Thaw

You Ripped my heart from my chest
And fashioned a fine pair of slippers
So with each step you tread on me
So tread lightly please
That penny jar won’t get you far
But you can hitch a ride with me
How could I know you, how could I not
You’re like something I forgot
Like a twist in the plot (its got me tied up in knots)

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

The forecast called for a drop of rain
and then the flood came
The man I was is gone
Well good riddance and so long
Woman Woman won’t you help me please
You look through me with an ease
Tell me what do you see

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

All this running never taught us what we’re worth
So press me down between your body and the earth
Till it hurts, till it hurts no more, no more

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

To My Daughter

I was just a boy, barely seventeen
Good fortunate always smiled on me
I had philosophies on life and most of all love
But life leaves its mark on a man while love burns him up

I played a hand and came up a full house
And I made a stand like a mighty mighty mouse
This world is so big but it grows small with a child in your arms
My daughter is a fireball and I’m just the spark

We are taught to think and live on our own terms
But that there are mistruths is the first lesson I’ve learned
I’ve tried to believe in something so I could share with you a confidence
Thats theres reasons for everything but thats for you to decide

Your tiny hands are how I measure time
And the day will come when they fit into mine
It goes without saying that I am now and forever yours
You’re my greatest triumph in this world
Always my little girl
