Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro

---> Play Verse over:

Stranger flowers yet, there will never come a day that will ever regret

The hours, days, years and the minutes

The joy the pain the sunshine and rain in it

The drives on the coast to nowhere, nothing to say just sit and stare

There's nothing like the comfort of a silence that's comfortable

Not talking small, just skip the bull

Then I find myself in servility, didn't think that was my ability

I go a yard and a mile to make you smile, but then I'm happy see

I got so many ways to make your gaze elliptical

Got a ways to go, the future's so cryptical and I'm glad

Just another many things we've had

---> Play Fill

---> Play Chorus over:

It's 8:16 A.M. will you wake up to me, the first thing that you see

My eyes open, I'm just hopin' you feel the same as me

The day starts carefully

On the sidewalk with the dog, you're right last night I was a hog

Come on I'm sorry

It's 73 degrees, January easily glides

---> Play Intro

---> Play Verse over:

Stranger flowers still, if you're gonna wanna go another day I will

Like this, make it a deal, sealed with a kiss

Sealed with the feel of impermanent bliss

Today my love we shall let the world slide

Turn off the ringer and just glide

For we shall never be younger again than, what do you see

---> Play Fill

---> Play Chorus over:

It's 8:16 A.M. will you wake up to me, the first thing that you see

My eyes open, I'm just hopin' you feel the same as me

The day starts carefully

On the sidewalk with the dog, you're right last night I was a hog

Come on I'm sorry

Holiday on the radio, Billie knows that is the way to go

The way to go

---> Play Ending over:

A place where we both can spend our same time, not collecting interest

Maybe the same reason we always find ourselves homebound

I've got to do some homework

The leave response we want to leave Wisconsin for a new life

A new trailer with an antenna and a porch

Of course we'll bring the dog
