I've got rippling waters to wake me to the morning, my woman in love,
Blue Spruce flaming on the grate in the evening, takes the chill away fine,
There's a worn red chair by the window that she found at a sale down the way,
People like pulling out the stuffing when they sit down, so it passes the time,

That you feel too good to go away and you make me feel fine.
On a gray spot, put a little lace and you make me feel fine,

Seems like most of the time you're lying there dreaming.
Cut the telephone line, the story's the same.
And the closest I've been to my family for days is my music.
Cut the telephone line, the story's the same.
Ooh, like a bubble on a windy day, start to flutter when I hear you say,
Warm as a mountain sunshine, on the edge of a snowline, in a meadow of Columbine.
