The Best Day

I have to admit that I am a total Taylor Swift fan. I know, I am 27, not 16, but we have one of her CDs, and I really like her music. She's got some really good lyrics, atleast on the CD we have. I haven't really listened to her other stuff.

Anyway, the other night I had a rare night out with a girlfriend, and on my way home, I put on some Taylor Swift. I've heard this song many times and really love it, but listening to it the other night made me think of my Nora girl. She's growing so fast, and my days with her seem to pass so quickly. It made me sad, but happy at the same time. Music has a way of doing that to me.

Here's a video of the song I just found on Youtube. I teared up just watching it. Enjoy! Also, I posted the lyrics. Such a sweet song!

I'm five years old, it's getting cold, I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you, I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides, look now, the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
But I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother, inside and out, he's better than I am
I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
For staying back and watching me shine
And I didn't know if you knew, so I'm takin' this chance to say
That I had the best day with you today
