From the album Act of Kindness

Lyrics

Down in the courtyard a red bird flies in a tree
And the wood from that old oak has buried my family
Voices from my childhood echo full of glee
And the house needs paint and the weeds grow high
But it’s still home to me
You can toss out the old and bring in the new
But as long as I am home I’ll be with you
After your gone and you fade away
As long as I am home I’ll be with you
Mr Reid sold nails to my daddy so he could build things out of wood
They’d drink by the river & Reed would say daddy was no good
Daddy would laugh and point at our house and say “In a hundred years,”
He’d be buried by the home he built
And that he had no fears
You can toss out the old and bring in the new
But as long as I am home I’ll be with you
After your gone and you fade away
As long as I am home I’ll be with you
