about

Notes: This one is a love song for Rebecca. It's for all of the years we've had, all the people we've been, all the years ahead, and all the people we'll be. It's about holding the image of who she has been in the same space as the image of the mother she'll be pretty soon. It's about living through good times and tough times together, which is to say it's about living life together. It's about anticipating the new and holding it up to the light.

lyrics

I'm catching the breeze
And could you believe it?
You're standing right next to me
And honey I must be dreaming

Mama I don't know
Just where all the years go
Wandering to and fro
From today to tomorrow
I'm gonna count them them best of mine
I try to hold them but it ain't worth trying

It's just time
So wait and see
What you and I
Get to hold up high
Like a diamond

I think of the night
Down by the water
New York a fading light
That held you as a daughter

And oh your eyes
Reflecting ages
By god they're catching mine
Another summer and they all go flying
It's years later and I catch you crying
I try to help, some things are bigger than trying

They need time
So wait and see
What you and I
Get to hold up high
Like a diamond

Some days branches shake
And some days they sway in the breeze

I'm barely awake
Blinking like a child
Here next to you
I want to stay a while
Nothing I wouldn't do
To make you crack a smile

It's just time
So wait and see
What you and I
Get to hold up high
Like a diamond
