In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey

Love this tune. I hear a lot of Tom Petty in Dennen's songs.
The lyric "I've gathered sunsets in my prime. Now I'm planting trees I'll never climb" cuts deep.

Where you goin' my brown-eyed son?
You used to crawl but now you run
You started off on a road half-dark
And the river curled into a question mark

Will you sleep on diamond beaches, dear?
And drink from prism streams so clear?
You don't have to be rich to get around
There are mansions growin' out of the ground

Days go by
Get out and see the world
Days go by
Get out and see the world with your own eyes

Now, the journey took you far from home
And pushed you out of your comfort zone
There are kids out there with war paint on
And hearts break like crayons

Before you left, the world was small
Now, the hills are bleedin' like waterfalls
There are a lot of bad things that are buried shallow
And cries for help with no echoes

Days go by
Get out and see the world
Days go by
Get out and see the world with your own eyes

It's hard to see what your going through
Just knowing can beat up on you
You'll spend some time in the waiting place
And the purest things may leave no trace

Go up the mountain top and shine
I'll reflect it on my long decline
I've gathered sunsets in my prime
Now, I'm planting trees I'll never climb

Days go by
Get out and see the world
Days go by
Get out and see the world with your own eyes
Your own eyes
Your own eyes
Your own eyes
