As I lay upon my bed, I begin dreaming
Of how it's gonna be the day that I am free
Once I settle like the dust upon the table
But then you came along
You helped me write this song

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

Like a tired bird flying high across the ocean
I was outside looking in
You made me live again
From the mountains to the prairies little babies
Figures fill their heads
Visions bathed in red

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

From the train in Manchester, England
Lightning fills the sky
As I watched you wave goodbye
From the mountains to the prairie little babies
Figures fill their heads
Visions bathed in red

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

    General Comment:I think it's about how love will sneak up on you. That you're going along fine in your world, being free and all that then someone comes around and you realize that you do need someone to share your life with. And your joy overflows and you lose track of time and all you do know is that you love that person and it's for all the right reasons. Not lust or revenge, avoidence... but for friendship, a helper, support, security... sigh, love is sweet.

    General Comment:I agree with smilingfox. Love will sneak up on you. From the first time I heard this song, I thought it was pretty. It reminds me that life goes by so quickly and love is so rare and beautiful. Maybe "All the Right Reasons" means that you don't expect anything in return. He feels this woman has made him "live again" and what an incredible gift that is.


    **The only lyric that confuses me is, "little babies". I mean, I love little babies, but couldn't there have been something else there?

    General Comment:I agree with the sneak up on you part - and he doesn't understand how love happens but he accepts it.

    As for little babies, I think he is saying it is the same as how babies just absorb what is around them and smile laugh cry, they have no choice like we have no choice. life happens and we can't help how we feel.
