I thought that life was runnin' off, leavin' me behind
So like a fool I jumped the fence just to see what I could find
But love kept disappearing like children chasing fire flies in the dark
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

You'd never know it now, but I used to have it all
A swing set and a plastic pool, a shaggy dog that lived to fetch a ball
An angel with a glass of tea, laughin' at the kids and me
All soakin' wet from washin' that old car
And to think that I once had it all, in my own backyard

That bare spot's grown over now where third base used to be
And the weeds have choked out all the flowers
But they can't kill the memories
Lord, I'd love to run back home but there's no one there for me
And that grass I used to hate to mow sure is lookin' green

You'd never know it now, but I used to have it all
A swing set and a plastic pool, a shaggy dog that lived to fetch a ball
An angel with a glass of tea, laughin' at the kids and me
All soakin' wet from washin' that old car
And to think that I once had it all, in my own backyard

You'd never know it now, but I used to have it all, all, all
Once I had everything
In my own backyard
