The joys of a growing family, and of growing old.


Sitting down for dinner on a Sunday night Chairs scraping on the floor
Annie and Jimmy start to fill their plate While Dave reaches out for more
The baby’s crawling round underneath our feet – let her stay there for a while
Then Bob bursts in – running straight from the gym And you catch my eye and smile

Sometimes I don’t feel old enough To be showing these kids the way
The way they’ve been keeping me on my toes I just might take up ballet
The house is a-humming with the going and the coming – so fast my head’s a-spin
Still I thank the Lord that the life I’ve got Is the one that you are in

CHORUS: What a road it’s been Along the uphills and the downs
Through the winding streets Not a signpost to be found
Still we travel on Through this life we thought we knew
Cuz we’re learning as we go Both me and you

Sometimes I think back to the early days When we started on down this road
We had so little to weigh us down Still we struggled ‘neath the load
All the wrong turns taken and the dreams forsaken left us wiser for the trials
As we kept our faith the journey And in each other through the miles


All those good directions never did a bit of good Cuz we got lost no matter how we’d try
I’m not the quickest study but I’ve finally understood
The best path can take you by surprise… you improvise…

So as the years go spinning by us And as we watch our hair turn gray
Let this happy home be a beacon For travelers along the way
Cuz what we’ve learned as the seasons turned is a simple thing and true
That the joy that’s in your journey Is in those who walk with you
