We Wrote This Song Together
#1
Remember that time eating sushi, we couldn't stop laughing?
Sitting outside your front window ledge, talking?
How about my favorite time, making the cardboard camera?
Do you still sleep with that little cow I got you?

Remember Blazing Saddles lasting long after midnight,
the moon had a ring around it.
I should have gone back for the extra-butter popcorn,
'cause you shouldn't see movies without it.

I can't wait til Christmas comes and your presence sets the mood.
I could play my drum for Jesus, let me play my guitar for you.
I hope you find comfort in all the things you do,
we wrote this song together when I played it only for you.

I can almost see you laying there, with my eyes closed,
your leg outstretched, my hand resting on your toes,
reminiscing those few good times and inside jokes
before the dark months when I hurt you the most.

It's been many years since I wrote you that letter,
waiting to send but not sure that I'll ever,
'cause everyday I feel too late to say anything.
I wonder if my love will ever wear out,
or if it will leave a bitter taste in my mouth,
but the choices I've made, I can't complain about anything.

I can't wait til Christmas comes and GreyGoose sets the mood,
I played my drum for Jesus when I played my guitar for you.
I hope you find comfort in all the things you do,
we wrote this song together when I played it only for you.

Maybe one day we'll be in the same room and not notice,
but then our eyes will click and we'll have one of those moments,
and you'll remember back to that time that I wrote this.
You'll remember back...



It's fantastic!

Smile I like the little cow instead of the stuffed puppy.

And I like the way you sing these two lines:

'cause everyday I feel too late to say anything.
...
but the choices I've made, I can't complain about anything.
