Grandma said that’s me and him,
in his daddy’s Model-T
Taken with his mama’s Kodak, in ’43
We laughed, we cried, reliving life
And when we got to ’78,
she said, Baby Girl that’s you right there,
with your first birthday cake.

I later learned the hard way,
that grandmas always die,
But pictures live forever and that’s why…

I’m looking forward to looking back.
A patchwork of memories
and good times we’ve had.
Snapshots in a shoebox
or an old paper sack,
I’m looking forward to looking back.

A photograph’s a time machine
go anywhere you want to,
I stop off in ’81 or 2002.
Let my lips take another sip
of yesterday’s wine,
In black and white or color,
I’m gonna let it all rewind.

I’m looking forward to looking back.
A patchwork of memories
and good times we’ve had.
Snapshots in a shoebox
or an old paper sack,
I’m looking forward to looking back.

A patchwork of memories
and good times we’ve had.
Snapshots in a shoebox
or an old paper sack,
I’m looking forward to looking back.
