

You had a tree in the backyard felled
When we were kids, its branches proudly held
A swing set in a sandbox made
By you Father with your skills of trade

In that sandbox I used to play
With my sisters ere we came of age
Building castles and then kicking them away
And now nothing of that time remains

Oh the memory of a world contained
In the confines of a yard you’d made
You built a castle and you kicked it away
Built up a kingdom just to let it fade

And the neighbours would all come to see
As we chased away the cat with glee
Swinging back and forth till wisdom came
Dooming interest in a sandbox to fade

Oh the memory of a world contained
In the confines of a yard you’d made
You built a castle and you kicked it away
Built up a kingdom just to let it fade

You had a tree in the backyard felled
And as it broke our sandbox quietly held
Its ruin in a tomb you’d made
And with it memories of much simpler days
