Lyrics

Your first words let me know you’d arrived
A primal scream to say you’re finally alive
I was scared-my life was changing too
They all said you’d do just what you would do

Growin’ up we gave you everything that we could
What I never had just like anyone would
It’s never enough-no, not for kids these days
They all said you’d say just what you’d say

So much I could tell you
(Would I listen?)
If you were near me
(Something’s missing)
I’ve been everywhere that you hope to go
Can you hear me?
Didn’t have it so easy
(It’s so hard)
When I was your age
(I’m not like you are)
I walked everywhere back and forth
Uphill Both Ways

Seems like life and death everything you do
And just one mistake forever follows you
You’re never wrong at least that’s what you say
Wish I knew half of what I knew back in the day

So much I could tell you
(Would I listen?)
If you were near me
(Something’s missing)
I’ve been everywhere that you hope to go
Can you hear me?
Didn’t have it so easy
(It’s so hard)
When I was your age
(I’m not like you are)
I walked everywhere back and forth
Uphill Both Ways

Your first words let me know you’d survived
And your sleek outside masked a rough ride
You’re just starting out, thinking you’re at the end
Reach down and find the will to begin again

So much I could tell you
(Would I listen?)
If you were near me
(Something’s missing)
I’ve been everywhere that you hope to go
Can you hear me?
Didn’t have it so easy
(It’s so hard)
When I was your age
(I’m not like you are)
I walked everywhere back and forth
Uphill Both Ways
