Childhood Memories
by Gord Maxwell (2012)

When I first looked into those eyes
Took me totally by surprise
Right there that stare read everything in my mind

Just a few hours old
Another story not yet told
I could see she was already writing hers in bold

If I look into those eyes right now...

(Chorus) I can see that little girl
Like it was only yesterday
Back when I was her whole world
And I could kiss the pain away
Life marches on and the road gets steep
So much is lost but some things you get to keep
I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories

Building lemonade stands
That first trip to Disneyland
Christmas time, nursery rhymes, ten dirty snails in your hands

Puttin’ on a puppet show
Making angels in the fresh snow
Fashion trends, boyfriends, where did my little girl go?

Oh, but if I look into those eyes right now.…

(Chorus) I can see that little girl
Like it was only yesterday
Back when I was her whole world
And I could kiss the pain away
Life marches on and the road gets steep
So much is lost but some things you get to keep
I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories

(Bridge) Sometimes it gets so hard to put food on the table
But I can’t help but feel blessed
Just to still be able...

To look into those eyes
And see that little girl
I guess it comes as no surprise
She’s ready to take on the whole world
But life goes on, don’t get in too deep
Don’t lose sight of all that you need to keep
Try to hold on...

(Chorus) I can see that little girl
Like it was only yesterday
Back when I was her whole world
And I could kiss the pain away
Life marches on and the road gets steep
So much is lost but some things I get to keep
I’m trying to hold on to those childhood memories

Keep on holding on to those childhood memories
