Lyrics:

"OLD iPHONE" BY TIM SETTLE

VERSE 1

IT'S JUST AN OLD iPHONE
FIFTH GEN 4S
BEEN SITTIN' IN A DRAWER
FOR FIVE YEARS I GUESS
I PLUGGED IT UP TO SEE IF IT WOULD TURN
ON
AND SURE ENOUGH BEFORE TO LONG IT DID
AND THEN

CHORUS 1

I WENT SCROLLING THROUGH THOSE PICTURES
AND TEARS FLOWED LIKE A RIVER FROM MY EYES
THAT NOVEMBER DAY MY BOYS WERE BORN
ME AND THEIR MOM YEARS BEFORE
PRECIOUS MOMENTS FROZEN THERE IN TIME
A LITTLE HAPPY AND SAD
I'M SO GLAD I STILL HAVE
THIS OLD iPHONE

VERSE 2

MY OLE' DOG K.B.
WAS JUST A PUPPY BACK THEN
TIME'S GOT AWAY FROM ME
I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT WENT
AND I'M NOT ONE TO READ INTO THE UNKNOWN
BUT I SWEAR THAT HEAVEN SPOKE THROUGH THAT PHONE THAT NIGHT
WHEN I

CHORUS 2

LISTENED TO OLD VOICEMAILS
MY DAD HAD LEFT ME I FELT RIGHT AT HOME
SON COME EAT WITH ME AT 5PM
GOD I WISH I KNEW BACK THEN
IN A FEW SHORT YEARS HE'D BE GONE
AND I MISS HIM SO BAD
WISH I COULD CALL HIM BACK
ON THIS OLD iPHONE

VERSE 3

IT WAS GOOD FOR MY HEART
TO LET THE MEMORIES ROLL
LIKE A RAY OF SUNSHINE
ZINGING THROUGH MY SOUL
THANKS FOR MAKING ME LAUGH
THANKS FOR TAKING ME BACK
OLD iPHONE
