Bed is for sleeping
Love is for making
You know love I am yours for the taking

My eyes are for seeing
The wind is for blowing
And you see love I am yours for the knowing

And night is for dreaming
Sleep is for bedding
I will dream with you the night on our wedding
You have a splinter, and I have a thimble
I will pull it in with movements so nimble

And tears are for falling
Smiles are for breaking
Houses for burning
And kisses for faking

And where are you going?
And why are you leaving?
Left on the walkway
To swallow my grieving

    General CommentThis is song is fantastic. It begins softly with a perfect lead-up to the "Where are you going part" with Matt Sweeney offering stellar backups. The song seems to be about a failed relationship (or marriage) from the happy moments to the depressing.

    General CommentI agree.

    I'm trying to find lyrics for 'My Home is the Sea'

    But I might type them out myself.

    General CommentOh this song is really beautiful, fantastic harmonies!! The purest love, the completely giving love, and then the rejection. Agh!! Brilliant!
