Hand print on wall
In blue paint, made by me
Handprints on wall
I made them when I was three
Handprints on wall
Remind of simpler time
Handprints on the wall
I can't believe they'remine

Since then
My handprints gotten bigger
My world has too
It has lot more dreams and ambitions 
And problem too
 When you're three
Your only conniption
Is who will take you to zoo

Handprints on the wall
Remind me of time 
Where my life was simple 
My world was small
But no matter how much has change me
If look with magnify glass of prints
And agonizing look at my prints too
You find 
That the loop on finger tips are same 
And so are line

That the beauty of handprints 
They stay forever
As you grow over
Every thing seems to change 
But that's not ll true 
But the hand print on wall
Still belong to you
