Braids Lyrics | Lilly Van Sickle

Four years old I was a cranky little mess
But I still said please and still wore a dress
A curious age with big dreams and no cares
I would rip out all the bows in my hair

You’d look down at me as I’d hug your legs
And we’d settle on pigtail braids
And I’ll never forget the way you’d say

It’s tangled up, but it’s not a knot
It’s beautiful, but it’s still taut 
So entwined and so bound together
That it feels like it can stay forever
Something I’ve learned with time and with age
I love these braids

Life comes with its own stresses and fears
Which makes dented walls and broken mirrors
I took it out on you and I knew you were right
So I’ll take this time to apologize

Because it’s tangled up, but it’s not a knot
It’s beautiful, but it’s still taut 
So entwined and so bound together
That it feels like it can stay forever
Something I’ve learned with time and with age
I love these braids

I love Fridays at Town House
Game nights and cookouts 
How you love me with all my doubts
Our laugh, our resemblance 
Your faith and your confidence 
How you swear there’s nothing I can’t accomplish 

I hope that you’ll dream of me in your slumber
Always remember don’t let it encumber
All of our nights and our days
And I pray, you’ll never forget these braids

We’re tangled up, but we’re not a knot
We’re beautiful, but we’re still taut 
So entwined and so bound together
I wish I can stay forever
It’s something I’ve learned with time and with age
I love how I love you
And I love these braids

I love these braids
