"My whole life is packed in boxes, treasures I've collected through the years ..."

Lyrics

I just take life day by day
Try not to think where I’ve been or what I’ve done
Don’t want to find myself regretting
’Bout how I wish my life had gone
I’d rather stroll through a summer garden
Smell pretty blossoms in the spring
Or maybe go ’n see an old friend
Talk about our younger days ’n how long it’s been

Sometimes I find myself just reminiscing
’Bout how my life used to be
Like skipping stones in the water
And watch those ripples head on out to sea
Those memories are my special treasures
Yet they never were at the time
Only when we’re older and more thoughtful
Those are the treasures in life we often find

My whole life is packed in boxes
Treasures I’ve collected through the years
Seems the special meaning they once held for me
Has faded like Auld Lang Syne last New Year’s Eve

And now when I look in the mirror
Old memories are staring back at me
Like the graveyard in the dead of winter
Where those I love and miss rest in peace
Treasures I let slip away forever
Christmas gifts I never wrapped
Memories of what I wish I’d done
Like hopes and dreams I once had, come and gone

My whole life is packed in boxes
Treasures I’ve collected through the years
Seems the special meaning they once held for me
Has faded like Auld Lang Syne last New Year’s Eve
Seems the special meaning they once held for me
Has faded like Auld Lang Syne last New Year’s Eve
