You’re sitting here in front of me

Floating in a cloud

Your chocolate eyes meet mine

And you’re whispering out loud

Words that make me shiver

Thoughts that make me melt

And I can only be thankful

For the deal I’ve been dealt

For the woods outside this window

For this guitar on my knee

For the smile on your lips

For the good you found in me

Looking at the woodstove

And the towels upon the sink

With your fingers on my forehead

All that I can think is

Life is beautiful

For the way you kiss my fingers

For the way you hold my hands

For the way you look

In those leather pants

For the times like now when I just gotta

Roll another smoke

Breath deeply for a minute

And take another toke


And when it’s over

And the afternoon is done

We can spend the evening dreaming

Of the rising of the sun

And even when the shadows

Look me right in the eye

I feel your heart within my belly

Like the stars up in the sky
