Reading letters
Ancient coins
And pockets full of earth
Chance I'll see you
Next December

Bathtub running
Joining hands
And naked as a bird
That's a vision
I'll remember

Pull the covers of the bed
The papers of the ground
Now a baby
Walks where you do

Take her book off of the shelf
And put your teacup down
Know my hopes
Lay beside you

You're camera set in motion
Take a picture of the ocean
Catch the seagull up above
Make a whisper of your love

Put your hair and watch it grow
This time durates the floor
You're a beauty in the family
Spend your money for the month
He can afford you more
Keep your courage like memory

You're camera set in motion
Take a picture of the ocean
Catch the seagull up above
Make a whisper of your love

    General Comment:This song is so bittersweet and amazing, just about how time keeps going and all we can do is remember what's happened, we can't slow it down.

    Also, I'm pretty sure it's
    Cut your hair and watch it grow
    This time to reach the floor

    General Comment:I'm pretty sure he says "Joint in hand" not "Joining hands"
