Back to Then They Do lyrics

Then They Do

In the early rush of morning
Trying to get the kids to school
One's hangin' on my shirt tail
The other's locked up in her room
And I'm yellin' up the stairs
"Stop worrying about your hair, you look fine"

Then they're fightin' in the back seat
And I'm playing referee
Now someone's gotta go
The moment that we leave
And everybody's late
I swear I can't wait 'til they grow up

Then they do
And that's how it is
It's just quiet in the morning
Can't believe how much you miss
All they do
And all they did
You want all the dreams they've dreamed of to come true
Then they do

Now the youngest is starting college
She'll be leaving in the fall
And Brianna's latest boyfriend
Called to ask if we could talk
And I've got the impression
That he's about the pop the question any day

I look over at their pictures
Sittin' in their frames
I see them as babies
I guess that'll never change
You pray all their lives
That someday they will find happiness

Then they do
And that's how it is
It's just quiet in the morning
Can't believe how much you miss
All they do
And all they did
You want all the dreams they've dreamed of to come true
Then they do

No more Monday PTAs
No more carpools or soccer games
Your work is done
Now you've got time that's all your own
You've been waiting for so long
For those days to come

Then they do
And that's how it is
It's just quiet in the morning
Can't believe how much you miss
All they do
And all they did
You want all the dreams they've dreamed of to come true
Then they do
Oh, and then they do
