lyrics

It was years ago but I remember well
Your invite to dine at 27 O’dell
You cooked soup and dessert
I ate so well
You took along time I could tell
It was cold outside
In the foggy air
We talked in front of the fire under the stair
You poured another red
Thankyou I said
And continued to gaze into the glare
As I was thinking of something to say
You were looking my way
You legs curled up, your head rested in your hands
Why that picture stays with me I don’t understand
Everything inside since the day that I was born
was with me at that time and I felt so warm
I reached out and touched your chin
you took my hand and pulled it in
To rest upon your stomach on knitted wool
I felt that I was home
Beautiful
No matter what happens to me or what I do
I’ll not forget the way you took my hand like you
needed to
And though it only lasted a little while
I was glad to give my hand to one so lovely
and fragile
Everything inside since the day that I was born
Was calling me that night like so many nights before
Everything inside since the day that I was born
was with me at that time and I felt so warm
We fell asleep on the lounge
I didn’t move until the morning came around
When I awoke you’d left already that day
I heard your rooster crow as I drove away
