Flora Cash - A Good Childhood

Flora Cash – A Good Childhood

i wish that i could say i had a good childhood
i guess i’ve got some memories of running through the woods
and i believe i even built myself a tree house
but i can’t find a photo where i’m smiling with my teeth out

i wish i’d listened more to what my grandpa said
but i guess i got the gist of it, ‘cause now and then i hear him in my head
and what he says is i should aim high
“cause 99 percent of people never really live before they”

die wish i could do it all again
but meet you when i’m 10
‘be so much better with my best friend

wish i could do it all again
but meet you when i’m 10
‘be so much better with you

i wish i had another shot to grow up
but have you living next to me
that’s probably how it’s supposed to be

but then i chose some folks in Minnesota
born into a quirky family
that tried their best to manage me

but i was always running from my own love
or running from authorities
i really could’ve used your

company
on my street
we’d sure
be hard to beat

was it heaven or hell
it gets harder to tell
but i guess i was living in both

beauty breaking my heart
being scared of the dark
being scared to grow up
‘cause i would have to leave my mom

i just wish that i’d had you along
