Lyrics

Sometimes when I’m walking down the road
I see a little cottage, like something that I’ve known
In a dream, or maybe just a wish
That house keeps calling…

Roses tangled ‘round a covered porch
Where two old chairs are watching the seasons take their course
And that old house keeps calling out to me:
“You should’ve been here.”

CHORUS:
All I ever wanted was wildflowers in the yard
Reminding me of beauty when life comes down too hard
A pair of laughing eyes, a hand to hold
When I go walking.

Sometimes when the sun is sinking low
Lighting up that cottage with a fleeting golden glow
I hear whispers of a truth I need to know:
“I should’ve been here.”

But we lived in a big house with walls of glass and stone
Where marble hallways echoed the sound of all alone
And I waited for your heart to come back home
You should’ve been there.

CHORUS:
All I ever wanted was wildflowers in the yard
Reminding me of beauty when life comes down too hard
A pair of laughing eyes, a hand to hold
When I go walking….
When I go walking…..
When I go walking, walking down the road.

So many of us were spurred on to repair what had been neglected when life was "normal."
