lyrics

my girl is reading at the table
the dog is laying on the floor
I’m putting things away and waiting
for the tea kettle to boil

the buds are swelling on the magnolia
forsythia beginning to bloom
I’m grateful for the way
the three of us
just breath together in this room

deeper than a sense of belonging
stronger than the ties that bind
how did I get to be living here
in the watermelon heart of life

knowing nothing lasts forever
so why look ahead or behind
better take a coat
when you leave dear,
it’s colder than it looks outside

nothing’s gonna last forever
so why look ahead or behind
better take a coat
when you leave dear,
it’s colder than it looks outside
