Ten

Album: Southern Air (2012)
  • This bittersweet song finds lead singer Ryan Key recalling how in his younger days he got his girlfriend pregnant. She ended up having a miscarriage and Key imagines what his relationship to the child might have been ten years on. "You would be ten and I'd be driving you to school," he sings. "You would tell all your friends that you thought I was cool. And you would have all the love in my heart."
