Lyrics

It was a February day
When your dad came by before goin' away
A U-Haul truck in the driveway
The day it was suddenly real

I told you not to come outside
But you saw that truck and you smiled so wide
A real live truck in your driveway
We let you sit behind the wheel

Goodbye, goodbye
Now it's just me and my little guy

And the house felt so big
And I felt so small
The house felt so big
And I felt so small

That night, I tucked you into bed
I will never forget how you sat up and said
"Is there another truck comin' to our driveway?
A truck that will take mommy away?"

And the house felt so big
And I felt so small
The house felt so big
And I...

And I knew there would be moments that I'd miss
And I knew there would be space I couldn't fill
And I knew I'd come up short a million different ways
And I did, and I do, and I will

But like that February day
I will take your hand, squeeze it tightly and say:
"There's not another truck in the driveway
Your mom isn't goin' anywhere
Your mom is stayin' right here"
Your mom isn't goin' anywhere
Your mom is stayin' right here
No matter what
I'll be here...

When it all feels so big
'Til it all feels so small
When it all feels so big
'Til it all feels so small
'Til it all feels so small
