Song Description

Sometimes people from long ago cross your mind. That moment is what this song is about.

Story Behind the Song

Just thinking one day and this came out. The great Hank Thomas heard it and offered to do a vocal on it. This is what I heard in my head.

Lyrics

Scribbles in the Margins

Lyrics & Music by JD Carroll
©J. D. Carroll Creative Ventures Music, Inc. ASCAP


Do you ever think about me
from that time so long ago?
All the singing and the laughing
with the friends we used to know
Do I ever cross your mind
when you think of times long gone?
Do you ever wonder how it all went so wrong?

Doesn't really matter
and I don't really care.
I know we've both moved on
and there's nothing left back there.
But every now and then
I have to turn around
and take a look at what I lost to value what I've found.

The times that we trade are the pages of our book
Our stories and our songs we believe
The scribbles in the margins are the notes that we took
Of our heros, our villains, our saviors and our thieves.

If I by chance saw you
I don't know what I'd say.
Maybe I'd just smile
nod and walk away.
but I would probably stop and hug
ask you how you'd been
what have you been up to and how we should stay in touch again.

We can say we're all grownup
but we're still like little kids.
Act real tough and hide our fears
just like we always did.
But deep inside we can't deny
a truth that oh so real
sometimes it's best to not let on exactly how we feel.

The times that we trade are the pages of our book
Our stories and our songs we believe
The scribbles in the margins are the notes that we took
Of our heros, our villains, our saviors and our thieves.

Instrumental

The scribbles in the margins are the notes that we took
Of our heros, our villains, our saviors and our thieves.
