The World and You

(Stars Turn Me On, 2012)

 

I come on out of the door and

The hill is green

The slope carries me floating

Down to the sea

I know I've left you

And it gives me a pang

But I know my day will bring me back to you again

 

I'm going to write a love song

Simple words and a simple tune

No need to complicate the

Simple story of me and you

 

You come on into the hall there are

Flowers in your arms

The banging door announces all your charms

The lightening of your smile is fixed in time

I keep it endlessly warming this heart of mine

 

I'm going to write a love song

Simple words and a simple tune

No need to complicate the

Simple story of me and you

 

This is reality now

This is a dream

Whatever we didn't know then I

Don't need to see

Whatever you told me then it

Still holds true

This is reality now I'm

Simply in love with you

 

There's nothing deep that I'm feeling

That I wish would stay

When I look back from the future and take

Stock of today

Blue sky

Green field

Ocean true

That's all I'm wishing for the

World and You
