lyrics

Roadside Flowers

She’d be happy with a cola bottle filled with roadside flowers-
Queen Anne’s Lace and buttercups and purple morning glories
My nimble fingers tip-toeing down her spine
I can feel the electricity tingling up and down my own

Jump, jump for the joy that’s bubbling up inside
If we reach, reach for the stars then maybe we’ll touch the moon
If it’s all right with you can I stay here for good?
I never thought that I’d find heaven on earth

Wild cascades oflight brown hair- she tames into a bun
She dips her foot into the lake and stirs it like a teacup
Basil, Dill, and, Rosemary - she plucks fresh from her garden
You and I swing and sway preparing the night’s meal

Jump, jump for the joy that’s bubbling up inside
If we reach, reach for the stars then maybe we’ll touch the moon
If it’s all right with you can I stay here for good?
I never thought that I’d find heaven on earth

All her gifts come made by hand wrapped in relevance and meaning
Her handwritten letters are seeds of optimism
Her beauty runs inside out. She never seems to age a day
I’m plunging into new depths of adoration

Jump, jump for the joy that’s bubbling up inside
If we reach, reach for the stars then maybe we’ll touch the moon
If it’s all right with you can I stay here for good?
I never thought that I’d find heaven on earth
