dead leaves and the dirty ground
shiny tops and soda pops
when I hear your lips make a sound
Thirty notes in the mailbox
and I think I'm gonna stick around
for a while so you're not alone
if you can hear a piano fall
if I can just hear your pretty voice
don't think I need to see at all
soft hair and a velvet tongue
and every breath that is in your lungs
is a tiny little gift to me
I didn't feel so bad 'til the sun went down
no one to wrap my arms around

can tell you what he loves the most
if you're thinking of the holy ghost

Thanks to CLINTON for the correction
