"Crabtree And Evelyn" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
I catch a hint of how you smelt
On the 1st day that we met
As I hang up your blue pants
Next to mine, we're intertwined
In my closet and I'm reminded of
The greenest eyes that ever burned from behind

Crabtree and Evelyn

Neither could have known the plans that were in store
I'm seeing our home again
You're decorating
The walls with pieces from the waters of your shipwrecked past
Trying to make sense of how two of the darkest lives
Came together to give this world light
A world that's cracking and leaking all around me
I can spend my day knowing my love for my lady
Every song we hear, was written just for you and for me
We can show up late and leave early
I catch a hint of how you smelt
On the 1st day that we met
I feel the aching and yearning of being that you bury in me
The gift of the moment I'm in reminds me of
The greenest eyes that ever burned from behind

    General Commentthis song is great because rocky takes a simple, mundane chore like folding laundry and turns it into a sincere, earnest love song of the most potent kind. he really shows how your sense memory can take you back to a moment in time. killer songwriter, this guy.
