lyrics

"Too young, too thoughtless," I said to myself
with realistic visions all perched on the shelf
'cause I'm still hoping, waiting for you to come home.

May your snow capped mountains carry you far.
May they stand as protectors wherever you are.
May you stay safe and happy all of your days.

Oh James
Oh James

Maybe you're in love or hung up on another
Maybe you found a far prettier lover
Maybe you'll paint her a picture like you did for me

You color your world with that Neverland smile
but it goes dark in pieces every once in a while
and on my birthday I told you, "Dont worry, there'll be other days."

Oh James
Oh James

I'll always be happy if you choose to call
or write me a letter saying all that you saw and
how things have changed since our days there on Noxontown Pond

No don't be a stranger, no don't go too far
and though you love places that have lots of stars
just know in the city, you'll always have a place to stay

Oh James
Oh James
