Time & Curiosity

Time & Curiosity
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

I found my dad’s old yearbook under stacks of magazines
Golden eagle on the cover, pages leather-bound in green
I put it in the box of things Momma told me I should take
She’s doin’ alright
Most days

It’s not that I was hiding
Or thought I could forget
Shoved it to the side
I just wasn’t ready yet
To face the loss of
What I never thought I’d lose
It was so dark that day

Time and curiosity
He played guitar just like me

“Can’t wait to hear you on the radio”
“See you on the walk of fame”
His eyes so full of dreams that didn’t even know my name
A ticket stub taped beside the photo of a girl
Who wrote “I’ll miss your songs, but I know we’ll meet again, someday.”

And I wish I could’ve asked him what all the secrets meant
I wish he’d told me just where all those dreams went
Did he change his mind, or swallow his regrets?
Were they the best of times — those days?

Time and curiosity
He played guitar just like me

I’ve got my dad’s old yearbook on the shelf next to my own
The boy I was beside a boy I could not have known
And what he gave up along the way — did I give up along the way?
They fly by so fast
These days

Time and curiosity
He played guitar just like me

And what he gave up along the way
Does we all give up along the way
Trading tomorrows and yesterdays
For today
