lyrics

I'm happy just thinking about you

and the life that we have shared for a while

every day we are together, it gets better and better

my hearts frozen like a fetter to your smile

And just like the first day we met dear

When you showed me all the colors in your eyes

I've been watching your love flowin' like the river breeze a' blowin'

I need a dam to keep it in and bright blue skies

And I will give to you

What you want me to

If it grows in the garden

Then for you I'd pick the fruit

I would like to see, all the selfishness in me

Go away, and with you I'd like to stay

I've never claimed to be near perfection

And certainly you see just what I am

But I'm trying to be honest and honestly I love you

and I'll honestly keep on the best I can

Your hair is like the willows near the water

Softer than the sunrise is your skin

Your certainly a keeper but your love goes much deeper

I've seen your boldest beauty lies within

I'll sing songs for you

How you want me to

If it somewhere on the scale

Then for you I'd sing the tune

I would like to see, all the selfishness in me

Go away, and with you I'd like to stay

If I've ever wandered please forgive me

I've drifted very far from your shore

The trap doors strongly trip me up, but when I drink

your loving cup, your anchor strongly pulls me back much more

I've invented words to help me listen

to act like swords against the slaying sounds

of the temptresses and tyrants

who rob our love like pirates

and who make us both forget the love we found

I'll make war for you

if i need to

If it comes near our hearts

then I'll cut it at it roots

I would like to see, all the selfishness in me

go away, and with you i'd like to stay
