Slow down,
F         Eb                F   
we've got time left to be lazy
        Bb        Bb/A         Gm F     Eb                F
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes.

We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
         Eb              Dm
I don't care to beg your pardon,

We should live

until we die.

We were barely eighteen when we'd crossed collective hearts.

It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye.
             Bb           Bb/A    Gm
and then you turned, put out your hand,
   F   Eb            F
and you asked me to dance.
        Eb          Dm                 Cm             F


I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.

I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
       Eb              F                             Bb Bb/A Gm F
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
Eb                     F
Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
             Bb               Bb/A            Gm
I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
         Eb                         F                        Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb

It was the winter of '86, and all the fields had frozen over.

although he thinks just like his mother,
      Eb                   Dm              Cm          F

he believes we're all just lovers he sees hope in everyone.

we always get calls from our daughter.
        Eb                 Dm
She has eyes just like her father's

they are blue when skies are grey
              Bb        Bb/A   Gm   F
And just like him, she never stops,
       Eb                F
Never takes the day for granted,
Eb                           Dm
works for everything that's handed to her,

Never once complains.

But like the night you took my hand beside the fire
        Eb       F
thirty years ago 
	 Bb
to this day
Eb                               F     
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
               Bb                 Bb/A           Gm
Well it's not time, you've never quit in all your life.
         Eb                         F                      Bb Bb/A Gm
So just take my hand, you know that I'll never leave your side.

and you kiss me on the eye
              Eb                Dm              Cm                F
You curse the dog you say that I should never feed them what is ours
           Bb      Bb/A    Gm    F
and so we move all to the garden
        Eb                F
look at everything we've owned
        Eb              Dm
now the kids are coming home
   Cm              Dm Eb F
so I set the table
                  Bb
You can make the fire.
