The whole thing started in the Wintertime
Now, it's Summer right outside my door
I'm just like you, lover, waiting for good news
I wake up in the morning and you're next to me
Still, I'm feeling just a bit unsure
It's been a long time, lover, just trying not to lose

We were rolling right along, just like a Southbound train
Or, the thunder when the rains come in
Strong and true and certain in our time
Then the whole thing changed, not me and you
But the world that we were living in
I should've seen it coming, but I guess I missed the signs


Friends will visit now and then
Your sister's on the phone
As we try to sleep, it's just you and me
And, our baby in the other room
I hold you closely, all through the nite
I know it sure feels dark outside
But, it'll soon be light
My dear, the dawn is coming, it'll soon be light

Feeling every second like you can't escape
From the demons of the nite before
Harder still are the ones that you don't know
But, we've always been together, lover, now I feel
Like we're together just a little more
We got one shot, mama, let's give it our best go

You've got a Swan around your neck
There's an Eagle overhead and there's a Hawk sitting on our fence
I've got stones in my pocket, I'm seeing Butterflies
I'm writing letters to our friends, I'm writing songs for you
And, it seems like such a long time since
We could just sit around and think of nothing for a little while
