Christian French – evergreen Lyrics

Lyrics evergreen – Christian French

Off and on since 17
Still got the grass stains on my jeans
From when we’d meet up at the park
Under the trees watching the stars
Swore you were all I’d ever need

We stole your brothers mary jane
‘Cause life was just all fun and games
And though the years have come to pass
The memories they’ll always last
Just like the leaves of evergreens

It seems like yesterday
We were parked in my driveway
Giving up and parting ways
I wish I stayed, had to leave

And I know it sounds cliché
But you’re the one that got away
You’ll always be
My evergreen
My evergreen

It’s been five years since we last spoke
It’s crazy how the time has flown
Now you’re a teacher back at home
And I’m on tour playing shows
Somehow I’ve always kept you close

It seems like yesterday
We were parked in my driveway
Giving up and parting ways
I wish I stayed, had to leave

And I know it sounds cliché
But you’re the one that got away
You’ll always be
My evergreen
My evergreen

Maybe somewhere down the road
When we’re washed up, gray and old
We could meet up at that park
Under that tree and watch the stars
Pick up the pieces that we broke

‘Til then I’m counting down the weeks
Before the next time that we meet
And even though you might forget
And maybe wish we never met
Just know you’ll always be
My evergreen…
