I slip out the backdoor into the night
I can still feel the sun on my bare feet tonight
I am waiting to meet you
And waiting to see if you feel the same way about me

Back in the 70's
We were children of freedom
Believing we'd make a difference when our time would come
And in the darkness
When the 4th grade movie played
Our fingers touched togethe promising one day...that...

Tomorrow I will be yours
Tomorrow I will be yours
Out on a boat with the bell from the shore and the sun so low (so low or solo??)

I think I fell in love with ya
When we always tied for first
In clothes with holes and shoes too old and covered in dirt
Always makin' me laugh
Now you're - you're making me cry
Your parents made some money and sent you away
To a private prep school high...but

I slip out the backdoor and into the night
To the elm tree we promised we'd meet here tonight
I have opened the skin with my grandmothers pin
And we vowed under the stars to never forget
Midnight Orion is clear in the sky
I can feel you come closer to kiss me goodnight
Oh please kiss me and hold me and have me again
You're the one that I wanted

Tomorrow I will be yours (4 times)
Out on a boat with the bell from the shore, and the sun so low

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

I slip out the backdoor and into the night
All the years now between us dividing our lives
I hear that you married in New Orleans
And I wonder if you wonder still about me
Slip out the backdoor and into the night
To the elm tree I go and I laugh at Orion
"Cause there in the bark lies our hearts in the tree
Side by side
Freshly carved
Not by me
