This Is The Stuff (Arends Carolyn)

Riding along on a big yellow school bus Elmer's glue and a brand new lunch box Writing my name for the very first time With a pencil that was bigger than me From jumping rope and skipping school To doing things that grown-ups do Life goes by like, that big old bus If you miss it, it's history Paper dolls and paper weights Scraped up knees and hearts that break Dreams to dream and plans to make Love to give and love to take Chorus This is the stuff The smallest moments This is the stuff I need to notice This is the stuff life is made of Walking along as my life unravels Looking back at the road I've travelled All the things that matter most Have caught me by surprise Misty eyes and silent prayers Promises and secrets shared Friends that keep you up all night Laughing till you cry Life's made up of little things Ties that bind and apron strings New beginnings, old routines Love and heartache in between Repeat Chorus
